They are no longer linked and I believe it is academics related.

I thought I read that the Johnson kid from EL was going to be a walk-on. He signed a LOI, which doesn't make sense for a walk-on.........

UMass moved on. Academic and other concerns. He was never going to qualify, same reason he parted ways with Tennessee.

When he was offered it was as a scholarship player. He's on scholarship.

Johnson seems like a few kids in the class so far, he really wants to be here. I like that. The player I'm most excited about so far is Dennis Osagiede, the DL from Texas. From everything I've read he's high skill, high motor, high character and high academics. The perfect combination.

I am very happy with this class so far and in particular the Nigerian Nightmare - Dennis Osagiede - DT from Ridge Point HS in Missouri City TX - Sounds like a truly outstanding young man and I he will be a great addition to the UMAss football program - Great Job !!

Just saw this tweet from Eziwike. He is our highest rated recruit so I hope he signs tomorrow as indicated. Mike, do you have any further info on him?

Initial indications were that Ezewike wasn't going to sign early, but if he does that would obviously be great. The window is open until 11:59pm tonight, so more players could sign if they choose. It's possible but from what I understand UMass isn't expecting anyone to come in before the window closes.

Just got Justin Lewis a DB from Opelika, AL....listed as a Costello recruit....signs unexpectedly a day after Costello sent out a tweet about guys not being disappointed if the school they are waiting to offer them doesn't and those that did, no longer have scholarships, leaving them out in the cold (colloquially - not physically) Wonder if there are more that Costello was targeting with that tweet?

#UMass' current highest-rated commit @UcheTheSavior has made it official with the #Minutemen. The SoFla DE is a versatile weapon who can play all over the edge and hunt the QB. Big one to have signed up.
