Another big recruit is landed by the UMass coaching staff. Wide receiver Brennon Dingle announced his decision per his Twitter page this afternoon. The Baltimore, Maryland-native is rated as a three-star prospect and ranked as the 117th best wide receiver of the 2016 class, according to 247Sports' composite rankings. Dingle reportedly held offers from Temple, FIU, and Monmouth, before accepting the Minutemen's offer.

Dingle was nice enough to catch up with Hustle Belt and discuss why chose UMass.
"The coaching staff made me feel special. They made me feel like I was wanted and needed on the team. I (also) love that feeling of talking to coach (Darrius)Smith."
The newest UMass commit also talked about some of the goals he has during his time with the Minutemen.
"(I hope to) graduate with the highest grade point average on the team, run the fastest 40 in the school's history, and break the touchdown record for wide receivers."
The Minutemen will look to Dingle with the departure of one of the best wide receivers in the country, Tajae Sharpe, at the end of the season. The 5-foot-10 170 wide receiver can absolutely fly and tracks the ball very exceptionally. The incoming-senior at Archbishop Spalding joins 2016 tight end commit Avien Peah to help provide a bright future for the Minutemen offense.
