Mike Traini of "Fight Massachusetts" has a post on Loane with some quotes by him with his reasons for becoming involved with the Minutemen program.
Loane probably didn't get the attention he deserved because of his size. Some recruiting services had him as shorter than six feet. However, a player's height does not measure the size of his motor. James Ihedigbo walked on to UMass and became an All-American and is still playing in the NFL.
Hopefully, Loane will be on the field making tackles against SEC teams and proving wrong all the Texas schools who didn't recruit him.
