UMass Commit: Jarell Addo

UMass’ “Made in Mass” campaign just scored a major victory. The Minutemen picked up a verbal commitment from Jarell Addo, a three-star safety from Leominster, Mass., according to two sources with knowledge of his recruitment. Addo is the third Bay Stater on UMass’ 2014 list, joining the Dexter School’s Dan DiNicola and Dean College’s Jason Sylva.

UMass Commit: Dimitri Angelas

Hours after picking up its first quarterback of the 2014 class, the UMass football team grabbed a verbal commitment from Dimitri Angelas, an offensive lineman from Michigan, according to two sources with knowledge of his recruitment. Angelas is the first Rust Belt recruit of UMass’ 2014 class and is one of the few MAC-territory recruits the Minutemen have looked into. The 6-foot-5, 308-pound prospect also holds an offer from Old Dominon. Angelas hails from Northville High School in Michigan.
