Partial quote from a 10/18/2016 article by Scout.com:
"Gophers are off to a good start with already one commitment from Georgia's Javan Hawes, who does have some position flexibility to potentially be a defensive back, but he's committed right now as a receiver and that's where I anticipate him starting his Gopher career."
No indication so far of any renewed interest between Hines and the Minutemen, but he's now available and he fits UMass needs on both sides of the ball.
