Roster Changes


The UMass Athletic Dept has a revised Spring Football Roster up.

Some pleasant surprises here!

  • Kevin Macon is back. He was a highly rated OL recruit who made the traveling squad as a true freshman. He should be mix for a starters position this year.
  • Kumar Davis is listed in the 2008 recruits. Davis had signed a LOI with UMass, but was not listed among the recruits on the February press release. He was a Rivals and Scout.com Two star recruit. His addition makes a strong 2008 recruiting class even stronger.
  • Jared Chivers---A former scout teams player who was invited to join the regular roster in 2007 now joins in '08
  • Spencer Whipple-- Son of former UMass coach Mark Whipple. Adds a second left-handed QB to the UMass roster.
  • Theluxon Pierre--Former UMass LOI recruit spent two years with Dean Junior College. Should make the DL even deeper.
  • Andrew Kervis-- has been moved to TE as reported in several blog comments.
As far as I can see, there were no deletions from the roster list given out at the Spring Game. The addition of Kevin Macon and Kumar Davis adds two highly rated players to the 2008 UMass football squad.

Go UMass!

Corey Eason not listed on roster??

If Macon has a mean side he ahs the potential to be special. I really enjoy watching the OL dominate.

Theluxon Pierre
was 6-4 240 lb TE for Dean College as a sophomore. He is a 6-3 260 lb DL for us! Both weights are probably high.
Seems light to play DT for us. Is he going to RS this year to build up his weight/strength? What position is he expected to play for us?

I heard a while ago that Eason was doing some of the things at umass that got him run out of B.C. I don't expect to see him next year. Thats just my feeling.. Not a word from anyone i know at umass

Yeah, it seems very suspect that Eason was on the roster one day and gone the next. I wonder what's going on. Harrington has gained some thirty pounds.
