UCF Prospect Updates

With already 14 prospects committed to UCF, room for the Knights' 2009 recruiting class is slim. The amount of commits UCF will accept is not certain, but it is assumed that the Knights will heavily attack defensive backs, as their entire starting secondary will be graduating after this season. Come inside InsideKnights.com to see how prospects for the class of 2009 are fairing so far this season.

Josh Robinson and Brian Jackson are two of the best defensive backs UCF has extended an offer to. Both are rated as three-star prospects by Scout.com and both have expressed strong interest in the Knights. Each player is primed for a big year in their final season as high school players, but one has gotten off to a hot start, while the other has been slowed down by injuries.

"I sprained my MCL against Northwestern," Robinson told InsideKnights.com. "I'll only be out for about two weeks. I tried to do too much; I shook a defender, then I tried to keep shaking and cutting and my knee just twisted."

Robinson and Plantation H.S suffered their first loss of the season to Miami Northwestern, the defending Florida state champions.

The athlete from south Florida has offers from Florida, Michigan, USF and others, and has UCF as one of his favorites.

Jackson faired a little better last week, although his team also had its first loss as Hoover fell 44-16.

"I did good, I think I played very well, but everyone else didn't. I had literally 20-something tackles and they moved me to starting punt returner," said Jackson.

Both players have UCF amongst their top three teams, with no particular preference. Keep checking InsideKnights.com for more updates on UCF's top prospects.
