Akron loses two players

March, 29, 2010
Just a couple of practices into spring football, new Akron football coach Rob Ianello has lost a couple of players.

Sophomore running back DeVoe Torrence and sophomore quarterback Jared Wackerly have decided to leave the team for personal reasons.

“After meeting with DeVoe and his family as well as Jared and his family, they have decided to transfer to other institutions,” Ianello said in a statement. “I wish them the best in their future endeavors."

Torrence played in seven games last season and had 30 carries for 146 yards. Wackerly played sparingly in three games, completing 4 of 5 passes for 36 yards.

Both players were expected to compete for time this spring.
