UCF gets 2012 commitment

Donnie Jones picked up his first 2012 verbal commitment. Matt Williams is now a Knight.

Donnie Jones and his staff at UCF picked up a 2012 verbal commitment Wednesday evening.

Matt  Williams, of Orlando (Fla.) Jones, gave Central Florida the nod. Williams confirmed the news to Scout.com.

"I picked it because it was close to home, my parents and the community get to see me play and the fact that coach Jones is a christian," Williams said. "My parents are real big on that."

Williams had a number of suitors, including Clemson, Wake Forest, Tulsa, USF, Miami, Murray State and Georgia.

Williams is UCF's first commitment in the 2012 recruiting class. He averaged 15.3 points, 10.6 rebounds and three assists per outing.
