UMass Football Picks Up 2014 Defensive End Da'Sean Downey

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Charley Molnar has been on a roll picking up defensive linemen in this class and his latest is from Connecticut by way of New York.

Charley Molnar and the UMass Minutemen may be on a bye week, but that doesn't mean the coaching staff is resting on its laurels. Instead, they picked up a commitment from 2014 defensive end Da'Sean Downey from The Caterbury School in Connecticut.

The news was first reported by Bob McGovern of 247sports' Maroon Musket.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound end originally hails from New York where he played at Woodlands High School. He has spent the last year at Canterbury preparing for college and told McGovern he drawn interest from Boston College, UConn, Duke, Old Dominion and Penn State.

Downey is the 16th player in the class to commit to Molnar and the fifth defensive end. With the departures of Brandon Potvin and Justin Anderson coming at the end of the season, Molnar is clearly looking to restock a position that has actually been something of a strength over the last few games.
