UMass publishes 2006 recruiting list

UPDATE #3-2:30 pm 02/02/06. UMass beat writer Matt Vautour of the Hampshire Gazette has an article on the UMass recruits here (registration required, but worth it)

- 7:30 am, 02/02/06. Jeff Thomas of the Springfield Union has an article on the UMass recruits here.

- 9:00 pm, 02/01/06. The UMass website has added Coach Brown's comments on the recruiting class. Read it here .

UMass has released its 2006 recruit list . Welcome aboard to all the new UMass players!

Some points of interest:
  • 6 JUCO's
  • DL 1
  • OL 2
  • DB 4
  • TE 2
  • LB 2
  • K/p 1
  • WR 3
  • RB 1
Some initial comments:

  1. During the build-up to the recruiting season, it was speculated that UMass most needed help on the OL/DL. With only 1 defensive lineman and two OL in this recruiting class, it would be likely that UMass is not done with recruiting.
  2. 6 JUCO's are probably a UMass record.
  3. The list does not count Tim Washington, the transfer from Syracuse.

Interesting that Coach Brown must have lost confidence in the placekicker Cuko since he recruited another Pk/Punter and a
Juco none the less! I agree though recruiting is far from over.

No big surprise Brwon went after a PK, Cuko was just awful last year, but I will cut him some slack, he was only a Freshmen. I'm a little shocked Brown did try to sign more guys for the OL.
