Former Wide Receiver Marken Michel Back At UMass

Jared Wickerham

After missing last season, Marken Michel is back at UMass for the 2014 season.

Former UMass wide receiver Marken Michel is back at school, and set to play this year after leaving the program last year. The 5'10", 185 lb receiver played two seasons with the Minutemen and was very productive in that time, especially his sophomore year when he hauled in 28 catches for 229 yards while being limited to only six games due to a shoulder injury.

Michel brings a much needed threat to an offense that was second to last in the MAC behind only Miami in scoring offense and total offense. He also brings experience and leadership to a team that desperately needs it.

Last season, only Tajae Sharpe had more than 27 catches (61) for the Minutemen. With Sharpe returning, UMass will have two big play receivers on the outside that could be really productive under new head coach Mark Whipple.

Marken's younger brother Sony Michel is the #13 rated player in the 2014 class and is committed to the University of Georgia. The reasons are unknown as to why Michel left the program, although some rumors indicate that some schools, in the process of recruiting Sony, also illegally contacted Marken in order to get some sort of recruit "package deal." Those rumors are unconfirmed.
