Shane Huber, a 6’3, 230-pound linebacker from New Jersey that we’ve talked about before, is visiting UMass on Friday.
The news comes from a few sources, but it looks like Chris Smith from Southern Prep Stars broke the news early this morning on Twitter:
Matt Alkire, from XOSports, caught up with Huber later in the day and spoke to the 2013 recruit about his upcoming visit. Huber had a lot of good things to say about the UMass staff, but this one goes on the fridge:
I talked to Coach Elmassian for two hours about football and he was awesome. They’re not only great coaches there, but great men at UMASS.
Not all news is good news for UMass recruiting this week. According to Alkire, Old Dominion received a verbal commitment form T.J. Armstrong, an outside linebacker from Pittsburgh. UMass offered Armstrong in late May.
I’ve got to say, Old Dominion has been doing a damn good job on the recruiting trail this offseason. The Monarchs already have five commitments, and it looks like head coach Bobby Wilder is selling the newest C-USA member well.
