Recruiting 2013--Todd Stafford

Bob Luckey/Greenwich Times image
Rivals.com report that Todd Stafford, a 6-6 240 pd pro-style QB from Greenwich, CT has verbaled to UMass.

Stafford's Rivals page here.

AFAIK, Stafford is our first ever Junior commit.

ESPN shows Stafford on its UMass page.

Scout.com has a story on his verbaling to UMass.

Relevant quote for UMass fans:

"I went up there for the junior day that they had at Gillette Stadium," said Stafford. "That's where they're playing their home games. Both times I've gone up there I've gotten great vibes from the coaching staff and the direction the program is heading."

UMass is Stafford's only offer so far, but BC, Duke and Miami have shown interest.

This is big news indeed. That a recruit, presumably one to be coveted, has verballed this early, is a testament to the vision of the AD and the energy and sanguine nature of Molnar and his coaches. Doesn't hurt to have a home like Gillette which I'm sure was influential.

Frank, any idea who the transfers might be? Any timeframe as to when they will be made known?
