A source has confirmed that UMass has offered Springfield Commerce junior Sha'ki Holines, who lines up at tight end, linebacker and defensive end.
The 6-foot-3, 265-pound Holines has been an integral two-way force for the Red Raiders, who advanced to the Western Mass. Division 2 Super Bowl last December after going 2-9 in 2010. Last season, he registered 132 tackles, including six sacks, and recovered four fumbles. As a tight end offensively, he caught 22 passes for 232 yards and three scores.
