Agnew wasn’t on the spring roster and didn’t participate in the Spring Game.
He had 66 tackles during his time as a Minuteman.
It’s unclear why Agnew decided to transfer, but it is safe to assume that playing time was a factor. Agnew would have likely been behind both Charles Thompson and Kevin Byrne on the depth chart. Meanwhile, the Panthers’ have all sophomores and freshmen at the defensive tackle position, and Agnew will immediately step in as the most experienced member of the group.
Since UMass is officially a FBS school, Agnew can play for Georgia State immediately. The Connecticut native will also be an injection of geographical diversity: The Panthers only have one other player from north of the Mason Dixon, and zero from the Northeast.
