Juwann Bushell-Beatty, a huge 2014 offensive lineman from New Jersey, has picked up an offer from UMass.
The news comes from Rivals’ Shawn Brown, who pretty much has the scoop on New Jersey recruiting.
Bushnell-Beatty is already 6’7 and 310 pounds. 247 Sports has Michigan, Penn State and Rutgers showing interest, but UMass is his first and only to offer. NJ.com’s Todderick Hunt, who covers Rutgers’ football and recruiting, wrote that Bushell-Beatty might be the ”best garden state offensive lineman“ from the 2014 class. He also reported that Pitt and Ohio State are interested.

It sounds like UMass is making its rounds down in Jersey. Brown also tweeted that UMass (and Old Dominion) coaches were in the area scoping out recruits.
Dillon Tighe, a 2013 wide receiver out of Arundel High School in Maryland, has been offered a preferred walk-on spot by UMass.
The news comes from Matt Alkire, via Twitter:
247 Sports has a number of schools showing interest, including Boston College, but no offers.

UMass also extended offers to two 2014 athletes from Fort Pierce, Fla.
According to ESPN’s Wells Dusenbury, the Minutemen have offered linebacker Sharieff Rhaheed and defensive end Rashawn Shaw. Dusenbury broke the news about both offers on Twitter:
Rhaheed is 6’4 and 215 pounds, and is already fielding interest from an impressive array of schools, according to Rivals. Shaw is already considered a four-star recruit, and holds offers from all over, including South Carolina and UConn, according to 247 Sports. Rivals has more of the same.
Both come from the same school as Marcus Levy, a high-level 2013 running back that recently decommitted from Cincinnati and committed to Bowling Green.
