Wednesday is early signing day for College Football. UCF enters the Big 12 in 2023 or 2024 so recruiting needed to get better. Gus Malzhan has been beating down doors and also the transfer portal favors UCF with filling holes. Glad to read articles like this on UCF recruiting. It's a short article and the title is definitely click bait, so don't click on it if not interested. Just know that UCF is still on an upward trajectory and you guys are welcome to jump on the bandwagon at any time. Support your local team and big time college football in our backyard. I hope we do get some great recruits tomorrow and "The Ink Dries" on the commits along with some surprises. Go Knights.

https://247sports.com/Article/...signing-day-178288931/

"Gus Malzahn's first full recruiting class at UCF will go down as the best ever for the Knights in the 247Sports era. UCF, which has never finished higher than 55th in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings, enters the Early Signing Period holding the nation's No. 39 class and has a chance to rise a few more spots on Wednesday if the Knights are able to secure a signature from Tampa (Fla.) Berkley Prep Top247 running back Xavier Townsend."

Gators will more than likely improve once Napier gets established. The tranfser portal has been interesting. UCF lost some good players but picked some up.

Yesterday, it was announce that some Key players are returning. Practice began as 2022 school year starts this week.

Isaiah Bowser is returning at Rb. He is an NFL back. Surprised he is returning he said in a presser he need one more term to complete his Masters Degree.

Sam Jackson, 5 year Right Tackle. NFL was calling. He is now returning. Another surprise.

Also, Key defense players and our NFL long snapper who came in 2nd in the long snapper award is coming back.

Then, it was announced a Qb from Ole Miss is transferring to UCF.

UCF has a lot of returning players. 2022 should be a good year for us. (knock on wood).

#UCF has landed a commitment from Virginia offensive tackle Grad transfer Ryan Swoboda. Ryan is coming home being from Clermont, FL. He only has 1 year of eligibility. Also Ryan is a BIG Man at 6-foot-10, 325-pound??

AT VIRGINIA
2021 - Started 11 of UVA's 12 games at right tackle ... blocked on offensive line that helped Virginia averaged 515.8 yards of total offense, the third-most of any FBS program

The BOOM's keep stacking up as Gus Malzhan lands another SEC transfer for the Knights. Kemore Gamble, who will come to UCF as a sixth-year senior, was the starting tight end for the Gators last season. He is the ninth SEC transfer Gus has landed since taking the job at UCF.

Gamble is coming off of a season where he caught 31 passes for 414 yards with 4 touchdowns. The 6'4" 243 pound bruiser played 656 offensive snaps in 2021, which was fifth most for any offensive Gator player. In total, he played 1,190 snaps over five seasons in Gainesville.

... UCF 2022 and beyond...Watch out! Get your season tix now (ha ha, already sold out)...Big 12 conf in 2023. Both Texas and Oklahoma are stuck until 2025 in the Big 12 so look for them in Orlando for regular season games.


Auburn transfer DT Lee Hunter is a Knight
Malzahn lands another former Auburn Tiger from the transfer portal

The 6'4" 321 pound defensive tackle was a four-star recruit, ranked top-100 in the nation, and top-10 in the state of Alabama. He was also ranked the #12 defensive lineman in the country. He'll come to UCF with a full four years of eligibility remaining.

Miami
Noon ET, ACC Network and the ESPN App

How will the excitement surrounding Mario Cristobal translate into what we see in the spring game?

There is a new vibe surrounding the Miami football program now that Cristobal has taken over. Miami will play its spring game at the home of MLS club Inter Miami CF because Hard Rock Stadium is unavailable -- and the Hurricanes announced earlier in the week the game is sold out. That is just one small indication of how much the fans in South Florida are anticipating what Cristobal and his staff are going to bring to the table. But to answer the age-old question about when Miami will return to competing for championships, the Hurricanes have to win games more consistently than they have over the past two decades. With quarterback Tyler Van Dyke returning to lead the offense, expectations are high, but there is work to be done. Two major areas to keep an eye on Saturday are receiver and defensive line, where Miami needs to find standouts and build depth. Cristobal believes the offensive line might be the most improved part of the team, so that bears watching as well. -- Adelson

& got my black & gold goggles on tight!

UCF spring game showed some great potential. UCF weak spot this year will be linebackers, but every other position is two deep at least.

The Qb transfer from Ole Miss Plumlee threw for 4 tds and is a running qb. UCF has a Qb competition going with last year's Mikey Keene and Plumlee.

Hope I didn't curse my team.

Receiver Jaylon Robinson says he will transfer from UCF

https://sports.yahoo.com/ucf-w...184000506.html?src=rss

This spring, Robinson looked like his former self, catching 3 passes for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns in Saturday's spring game.

Despite his recovery, Robinson has decided to move on from the Knights.

"I would like to give a big thanks to coach Gus, coach Heard and coach [Chip] Lindsey and the rest of the UCF coaching staff for coming in and teaching me how to be a better player and leader," Robinson said.

The move means the Knights will rely on senior Ryan O'Keefe to take on an even larger role this season.

O'Keefe stepped up after Robinson got hurt and led the team with 84 receptions, which ranks fifth in a single season in UCF history. He totaled a team-high 812 receiving yards and was second with 7 touchdown catches.

In addition to O'Keefe, UCF returns redshirt junior Jaylon Griffin, senior Amari Johnson, redshirt junior Dionte Marks and redshirt sophomore Jordan Johnson among others.

The Knights also added Kobe Hudson from the transfer portal ahead of the spring. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound receiver led Auburn with 44 catches for 580 yards. His 4 receiving touchdowns also tied for the team-high.

In addition, the Knights will be joined this summer by two talented freshman receivers in Gainesville Buchholz's Quan Lee and Tampa Berkeley Prep's Xavier Townsend - both 4-star recruits, according to 247Sports.

UCF recruiting for 2023 and Big 12 conference in either 2023 or 2024.


Cardinal Gibbons QB Dylan Rizk commits to UCF football

https://news.yahoo.com/cardina...an-rizk-152400692.html

The momentum on the recruiting trail for UCF coach Gus Malzahn hasn't slowed down since the Knights wrapped spring camp last Saturday.

Cardinal Gibbons (Fort Lauderdale) quarterback Dylan Rizk announced his verbal commitment to UCF on social media Thursday becoming the fourth high school prospect to pledge to the Knights this week alone.

Rizk follows a Wednesday announcement from East Forsyth (N.C.) tight end Jayvontay Conner and joins four-star edge rusher Isaiah Nixon - who committed midway through the spring game - and Brunswick (Ga.) offensive tackle Jamal Meriweather - who announced his decision on Sunday.

Rizk is the 6th overall verbal commitment for UCF in this recruiting cycle.

In addition to the names above, Rizk joins Apopka three-star edge rusher Kaven Call - who committed on Christmas - and 3-star linebacker Troy Ford - who announced his verbal pledge in March - as members of UCF's 2023 recruiting class.

As a junior, Rizk served as the starting quarterback for a Cardinal Gibbons team that finished 11-2 and won the Florida 4A state title over Cocoa.

During the state championship season, he threw almost 2,000 yards and 17 touchdowns while completing 67% of his passes. On the ground, Rizk ran for 456 yards and 8 more scores on the ground averaging 7.9 yards per rush.

Rizk is ranked as the No. 54 overall quarterback in the country for the 2023 recruiting class, according to 247Sports.

With Rizk in the mix, UCF's 2023 recruiting class sits at No. 26 in the country according to 247Sports.

also, coincidently the Cocoa Qb from last year is a UCF Walk on this year. He has potential as well for Big 12 action. We will see.

We weren't in the preseason top 25 back in 2017 either. 2nd year for Gus Malzhan, with strong transfers coming in and recruiting with a ton of returnees...Just wait...Keep posting that comment I made. I stand by it.

Well UCF does still enjoy the advantage of still playing in a conference that is populated with weak football teams.

I bet ya a Benjaman that they do not go undefeated through the reg season and any conference championships that they might play.

ESPN has the gators in top 25 preseason poll. Coming off a 6-7 season where they lost to UCF in the bowl game and have a new coach.

UCF returns a lot of players and have a very good coach yet isn't in it. Respectfully I would expect that since UCF wasn't that good last year with all the injuries. But, the Gators are all of a sudden going to be good. Napier that good of a coach?

Gators open the season with preseason #15 Utah in da swamp. Interesting match up.

Prescient comment there around 7:00 about how the move to a P5 conference opens the door to recruiting the best players in the country, players who wouldn't even talk to a non-P5 school.

It shows how the current structure (playoff slots) perpetuates the Old Boys' club. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

The odds of any team going undefeated are very low. Very few teams pull it off. You gonna give me a point spread?

Do you remember this post?

UCF to go undefeated this year. Hard to figure out who and how anyone can beat UCF this year


Are you now attempting to backstroke away from your own solid prediction? I mean, remember 2017 and all.

oh and .... you want me to give you a "point spread" in if or not UCF will have an undefeated season???? WTF? Exactly how in the hell would I do that??

I'm not backstroking on anything. I think we can go undefeated this year and looking at the schedule figuring out who and how anyone can beat UCF this year?

Now, do I want to gamble on it? No. It's a fools bet to do that. You are the one that put gambling in on it, not me. Look at the schedule. All winnable games.

Houston which is probably the top AAC team isn't on the schedule but if UCF runs the table more than likely will see them in Conf champ game.

Cinci should and I hope have a down year with losing Qb/Rb/Oline from last year's Playoff run. Cincy's defense was the best last year and hoping they lost some from players from that team (haven't checked).

Louisville has that very dangerous Qb, but they just barely beat UCF last year in Louisville. WE WANT revenge on them. GaTech, eh, Maybe. SMU may be good. Can always drop a game with NAVY with their crazy strategy, they beat UCF last year. But, overall UCF will be much improved over last year.

Thanks for playing the spur-Central-Floridave-with-gabbing-more-about-UCF-Knights game. You are one of the best at it.

Hey LBLarry, every fan of every team should hope their team wins the National Championship. I'm sorry you pull for a team that does not have that aspirations. For UCF, that is our goal.

Hey CentoDavo ...... the reality is, that for some teams that goal is obtainable and for MOST it simply is not. For various reasons the reality is that both our teams are currently in the not, category.

Cinci made the playoffs last year. Thus, there is hope for UCF. But, first, gotta beat everyone in front of us and of course, have some shake down of the blue bloods. I'm kinda tired of BAMA BAMA BAMA...someone has to knock them off. Gus Malzhan knows how to beat Nick Satan. He has beaten him 3 times. Stars gotta align, but UCF is shooting for the stars!

Speaking of which Texas A&M has reportedly the #1 recruiting class with like 9 5 stars. I'm just guessing at 9. Jimbo Fisher must be paying a lot for all those stars.

That's Jimbo's history. It's not like it was ten years ago. All of these 5 stars are jealous mistresses and the new transfer portal rules make them very entitled. Very few 5 stars will be staying put. I can't imagine a situation like Bama had with two awesome quarterbacks staying there in case the starter gets injured or just screws up a game.

Woot! One more year in the AAC then off to the Big-12. Hopefully Texas and Oklahoma are forced to stay in Big12 until 2025 so we can get them in Orlando.

btw, UCF very first game in their new stadium (2007) was against a highly ranked Texas at #6. UCF just about upset them and it went to the final plays. UCF lost 35-32 to the longhorns. It was a very exciting game.
