Saturday--July 12th, 2014

Dan Malone continues his Top-25 UMass players for 2014 with a post on Marken Michel.

Michel's UMass bio.

Michel went 6-6 GP-GS 28-229 8.2 AVE 0 TD 35 LONG 18.7 AVE/G in 2012.

As Dan says, the Minutemen offensive needs all the playmakers it can get. 229 yards would have placed him third in total receiving in 2013 if he had been playing. UMass was 12th in the MAC in pass offense last year and 111th out of 123 teams.
