There is a dearth of football news on the wires this morning, so let's look at recruiting.
In February of 2011, UMass announced 24 recruits. Four of the 24 Derek Beck, John McGrath, Jamal Wilson and Ryan Campbell, ultimately did not appear on the 2011 roster.
Five of the surviving rectuits were defensive players: Iric Harris DB, Randell Jette DB, Quayshun Smith DB, Greg Hilliard LB, and Kyle Morgan DL.
There were fourteen offensive players and a kicker.
Right now ESPN reports we have three commits all on offense.
ESPN lists the following totals for the MAC East
Ohio (11-4) commits: 11 players, one three star, 6 two star
Temple (10-4) commits: 30 players, 4 three star, 13 two stars, 2 one stars
Kent State (5-7) commits: 16 players, 4 three star, 7 two stars, 1 one star
Bowling Green (5-7) commits: 15 players, 6 three stars, 3 two stars, 1 one star
Miami of Ohio (4-8) commits: 16 players, 3 three stars, 9 two stars.
Buffalo (3-9) commits: 13 players, 2 three stars, 10 two stars, 1 one star
Akron (1-11 and currently no HC) commits: 6 players, 1 three star, 1 two star.
Coach Molnar has some work to do. Eventually, UMass is going to need some defensive players.
