Hot prospects: UCF also has promising additions who sat out last season in former Miami running back Storm Johnson and former Colorado State quarterback Nico Ranieri. The Knights were said to have as many as 10 silent commitments a week ago, so George O'Leary could have considerably more on signing day than what has been made public. UCF flipped Kentucky commitment Jacoby Glenn this week and is still in the hunt for Georgia QB Chris Moody.
