Kyle Havens, the JUCO QB from California, moves to UMass on Sunday. Matty Vautour's article also has some quotes about UMass' twin recruits Tom and Tim Brandt.

Back in the '60s we had five Toner brothers play for UMass, but have we ever had twins? Anyone know?

does anyone know for sure how many seasons havens played at CC? i believe that i saw that he only played fball for one year in high school. either way, he may not be as experienced or polished as some of our current QB's on the roster.
