Recruiting 2016--Alay, Morrison and Tucker

UMass has added a trio of preferred walk-ons to their 2016 roster.

ESPN Boston has an article on the trio's joining UMass.

I've blogged about 6-0 220 pound kicker Randy Alay a couple of times before.

In my previous blog posts I don't think I linked to this November 2015 article featuring Alay.

Quote from the article:

I haven’t seen any stronger a leg in high school in the state,” said former Bucknell University kicker Todd Krutchkoff, who has been Alay’s kicking coach the past four years. “He is the first kicker I’ve ever tutored and he really set the bar high. I can’t imagine there are many kickers in the state that can kick the ball out of the back of the end zone like him.

“I haven’t seen another kicker better in my four years coaching in Massachusetts.”

"In his career, Morrison caught 34 passes for 491 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was a standout defensively and was All-State at defensive end for ESPNBoston.com. He had 113 tackles and 11 sacks at defensive end."
