The Knights added two commits late Friday night and there's a chance another one might be on the way…
One Man's Opinion: Expect Big-Name Recruits
As of now, UCF's class consists of some nice players, especially amongst the offensive line, where the team has received verbals from five physically impressive specimens. Players like Perry Meiklejohn (6'3", 320 lbs.) and Tony Jacobs (6'7", 310 lbs.) will give UCF the size to matchup with anyone in the nation. You can argue that with ever-expanding offer lists, guys like Tommy Sanders, Woodley Cadet and Andrew Rice are all vastly underrated.
Yes, the coaching staff has done a tremendous job locking down recruits early on and with the summer almost over, you probably won't see too many more commits until mid-season or closer to national signing day. With that being said, it's best to be patient Knight fans, because I have a feeling that the best is yet to come.
The 2010 class is already looking to be a stellar one, but the Knights have put themselves to land some elite prospects. With roughly five scholarships remaining, UCF will be able to pick-and-choose the remaining commits in this class.
Because the team has already addressed the offensive line, quarterback and the secondary to a nice extent, it will presumably look for some defensive line help, but for the most part, the Knights will exert their power the rest of this recruiting season, aiming at only the bluest of the blue chippers.
One would then have to believe that elite talents such as defensive end Corey Lemonier, receiver Allen Hurns and defensive end/tight end Quenton Brown are on the teams radar. Four-star linebacker Christian Jones, was at UCF's practice recently and is another player that the Knights have their sights set on. Danny Foose, Marcus Shaw and Michaelee Harris are some other names to follow.
Nothing is guaranteed, as closing the deal on these type of players is difficult for most schools, but I think Knights will be in the mix for all the aforementioned players and could snag some of them. Obviously, things can change from now until February, as needs and scholarships available will fluctuate. The general concept you should have though is this; the next commits you see should be big-time players, which is only a sign where UCF is heading as a program.
