2013 Recruiting Update: News and Notes

(2013 Recruit Jake Kennedy/

Jake Kennedy, a huge offensive lineman from the Granite State,  has been nominated to play in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, according to the New Hampshire Football Report.

UMass extended an offer to Kennedy last month.

Kennedy is 6-foot-4 and 280-pounds. UMass made the offer during Junior Day at Gillette.

Here is his list of awards:

  • 2011 Div III All-State
  • 2011 Nashua Telegraph All-Area First Team
  • 2011 Finalist Nashua Telegraph All-Area Player of the Year
  • 2011 Outstanding Junior Team Award
  • 2011 Sportsmanship Award
  • 2010 Div III All-State
  • 2010 Oustanding Sophomore Varsity Football

Here is his highlight video. I know he plays against lesser competition, but I still love the way he just nonchalantly tosses defensive linemen to the turf.

Tyrell Judson, an athlete we mentioned last week, tweeted that he will be visiting UMass on June 10. That is the day after the last UMass Football Day Camp in Amherst.

Here is his tweet:!/Inner_animal04/status/190267764315922432

Ryan Conte, a lineman from Somerville High School, tweeted that he was contacted by Brown University and may pay the school a visit soon.

Here is his tweet.

Conte has shown a great deal of interest in UMass during the recruiting process and came to Gillette for Junior Day.

Maurice Hurst Jr., a monster recruit from Xaverian that we have mentioned time and time again, is going on a ridiculous recruiting trip where he will visit: Penn State, Virginia, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Michigan and Michigan State.

Here is his initial tweet, and here is his tweet about heading to East Lansing.

Honestly, I know UMass isn’t really in the running for this kid anymore, but now I’m just interested in where he ends up.
