UMass offers Spellman's Rory Donovan
By Brendan Hall
Cardinal Spellman Class of 2014 tight end/free safety Rory Donovan received his first Division 1 scholarship offer this afternoon, from UMass, he confirmed today in a tweet.
"Just walked away with a football scholarship to UMass!" he wrote in a tweet following his participation in UMass' final one-day camp at Gillette Stadium.
The 6-foot-6, 195-pound Donovan is one of Massachusetts' top uncommitted prospects in the 2014 class, and generally projects as either a wide receiver or a flex tight end at the next level. He was a force both ways last season for the 6-5 Cardinals, catching 10 touchdown passes and recording five interceptions. Boston College, Temple, New Hampshire, James Madison and Albany have also expressed varying degrees of interest in Donovan's services.
