UMass adds seven recruits for the Spring Roster. UMass website article here. The UMass website has complete bios for the players.

Matty V. also has a story about changes in the UMass roster here. (behind pay wall).

Joining UMass will be three scholarship OL and four walk-ons. I've blogged about some of them before.

In other news, Matty V reports (see link above) that Kellen Pagel will probably not return to football because of his concussion syndrome. He may play baseball for the Minutemen. Coach Molnar also has offered to have him join the UMass football staff as a student assistant.

Ryan Carter will graduate and forego his senior season with UMass.

In addition, as already been reported, several UMass players will seek to transfer: Ryan Delaire, John Wallace, Greg Hilliard, Brian Dowling and Jamar Smith.

Thanks for the updates. It's too bad about Kellen Pagel, but probably for the best. I for one thought he was an exceptionally athletic and mobile and could have contributed this year. Best of luck to him--and to those players seeking to transfer.
