Senior Dalvin Battle (Fort Myers, Fla.) took a visit to Amherst, Mass. over the weekend and signed with the Minutemen on Monday, according to the News-Press.

Battle was committed to Bethune-Cookman heading into signing day but did not ink with the Wildcats. He was also recruited by Florida Atlantic. UMass jumped into the mix for Battle late in the process.

He rushed for 1,006 yards and 19 touchdowns and caught 17 passes for 294 yards and two more scores as a senior. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound prospect rushed for 2,713 yards and 37 touchdowns in his high school career.
