The Orlando Sentinel reports that UCF senior LB Terrance Plummer was named the national defensive player of the week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Plummer, had a career-high 17 tackles - 4.5 for loss - versus BYU last Thursday helping the Knights to 31-24 overtime victory. In the fourth quarter, the senior stepped up big when it mattered the most and put together a string of impressive fourth quarter plays. The UCF Prospect came up with a forced fumble, fumble recovery and a sack for a loss. Plummer currently leads the Knights with 53 tackles and has 7.5 tackles for loss.

UCF sophomore QB Justin Holman "has the size, arm strength and mobility to certainly qualify as a prospect to keep an eye on for the future," CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote.

"The sophomore needs to learn to sprinkle in some touch on his passes rather than relying just on velocity and threw two interceptions [against BYU on Thursday], including one late in which he forced a pass late over the middle," Rang wrote. Holman (6-foot-4, 213 pounds) completed 28-of-48 attempts for 314 yards and carried nine times for 20 yards and a touchdown versus the Cougars.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that UCF senior LB Terrance Plummer "currently checks in as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 12 inside linebacker."

Rang notes that the 6-foot-1, 232-pound Plummer,"was all over the field" versus BYU as he recorded at least 15 tackles, including several tackles for loss. The senior linebacker also forced and recovered a fumble. Last season, Plummer led the Knights with 110 total tackles.

UCF senior WR Rannell Hall "provided evidence in the 31-24 overtime win over BYU to suggest that he, too, may have a future in the NFL," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"While Bortles is now starting for the Jacksonville Jaguars, his favorite receiver from a year ago -- Rannell Hall -- provided evidence in the 31-24 overtime win over BYU to suggest that he, too, may have a future in the NFL," Rang writes. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Hall hauled a game-high eight passes for 71 yards on the night against BYU. The UCF prospect also added in a 58-yard kick return in the third quarter which helped the Knights get back into the game after surrendering three consecutive touchdowns. Rang adds that, Hall's "grit and reliability will earn high marks from scouts, he isn't an elite athlete. He's quicker than fast, which likely means that his best chance at success in the NFL will come out of the slot."

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman caught six balls for 83 yards in Thursday's 31-24 overtime victory over BYU.

Perriman's previous season-high in catches was only three, which speaks more to his acclimation from Blake Bortles to Justin Holman than anything. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder was Bortles' favorite deep-ball receiver and ranked near the NCAA leaders with a 20.8 yards per catch average last year. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Perriman as a preseason Round 5 prospect.

UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers "plays with a special teams mentality," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

It's a useful observation, as Geathers will likely have to make the NFL as a special-teamer at first. "Geathers entered the season stamped as a free agent prospect by scouts but has since elevated his game," Pauline wrote. "In four games this year the senior posted 35 tackles and during UCF’s conference victory over Houston last week he intercepted 1 pass while breaking up 2 more. He’s a forceful safety best in the box and plays with a special teams mentality." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote in July that Geathers "has the athleticism to play in reverse." The Golden Knight has serious NFL bloodlines. His uncles Robert Sr. and Jumpy both played in the NFL, as did cousins Kwame, Clifton and Robert Jr.

Orlando Sentinel reports that since WR Rannell Hall is serving a mandatory first half suspension, UCF freshman WR Jordan Akins will see a lot of time on the field versus Houston.

The 22 year-old Akins, a former Texas Ranger baseball player, made his debut on the collegiate field this season. So far this year, Akins has ran back five kickoffs for 142 yards, including a return for 68-yards. The 6-foot-3, 237-pound Akins was a former quarterback, at Strong Rock Christian high school in Georgia.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that UCF senior WR Rannell Hall will miss the first half of the Knights' game due to a target penalty during the Knights' 41-7 win over Bethune-Cookman Saturday.

The 6-foot-1, 200 pound Hall, was blocking a defender for teammate Breshad Perriman. The officials believes that the defender was defenseless on the play and Hall launched towards the player. During three games this season, Hall has recorded 73 receiving yards on eight receptions.
Sep 24 - 2:49 PM

After a strong performance in the second half versus Penn State last week, UCF sophomore QB Justin Holman will get the opportunity to start versus Missouri next week.

UCF head coach George O’Leary went with redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo start the game and he struggled. DiNovo was only 3-of-8 passing for 18 yards in the first half. The 6-foot-4, 207 pound Holman, led the Knights offense to 21 points in the second half, putting up 204 passing yards. Holman had two touchdowns on the day, with one through the air and one on the ground.
Sep 6 - 12:13 PM

UCF sophomore RB Williams Stanback did not suit up for the season opener against Penn State.

Beat writer Bob Flounders no explanation as to why. Many expected Stanback to take over top running back duties with Storm Johnson, and he still might once he returns. The sophomore rushed for 443 yards and six touchdowns on 105 attempts in 2013.
Aug 30 - 11:10 AM

Over the weekend, UCF head coach George O'Leary denied reports that he will step down after the season opener.

"I don’t know anything about that stuff and where that came from," O'Leary told the Orlando Sentinel late Saturday. "I never spoke to anybody from Fox or anybody. I don’t have any idea what that’s about." Fox Sports reported Saturday that O'Leary was considering resigning after the Aug. 30 opener against Penn State in Ireland, leaving assistant head coach Brent Key to take over as head coach. UCF Athletic Director Todd Stansbury said no such discussions have taken place.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wants to see how UCF redshirt junior WR Breshad Perriman performs without Blake Bortles before making a final assessment on him.

"Perriman is the team’s top prospect and while some rate the junior as a middle round choice, I want to see how he responds with Blake Bortles no longer throwing him the ball," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder was Bortles' favorite deep-ball receiver and ranked near the top of the leader boards with a 20.8 yards per catch average (38 catches for 811 receiving yards) last year. Pauline grades Perriman as a preseason Round 5 prospect.

UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers "has the athleticism to play in reverse," observes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

In addition to his athletic gifts, Geathers has serious NFL bloodlines. His uncles Robert Sr. and Jumpy both played in the NFL, as did cousins Kwame, Clifton and Robert Jr. Clayton Geathers finished second on the Knights last year with 100 tackles. He also defended 12 passes.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler thinks UCF senior LB Terrance Plummer must improve his hand technique to succeed at the next level.

"He shows good backfield vision with a strong grip to finish tackles once he makes contact, but he needs to pack more ammo into his hands at the point of attack to better work through the trash in the middle of the field," Brugler wrote. Plummer led the Knights in 2013 with 110 total tackles. UCF's defense will be fearsome in 2014 with nine returning starters.

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman "uses his size and athleticism well," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

The 6-foot-2, 209-pound Perriman was Blake Bortles' favorite deep-ball receiver in 2013 and ranked near the top of the leader boards with a 20.8 yards per catch average. "He needs to be more reliable as a hands-catcher and eliminate the drops, but he uses his size and athleticism well," Brugler wrote. Perriman finished with 38 catches and 811 receiving yards in 2013, numbers he'll top if he can be more consistent this fall.
