Cadet Enjoyed Saturday's Atmosphere

Woodley Cadet was one of UCF's first commits of the 2010 class and the Knights were thrilled to see him on campus for the Miami game last week. Inside, Cadet talks about how the game was and what's the latest with his recruitment.

There was an abundance of talent in the stands at UCF's last home game versus Miami. The Knights had almost all of their current 17 commits in attendance and one of those players was Seminole Ridge H.S. (Fla.) star, Woodley Cadet.

"I went there on Saturday," Cadet told InsideKnights.com. "It was a real good atmosphere. Hopefully I can get there again soon."

Although the Knights lost, the safety was impressed with what he saw from UCF's defense.

"The defense wasn't bad, they had a good performance. They did alright against a real good team."

What stuck out to Cadet was that several true freshmen got the starting nod for the Knights. Josh Robinson and Kemal Ishmael started at cornerback and free safety, respectively, and that's something that caught Cadet's eye.

"I definitely want the chance to play early, it's good to see that they'll play young guys."

Cadet still hears from UCF's staff regularly and appears to be a strong commit. Wake Forest offered him shortly after he gave UCF his pledge and Cadet says that they are still recruiting him, although not too intently.

"They'll contact me just by email and mail."

As of now, Cadet isn't hearing too much from other programs but that might change as Cadet and his teammates continue to be productive on the field.

"The season isn't bad so far, we're 4-2 overall and we are 1-0 in our district. I'm doing good, making plays and just trying to help out."

This week the UCF commit will face a big task as he will face Palm Beach Atlantic, the primary rival in Seminole Ridge's district.

"That's probably going to be the hardest team we play in our district. We've watched film on them and they have some pretty big guys, it should be a good game."
