UMass Football News--August 8th, 2018

Josh Walfish reports the UMass defense is settled in with the second year of Ed Pinkham. (fixed link)

Whatever happens with the Minutemen defense this fall, the secondary should be a strong point. The two starting corners Moses and Rodgers are two of the top players in the group of five. Tyler Hayes started every game in 2017. The Safety position is deep with UConn transfer Brice McAlliser, Tryis Lebeau and Bakhari Goodson. Freshman Safety Joseph Norwood was the top-rated recruit in the 2018 incoming class.

The UMass Twitter feed has some video featuring the defensive backs.

Fixed link. For some reason, the "copy link" feature has been giving me problems lately. It doesn't flush out the previous viewed page. Since I do a lot of links, I try to check each time, but I've been missing some.
