I don't think transfers were included back then. But maybe JuCo were? Because Andrew Ford is on the 2016 list.
I'll pretend I'm Rainman and predict this year: Tulane (competitive), Toledo (competitive), Stony Brook (WIN), Temple (possible WIN), EMU, Liberty, Buffalo (hope no blowouts, maybe 1 or 2); NMSU, UConn, Ark State (all possible WINs), A&M and Army (let's not go there).

I don’t think Toledo will be competitive. Buffalo might

Didn’t read. Did Mike explain the thought process?

Anyone know who recruits for us Germany.
I've been with Canadian friends t past week...one played OL for the Edmonton Eskimos and won 5 Grey Cups... asked me about some former UM player recruiting in Germany who directed some time ago a QB from Germany to U.S. who considered UM, maybe when 1AA, but kid went to IA maybe Louisiana U.
I have no idea who.
I mentioned Brandon London, but they said no, maybe someone who played for Winnepeg after UM.

^Did a web search.
Looks like it must be Brandon Collier.

It's for 2023 but it's relevant. However, it would be an upset if we got him considering his P5 offers. If he chooses Akron I'll lose my mind. :shock:

Am I missing something? I don't see UMass listed there:
Michigan, Oregon, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, UConn, Boston College, Arizona and Akron.

EDIT: Ok, I see we have an offer out on the 24/7 site. https://247sports.com/Recruitment/Willi ... Interests/

^ Nutter corrected his tweet later to include Kentucky, Rutgers and UMass. Adding 2 more P5 schools doesn't help.

Not sure how much of a connection with Whip there is.. also the problem with the University of Nebraska is its in Lincoln Nebraska.. not saying hes coming to UMass but there are a lot better schools/locations on his list. He doesn't really fit the mold of a Whip QB either.

Apparently Whip offered him at a young age while here at UMass, then again while at Pitt and now Nebraska... he's been in on the kid for awhile.

Didnt realize he offered him that early.. rest of my points still stand though... the location isnt great and i dont think Whips offense is a fit..
