Gaithersburg (MD) Quince Orchard DE Jason Ankrah chatted with GoBlueWolverine Sunday evening about…
Knights Invade Northeast
When InsideKnights.com last talked to Travis Hawkins, the sixth-ranked cornerback in the nation, he was undecided on what school would round out his top five list and where he would take his last official visit. However in just a few weeks, UCF has received that last coveted spot.
"My top five are Maryland, Penn State, Michigan, Oregon, and UCF."
Hawkins has built up a good relationship with UCF despite them joining the race late.
"Coach Godsey is coming up to see me tomorrow, that will be my first chance to meet him."
Although it appears that if the Knights were to land Hawkins, he would not be the only talented player from Quince Orchard they would receive, as teammate Jason Ankrah and Hawkins intend on going to the same school. Both of them have Penn State, Michigan, and Maryland in their top five, but UCF is also a possibility.
"I haven't had a chance to talk to them yet, they called the other day though, Travis and I will be going down there for an official soon, he likes them a lot," said Ankrah.
Ankrah is rated as the 25th best end in the nation by Scout.com and according to Hawkins, the two are a packaged deal. He credits his quickness off the ball, and ability to read and react for his ability to make plays. Ankrah continues to work hard to gain more knowledge of the game and would be a great asset to the Knights as he has great ability to get up field and make plays in the backfield.
Both players said that they will likely head to UCF for the ECU game on November 2nd for an official visit.
Both players are off to a great start though as they have helped lead their team to a 6-0 start on their path to repeat as state champs. They have a tough game this week at an undefeated (6-0) Sherwood team.
"This is a game I've been looking forward to and I can't wait to play it," said Hawkins, who could put UCF even higher up on his list if things go well with his visit from Coach Godsey.
