3-Star Prospect Antonio Harris Verbals To UMass

Rivals 3-star linemen Antonio Harris has committed to the Minutemen. Another big offensive linemen is just what the doctor ordered.

“I went up there this weekend and UMass. blew my mind,” Harris told the Washington Post. “Last year they had a rough year in their first year [in the Football Bowl Subdivision.] They need people, and I want to be part of what they’re building. I saw other people committing, and I figured I’d better hurry up.”

According to Philly.com, UMass has offered pro-style quarterback Michael Keir of the class of 2013. Keir is rated as a 2-star prospect by Scout and a 3-star by ESPN.

The only other 1-A program to offer at this point is MAC foe Kent State. However, according to sources, a number of other big name programs have shown some interest.

KAEO: Arthur Williams, Florida S

We’ve got another player we want to keep an eye on this fall. He’s Arthur Williams. Williams is a Florida safety, and has the UMass Minutemen in his top 3. That according to Chris Nee of 24/7 Sports. This is also confirmed by Rivals.

Williams is a 2-star prospect as rated bu both Scout and Rivals. According to these reports, Williams is also high on Florida International and South Alabama. MAC foe Buffalo also offered, but apparently didn’t make Williams’ cut.

Although Amherst is not as close to home as FIU, there will certainly be plenty of Florida guys on the Minutemen roster come fall of 2013. Hopefully Williams keeps that in mind when making his decision.

Pennsylvania FB Daquan Mack Commits To UMass

Last week there were various reports that Daquan Mack wanted to be a Minuteman. Today, it appears, that came to fruition for the class of 2013 fullback. It is being reported that Mack has committed to UMass.

Mack was receiving interest from Uconn, Temple and Villanova, according to Rivals. The highlights you can find on YouTube are impressive. This kid runs hard. I have to believe the UMass fans will love that. However, what’s even more impressive are Daquan’s interviews on YouTube. In those videos, as just a sophomore and junior in high school, he comes off as confident and intelligent.

Good luck to Daquan during his senior year. If he keeps up the hard work and big things await him in Amherst.

KAEO: Justin Williams, Florida DB/WR

Justin Williams has been listed as both a wide receiver and a defensive back at times. However, it appears likely that Williams will play safety at the next level.

Williams was scheduled to visit Amherst on June 17th. We haven’t heard whether that trip happened, and if it did, how it went.

Williams is a 3-star recruit as rated by Rivals and Scout. In May Williams stated that UMass and South Carolina were the leading contenders.
