Dan Malone of the Springfield Republican has incoming tight ends Jean Sifrin and Jon Denton, both junior college transfers, as being tied as No. 15 on his top 25 players to watch list for UMass football this season. Sifrin seems to be a strong receiving tight end, while Denton looks to be more of a point-of-attack blocker with good hands in the pass game. The combo combined with UMass' returning corps of tight ends will give the Minutemen several options in replacing Rob Blanchflower who was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers this past May.
