Yahoo Sports asks about the next UMass star… Wonders if it’s Emil Igwenagu
Could tight end Emil Igwenagu be the next NFL star to come from the UMass program?
Just two years removed from his collegiate career at UMass, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is enjoying a stellar start to his NFL career. An injury limited Cruz to just three games and no catches in his rookie season but he rebounded to lead the Giants in catches and receiving touchdowns this past year, including the first touchdown of their Super Bowl win. But the success of Cruz in the NFL, along with that of New England Patriots linebacker James Ihedigbo and New York Jets offensive lineman Vlad Ducasse, means that the Minutemen have formed a small pipeline to the league.
Igwenagu is the next in line to possibly taste that success.
