Monday--March 31st, 2014

The UMass website has a spring camp video featuring new DC Tom Messella. It has comments from a number of players on the change to a 3-4 defense. Messalla praises Stanley Andre, Kessan Messiah and corners Randall Jette and Trey-Dudley Giles.

Coach Whipple's Twitter feed talks about the first team scrimmage this weekend as well as recruits visiting for Junior Day.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dan Malone has a feature on the return of Marken Michel. Interesting, some of the UMass players kept in touch with Michel while he was away and Coach Whipple knew him from his Miami days.

Marken's 31-260 stats would have put him 3rd last year in receiving totals.

Malone's article has Coach Whipple praising Marken's speed along with Penn State transfer Alex Kenney.

The Minutemen could certainly use more deep threats. Last year TE Rob Blanchflower had the team's only reception over 50 yards.

The UMass Daily Collegian reports on UMass QB A.J.Doyle's adjusting to the new offensive system.

James Ihedigbo is already working out with new teammate Glover Quinn.
