The UMass website has bios of eight new Minutemen.

Several have the potential to start. Ben Bohnenberger and Cole Garcia should contend for starting positions on the OL. Conner Vasher could also be in the mix.

Jalen Mackie could also be the impact play on defense.

Mackie was a FCS All-American and a First Team All Ivy. Led the Ivy league with 9.6 tackles per game.

The Minutemen have not had a tackling machine linebacker since Bryton Barr and Jarell Addo.
