Recruiting 2015--- Diasjon Robinson verbals to UMass

Tim Farrell image
The Minutemen landed their first verbal for 2015 when Diasjon Robinson committed to UMass yesterday.

Robinson is a 6-2 275 pound DT from New Jersey.

I've blogged about Robinson before.

Dan Malone has the story here.

Robinson's 247Sports page here.

I've linked to this article in my previous blog post, but it features Robinson and has some of his stats from 2013.

UPDATE: Dan Malone starts the 2015 MassLive UMass recruiting database. Quote from the article:

"With the help of his coaching staff, he pieced together a fairly impressive batch of players for 2014 on short notice. Given a whole year, Whipple should be able to put his considerable recruiting connections to work even more successfully."

UPDATE II has an article on recruiting updates and comments on Robinson's verbal to the Minutemen. Partial quote from the article:

Robinson is a talented player along the interior who would likely have fielded more offers if he were an inch or so taller. He put forth a standout performance at Rivals Camp-New Jersey and dominated the point of attack for Lincoln the past two years both as an offensive guard and interior defender.

DT's are the rarest recruits. Looks like UMass has one with a big motor.

That's a great recruit!
But this rumor of Sunbelt football? Wow, does that stink. I almost was tempted to attend a MAC home game if played at McGuirk. That temptation would evaporate if a Sunbelt team. Let's go forward, not backward.

You attitude is why UMASS never gets support, always waiting for the team to be on top, in the right league, playing the right team, blah, blah, blah...How about just supporting UMASS?

I'd love to play Sun Belt conference rather than. MAC. Georgia Southern and Appalachian State every year instead of Buffalo or Toledo. At least we have some legit history with those teams.

I'm all for it.
