Akron lands Glenville guard Jimond Ivey

Jimond Ivey as shown above, decides to commit to the Akron program for the 2014 class.

Glenville guard Jimond Ivey made a oral commit Saturday evening to join the men’s basketball program at the University of Akron. Florida International, Cleveland State, Eastern Tennessee State and Fairmont State were schools that also offered Ivey a scholarship. Ottman, who attends Westside High School, averages 11.2 points and 1.1 rebounds, as a senior for a squad with a 17-10 record.  “The coaches welcomed me with open arms,” Ivey said. “It’s like a family there. I like the environment and it’s a good opportunity for me.” “I’m happy for him,” Holt said. “I’ve known Akron coach Keith Dambrot for a long time and he understands our kids. I’m just excited because this is my fourth Division I player and everyone that has gone off to a Division I school has done well.”


Ivey, who has not decided on a major yet, will be Glenville coach Michael Holt’s fourth player to compete on the Division I level, joining Justin Dobbins (Eastern Michigan), Rayshawn Goins (James Madison) and Randal Holt (Kent State).
