2006 Recruit DB DeMarcus Robinson

Appearing on the UMass 2006 commitment list with no announcement that I could find, is 5-10 170 pd DB DeMarcus Robinson of Sunrise Fl.

Robinson had previously committed to Rutgers, but has switched to UMass.

He is a strong addition to UMass football:
  • Was a Rivals two-Star recruit
  • Also recruited by Kansas, Kansas State and UCF
  • Ran a blistering 4.3 forty in the Nike Combine
  • Played in two All-Star games
  • 2nd Team all County in the talent rich South Florida
  • 54 tackles in 8 games, 9 pass breakups, 1 INT, 3 TFL
  • 3 TDs on returns.
Welcome to UMass DeMarcus!

Over on the UMass Hoops board "Umass student" is saying we got a big OL from Maryland! He's Brabdon Nixon(6'6 315) with 2 years left.

Heard about that about a month ago.

Since it was not confirmed, I did not publish.

Last I was informed, Nixon was still undecided.

If true, then he should be an instant starter at left tackle...
