Recruit Update ▲ UMass Recruiting Reset

Now that Coach Carvel and his staff have indicated that they’re done assembling their first recruiting class and we know about the current players who will not be returning next year, it’s time to take a fresh look at where the program is from a recruiting standpoint.  Recruiting is a fluid situation even in normal situations, so it’s been a challenge to try to keep up with all the new names that have recently committed while following which previous recruits are still committed to the school.  I believe all my information is up to date.  So first up, let’s take a look at the future Minutemen due in Amherst this fall.

Recruit Update ▲ Nachtigall Enjoying The New Year With 5 Goals Scored During 2016

Because of the weird schedule lately I haven’t had a chance to post a recruit update since 12/22.  At that time UMass recruits Shane Bear and Cale Makar had just won gold for Canada-West at the World Junior A Championships.  In the last few days the Brooks Bandits posted this really interesting video with Bear and Makar about their experience at the international competition.  Bear seems like a very mature and poised person from the interview.  It’s also interesting to hear him talk about what he learned from last year when he tried out but didn’t make the cut and how he learned from it.
