UCF's Archbishop Carroll Connection
Fellow defensive back Terrance Taylor is considered a versatile prospect who lines up at both safety and running back for the Bulldogs and he too has garnered a lot of interest from UCF, as the Knights are one of 10 teams that have offered him a scholarship. Does Taylor display the same interest in UCF that the Knights show in him?
In an article with Scout.com writer Mike Bakas, Taylor professed his interest in UCF. "I have a top three," he said. "It's UCF, Rutgers, and FIU. I like the way UCF is doing things up there. They're big on discipline and I like that."
Along with Ammos and Taylor, UCF has also extended an offer to Archbishop Carroll receiver, Rodney Smith. While Ammons and Taylor are both very talented players, Smith has caught the eye of elite colleges across the nation, totaling 25 offers to date.
Ranked as the seventh best receiver in the nation, UCF is aggressively pursuing Smith, and while the Knights face the likes of Auburn, Florida State, Tennessee and others for Smith's services, the program seems to be making an impression on him.
In an interview last month with Nole Digest, Smith said that UCF was recruiting him very aggressively and that the relationship he has with Coach Keys (UCF's tight end coach) is amongst the best of any college coach.
Smith stands at an imposing 6'5", 200 lbs, and he runs a 4.5 40-yard dash. Smith has a reputation as a big play receiver, grabbing 25 catches for just under 500 yards last season. He also had three interceptions.
Having already landed Ammons, the Knights are a third of the way there to hauling in the Archbishop Carroll trio. The Knights seem to be Taylor's leader as of now, and UCF also seems to be in the mix for Smith. For the now the Knights are more than content with Ammons, but they would love to add Taylor and Smith to their 2009 recruiting class.
