UPDATE- 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
- 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.
- 6 JUCO's are probably a UMass record.
- The list does not count Tim Washington, the transfer from Syracuse.
