    Yes, we lost Avery Thornton (CB who was very raw, probably had upside but film was nothing special), lost TE Nigel Kilby (was 6'7", thats the only good thing about him though, extremely slow, probably wouldve been okay at best).

    Most likely going to lose Katerian Legrone (WR/TE, only 6'3, small for TE, not very fast but played WR some in HS, didnt really see him playing much)

    Word from the rest of recruits is they like the coach and are very happy with him.

    Only people i see leaving beyond this are Madourie (Juco DE) and maybe 1 or 2 of the lower rated ones. All of our top recruits seem locked in and happy with the coaches, especially shannon.

    It's probably because Frost is now calling Nebraska "This Place" and recruits think he's still referring to UCF.

    Looks like we’ll be getting more south FL recruits. We just need a coach that can keep the Georgia pipeline open.

    DW best move was hiring a P5 guy...which is did. Recruits want to know that the HC has P5 background....it adds power to the program. And UCF is virtually a P5 program as it is now.

    Yeah doesn't matter one bit. Was going to be 3 years at least before he saw field.

    May have to offer a few JUCO guys this cycle. I'm sure Heupel was scouting a few being closer to the bigger JUCO programs.

    Would be a great pickup with Jordan Akins graduating and no TE recruits so far for 2018.

    So... what’s the summary? How are we doing overall? Have we lost a lot of recruits?

    It’s nice to see that Heupel is pounding the pavement and personally handing out offers. That’s impressive, but he was really dealt a crappy hand with assistants. I really feel bad for the guy and Knight nation needs to rally behind him

    He’s OUR savior right now!

    I'm assuming his coaches will start coming after Bowl games.

    it's hard to gauge when we don't have a full staff yet. no more announcements is a bit concerning, right now UCF only has a staff of 3 coaches

    Be careful what you wish for. He may want Mikesi in his section someday and may end up being on the wrong side of the wall he wants built.

    We need to get a tight end with good hands. TE maybe one of our biggest needs. Heupel likes throwing to tight ends in his system. :sunglasses:

    False, we have Bellamy as well for this year, plays both TE and defense, Hescock the transfer from Wisc. and then Roberson from 2017 class.

    It's not so much his size as it is how he moves that girth.

    UCF claims he's upper 6', but his ex-coach from wisc says he's more like 5'. Hescock says it's because it's cold in Wisconsin.

    If Hescock is huge in the cold in Wisconsin, Hescock is HUGE!
