Several news sources report Jordan Fredericks, a 5-10 210 pound RB who previously played for Syracuse, has transferred to UMass.

Mike Traini of "Fight Massachusetts" has a post on Fredericks.

Matty Vautour has a report on the transfer.

A Syracuse fan site on SB Nation talks about Fredericks moving to the Minutemen. has a story on Fredericks' transfer to UMass.

NBC Sports has a post on Fredericks landing in Amherst.

Fredericks' Orange bio.

Fredericks is a nice addition to the Minutemen team. He's the 2014 New York HS Gatorade Player-of-the-Year. Fredericks averaged over 5 yards a carry during his career in Syracuse. Hopefully, he'll be as successful at UMass as Penn State transfer Adam Breneman.

This is what UMass needs to do to succeed in talent-sparse New England. The Minutemen needs to exploit all the recruiting streams to build the talent level in Amherst.

Good catch by the UMass coaching staff. Go UMass!

Skinner would be a major upgrade even if not my first choice.
