Recruiting 2008---OT Travis Poston

UMass is recruiting Travis Poston a 6-7 315 pd OT from Horsham, PA.

His Rivals page is here . His Scout.com page is here . He is First-team Pittsburgh All-Combine.

He has an offer from Temple. Drawing interest from Big East and ACC schools. B.C., UConn, Maryland and others.

At least four CAA schools (UMass, Villanova, Delaware and Richmond) are recruiting him.

Travis, take a long look at UMass!

He is giantic, but terribly soft. His teamates call him marshmellow....

UMass has a state-of-the-art 9,000 square foot weight room.

Coach "O" is one of the best in the business in strength training.

He could not pick a better place for conditioning.

umass74, when was the last time you saw the "State of the art weight room"? It is still like an old gym and far outdated from most other D1 programs. It's like the stadium---outdated and small. I hope this isn't what UMass hangs it's hat on th get Travis. If so, we lose. The one thing you eluded to, I think you are correct on, is the coach being knowledgeable and UMass being a program that knows how to develop it's talent for the future. But, if the rumor going around has any vadility to it that Brown is looking to leave for Pitt then some of the above may not hold true for recruits in the future. Let's hope that Brown sticks around for a couple of more years.

Um, don't know what you're talking about with that one. The UMass weight room is new as of 2003.

It's one of the best in the CAA.

I dont understand why you would want Travis to come here. He is just a big body with little to no football skills at the high school level. Ive seen him play many times and doubt he could even play at the D1-AA/FCS level.

This is a pretty old and probably dead blog but I wanted to inform "anonymous" that the terribly soft marshmellow Travis Poston that we lost made 1st Team All Conference, All SE PA, All PA. Football News and was selected for the PA east West All Star Game.
We could use a few more guys with his "little or no football skills" like that.

Travis Poston has committed to Villanova and has recieved many high school football honors.. It is a shame that we did not pick him up, he was a very highly recruited prospect and probably could have gone to a D-1A school. He will be competeing against us when he gets to villanova.. I guess we will see how much of a "marshmellow" and how little skill he really has.. I hope you are right..

Dissing Travis and the UMass weight room was undoubtedly a troll intended to turn him off UMass.

d-1 football 78: There's no sense in crying over spilled milk. Anyways, I do not need you to inform me about the paper achievements of one of the most overrated football players to play in Suburban One. You probably would not have sounded like such an idiot had you actually have seen him play. Eventually it will be seen what a 6'7 310+ high school lineman that fails to get a formidable 1A offer looks like. That is if he plays...

Also, the East-West game is also loaded with kids that go D-2/3. You should learn to inform yourself about the information BEFORE you present it. That means all of it.
