Not long after picking up a commitment from Suffield Academy offensive tackle Michael Yerardi last Thursday, UMass secured a verbal from another East coast lineman. Jack Driscoll, a 6-foot-5, 250-pound, offensive tackle from Daniel Hand High School in Madison,Connecticut now joins Yerardi, Joe Parsons, and defensive prospects Diasjohn Robinson, and Lee Moses as current class of 2015 recruits to give Mark Whipple, and the UMass coaching staff a verbal pledge, per Bob McGovern of the Maroon Musket.
When you hear of a 250-pound offensive tackle, the first thought you might have is "that is kind of small for a Division I lineman", but don't fret Minutemen fans, Driscoll, who reportedly benches 275 pounds, and squats 375, has the frame to bulk up once he reaches campus, and has the opportunity to work with the strength and conditioning staff at UMass over the next few years.
Displaying pretty solid footwork, and burst off the ball, If things don't work out at tackle for Jack, he should have no problem making the transition over to guard or even the defensive line, where he occasionally lines up on the high school level.
The Minutemen weren't the only team to offer the senior during the recruiting process. Army, Brown, Holy Cross, and New Hampshire were also after Driscoll before he decided on UMass last week.
