UCF Football Announces Recruiting Class

On National Signing Day, the UCF football team received 19 inked letters of intent today that will join the Knights for its first season in the Big East.

Three members of the signing class are already enrolled. Quarterbacks Pete DiNovo and Justin Holman as well as defensive back D.J. Killings.
