UCF senior WR Rannell Hall "made some terrific catches throughout the week, showing excellent timing, positioning and concentration to make contested grabs," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Hall showed terrific body control to adjust over Oregon State CB Steven Nelson to haul in a 32-yard pass in the third quarter. This wasn't the case of one splashy play getting Hall attention, though. He made some terrific catches throughout the week, showing excellent timing, positioning and concentration to make contested grabs," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Hall was Blake Bortles' favorite receiver from a year ago. The UCF Knights' prospect could hear his name called in the draft due to his quickness, which projects nicely to the NFL slot.

NFL scouts speaking to NFL Media analyst Charles Davis "are really buzzing" about UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers.

"Samford's Jaquiski Tartt is the guy most evaluators had their eyes on this week among the small-school prospects, but it was Geathers who outshined most of the defensive backs on the South squad," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "A savvy veteran with many starts under his belt, he was able to read and react quicker than most. He also showed off the coverage skills evaluators want to see from guys that can roam around on the back end and also break to the line of scrimmage well on runs." 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.

UCF redshirt sophomore DB Jacoby Glenn declared for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Glenn is extremely talented. In fact, NFL.com previously wrote he was the best player on UCF's roster. UCF will lose a number of prospects to the NFL, including a couple who left early.

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman will enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

According to Tony Pauline, Perriman did not receive a day one or day two grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board, which means the group suggested he stay in school. Perriman joins a very good receiver class, which follows up potentially the best receiver draft in NFL history. Perriman does win in the "big" game, in terms of off the ground and in contested situations.

UCF redshirt senior OT Torrian Wilson will play in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

The 6-feet-4, 308-pound Wilson started all 13 games at left tackle after a brief spring experiment at guard. It might have been better for Wilson to try out guard, as he probably projects better to that position in the pros. Wilson earned a spot on Phil Steele's Postseason All-Conference Second Team.
Jan 7 - 1:10 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman did not receive a Day 1 or 2 draft grade.

Pauline, who previously reported Perriman would enter the draft, wrote that the receiver is now "giving more consideration whether he'll enter draft or stay at UCF." Perriman drops balls that he shouldn't, and his technique doesn't inspire, but he's a legit deep threat who forces safeties back. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder finished the season with 50 catches for 1,044 yards (20.9 YPR average) and nine touchdowns.

UCF sophomore QB Justin Holman completed 23 of 53 attempts for 291 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 34-27 loss to UCF.

Holman is a name worth paying attention to next season, as he displays great pocket movement under pressure and is not afraid to get rid of the ball under duress. He did not enter the year as the starter, but Holman quickly showed he was UCF's top quarterback.

UCF redshirt sophomore CB Jacoby Glenn is "the most talented player on UCF's roster," according to NFL.com.

Glenn was recently named a third-team Associated Press All-American after recording seven interceptions and 11 pass breakups this season. The 6-foot, 186-pounder "has good size, excellent instincts and can run," according to staff writer Mike Huguenin. Glenn and SS Clayton Geathers headline an outstanding Golden Knight secondary.

UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Geathers "plays with a special teams mentality," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline earlier this season. We think it's likely that Geathers will have to make a roster on his special teams ability, and perhaps he can showcase that aspect of his game to scouts at the Senior Bowl. 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.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman will enter the draft.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last week that Perriman "is a[n] NFL prospect who will get more and more ink if he declares early." Well, start up the presses. Pauline graded Perriman as a preseason Round 5 prospect, though he's probably inched up boards a little. Perriman drops balls that he shouldn't, and his technique doesn't inspire, but he's a legit deep threat who forces safeties back. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder has caught a touchdown in seven straight contests, and nine of 10. You probably recall his Hail Mary reception to beat East Carolina last week. Perriman collected 41 receptions on the season for 906 yards (a 22.1 YPR average) and nine scores. "Perriman has flashed big time ability the past two seasons as well as an equal amount of inconsistency in his game," Pauline wrote.

UCF senior ILB Terrance Plummer intercepted his first pass of the season in Thursday's win over East Carolina.

Plummer is a tackling machine and a leader of UCF's stout defense. The 6-foot-1, 232-pounder is a bit undersized and can get pushed around, but he's very mobile and shows good diagnostic skills. Plummer is a Day 3 possibility.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 04:14:00 PM

UCF senior WR Rannell Hall had six catches for 65 yards in Thursday's win over East Carolina.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Hall missed a few games earlier this season and struggled with consistency when he was on the field. It was a case of missing good friend Blake Bortles, perhaps. Hall isn't a great athlete, but he may hear his name called in the spring because his quickness projects nicely to the NFL slot.

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman "is a NFL prospect who will get more and more ink if he declares early," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"UCF WR Breshad Perriman is a NFL prospect who will get more and more ink if declares early. Good-sized athlete with big mitts," Brugler tweeted. The UCF prospect finished with four receptions for 139 yards and hauled in a miracle 51-yard Hail Mary as time expired to beat East Carolina 32-30 on Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 209-pound Perriman finished the regular season having caught a touchdown in seven straight contests, and nine of 10.

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman hauled in a miracle 51-yard Hail Mary as time expired to beat East Carolina 32-30 on Thursday.

East Carolina's defensive backs bizarrely didn't defend the goal line, and all mistimed their jumps, allowing the moonshot of a pass from Justin Holman to find Perriman's hands as if a routine play had been called. Perriman finished with four receptions for 139 yards and the miracle score. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder finished the regular season having caught a touchdown in seven straight contests, and nine of 10. The Golden Knights head into bowl season 9-3, including 7-1 in the American, winning a share of the conference for the second straight year.

UCF coach George O'Leary reported that senior receiver J.J. Worton suffered a career-ending torn ACL during UCF's win over SMU last week.

The 6-foot-2, 193-pound Worton ends his career with 168 catches for 2,360 yards and 21 touchdowns. UCF's leading receiver averaged 14 yards per catch during his career and 14.3 this season. Worton played a part on special teams for the Knights, returning 72 punts for 740 yards, while averaging 10.3 yards per return.
