The University of Massachusetts started the effort to increase its presence in Detroit this weekend. Class of 2014 guard, Edmond Sumner, received a verbal offer. Sumber, who plays his AAU ball for The Family (the former home of new UMass assistant Marlon Williamson), is a highly touted prospect. Both ESPN and Rivals has given him a 4-star rating.
It’s very early in the game, in regards to these 2014 kids. Many more offers will come Sumner’s way. However, hopefully, Amherst (a.k.a. Detroit-east) and coach Williamson will be an enticing place for Sumner to call home when he takes the next step. Additionally, for a point guard that likes to run and gun, UMass is the place to be.
