Tukes is the latest Knight

The Knights received their 18th commit of the 2010 class from a player that's been high on UCF for some time now. Justin Tukes is a big tight end/ defensive end from Worth County H.S. (Ga.) and he's also the latest Knight.

Justin Tukes visited UCF earlier this summer and was blown away by the experience. At the time, he told InsideKnights.com that he "would love" a UCF offer and that if a scholarship came his way that he would consider committing right on the spot.

Flash forward three months later and Tukes made his second visit to Orlando for the UCF-Miami game. Apparently that experience was equally impressive and he did land an offer because he committed less than a week after his visit.

The 6'5", 220 lb. end also had offers from UAB and Georgia State, and there is a lot of excitement surrounding him in regards to his potential.

Stay tuned for our follow up interview.
