Knights Picking and Choosing

With UCF's number of spots available dwindling by the moment, the staff is becoming more selective with each spot remaining. Find out who should be on the UCF radar and who recommended the Knights.

One prospect not yet on UCF's radar is Josh Thomas, a hard hitting safety out of Florida State High in Tallahassee, who has all the tools needed to play at the next level.

Thom has yet to collect an offer but is garnering more interest everyday and it is only a matter of time before that ever elusive first offer comes in.

"No offers yet, but I've been getting a lot of interest from Georgia Southern, UAB, USF, Central Michigan, and a few others but South Florida is probably recruiting me the hardest right now," Thomas told Inside Knights.

So how does this relate to the Knights? Thomas seems to be extremely interested in the program.

"I've had my eye on UCF since a player by the name of Gideon Ajagbe introduced me to them," Thomas said.

Gideon has since committed to UF, but apparently UCF made enough of an impression that he has recommended the campus to others.

Thomas stands at 5'11", 180 and runs a sub 4.5 40, but what impresses most in his game is his bone-jarring hitting ability. He can flat out lay the wood to his opposition as seen in his highlight films.

"There will be more of those to come this season." Thomas vows.

If UCF decided to throw an offer Josh Thomas' way, it could be mutually beneficial to both the Knights and the Thomas family.
