 +Pre-season report from Head Coach [[kellogg_derek|Derek Kellogg]]: "We are thrilled to have Maxie joining the UMass basketball family. Maxie is a player we have known for a long time," said Kellogg, who brought in what is widely-regarded as the top freshman class in the Atlantic 10 this season. "He is another very long and athletic player with great upside. He have watched him grow as a person and a player for the last couple of years and I know the UMass fans will be excited to get to know him on and off the court. We are looking forward to him having a great senior year at Lee Academy and then coming to UMass. He has the length and athleticism that is necessary for the type of players we want to coach here at UMass."​
 +  *Did not play in any games during the season, took a redshirt, retaining four years of eligibility.

 +Esho played at Henry Wise High School in Upper Marlboro, Md. where he averaged 14 points and seven rebounds per game before moving to Lee Academy. He was a high school teammate of Daryl Traynham, a fellow freshman.Esho was given a 90 grade by ESPNU recruiting with the following analysis: "Esho has a great basketball frame equipped with incredible length, broad shoulders and big hands. He has to get significantly stronger, which will help him inside, but Esho has a ton of upside and potential. "He played his AAU basketball with DC Assault, the same team UMass' swingman Javorn Farrell played for. In playing with DC Assault, run by Curtis Malone, Esho has been a part of one of the top AAU programs in the nation. He averaged 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds along with two blocks per game in AAU. He played alongside Duke signees Josh Hairston and Tyler Thornton, Notre Dame signee Eric Atkins and Richmond newcomer Cedrick Lindsay. Coach Zach Suber has been an integral part of Esho's life and worked with him as a mentor while he played with DC Assault. Esho was named to numerous All-Tournament Teams during his AAU career as well as being named to MVP of the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions at Chapel Hill, N.C., in 2008. Over the last four years, Esho has been part of more than 120 wins on the AAU circuit. In 2009, he helped his squad capture the adidas Take 5 championship and the Teak Breakdown Tournament title, while also making the final four at the adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas after winning the crown in 2008. In addition to winning the adidas Super 64 title in '08, DC Assault also captured crowns at the Pittsburgh Jam Fest, the Bob Gibbons Memorial Day Tournament in Raleigh, N.C., the Harley Davidson Tournament in Morgantown, W.
