Sunday--January 31st, 2016 Mangram, Ally and Davis verbal to UMass

The next to last day of 2015 ended with a bang as UMass received verbals from three recruits.

Martin Mangram tweeted he had verbaled to UMass. He had fourteen other FBS offers including Iowa, Illinois, Wake Forest and more. He's a 247Sports three-star player.

Bilal Ally also Tweeted his commit to the Minutemen. He's also a 247Sports three-star recruit.

Also verbaling to UMass was OL/DL Zuriel Davis.

247Sports currently ranks (without three-star recruit Ally included) 89th in the nation. That's one notch ahead of UConn and third in the MAC.

That's an outstanding result. With Ally added UMass should be in the mid to low 80's, which would be right there with most Group-of-Five teams. If the Minutemen should add another two or three three-star recruits, UMass would be in low-level Power Five ratings.

Either way, it's the best recruiting class in UMass history. The 2016 schedule is insane, but after that brighter days are coming for UMass football.
