Emily Kaplan of the Boston Globe has a feature on UMass' three fifth-year transfers in Ricardo Miller, David Osei, and Justin Anderson. The trio joined the Minutemen during the offseason and will make a big impact on the team this season. Last year, UMass also had three transfers in Michael Cox, Hafis Williams and Deion Walker. Cox was drafted following the season by the New York Giants.
[Charley] Molnar is trying to build a culture. It's a culture Miller, Osei, and Anderson are already familiar with.
"The guys on our team right now only have one year of 1-A experience under their belt," Molnar said. "The transfers have four years of experience. They've been there, done that."
They've played meaningful games in big stadiums. They've also all earned degrees.
"The three are leaders," Molnar said. "And add a maturity level to our team as we continue to grow."
