UCF junior WR Tre'Quan Smith "offers enough size and skill to make a next level roster as a fourth wideout," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Smith (6'1/200) boasts 25 receptions, 523 yards and seven touchdowns through six games this year, good for an average of over 20 yards per catch. He posted a 57-853-5 receiving line last fall.

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton completed 21-of-27 passes for 324 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for an additional score in Saturday's 63-21 bludgeoning of ECU.

Lovely work from Milton in this one. He did all of his damage in the first half, tossing both touchdown passes in the first quarter before punching the ball in from one yard out midway through the second stanza. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder has shown metronomic consistency throughout the campaign, particularly in terms of the touchdown pass -- he has thrown at least two in four of five games. On the whole, Milton has passed for 1,489 yards with a 15/2 TD/INT ratio. UCF improved to 5-0 with Saturday's easy win. They'll try for win No. 6 against Navy next weekend.
Oct 14 - 10:56 PM

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton has thrown more deep touchdown passes (9) this year than any other FBS quarterback, according to Pro Football Focus.

Milton doesn't get talked about with some of the other elite quarterbacks in the country, but very few have played better; particularly when throwing the ball deep. It helps to have talented options like Tre-Quan Smith and Dredrick Snelson to throw the ball to, but Milton deserves a lot of the credit there. He could be a Heisman contender in 2018 or 2019.
Oct 9 - 9:42 PM

UCF junior WR Tre-Quan Smith caught five passes for 165 yards and three scores in a 51-23 rout of Cincinnati on Saturday.

Smith (6'1/200) doesn't get as many touches as some of the other top wideouts in the country, but you better believe he makes the most of them. He's had multiple touchdowns in his last three games, and nine on the season. He could have had another one -- or more -- if not for the game being called due to the nasty weather. Expect him to reach the end zone a time or two next week against East Carolina.
Oct 8 - 12:04 AM

UCF Sophomore QB McKenzie Milton completed 16-of-19 passes for 374 yards and five scores in a 51-23 victory that was cut short due to weather on Saturday.

Fortunately for the Bearcats, and unfortunately for Milton (5'11/170) what could have been a historic night just ends up being tremendous. To say that the Bearcats struggled with the talented sophomore is the understatement of the evening. The Knights might have pulled him anyway with the four-score lead, but you can't help but wonder what could have been. UCF takes on ECU next week, so expect plenty more fireworks.
Oct 8 - 12:01 AM

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton completed 19-of-31 passes for 253 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 88 yards in Saturday's 40-13 win over Memphis.

Milton (5'11/170) notched two of his three touchdown passes in the second help, helping to keep game well out of reach as the Knights improved to 3-0. The sophomore gunslinger has thrown for at least three touchdowns in two of three games this season. Cincinnati shows next on the schedule.
Sep 30 - 11:30 PM

UCF sophomore RB Jawon Hamilton will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery for a leg injury.

Hamilton (5'9/185) sustained the season-ending leg injury during the first quarter of Saturday's win over Maryland. Prior to going down injured, he had rushed for 51 yards and a touchdown in two games. He could potentially be eligible for a medical hardship waiver for the current campaign. In his absence, Taj McGowan and Adrian Killins will see the bulk of carries moving forward.
Sep 27 - 6:22 PM

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton completed 18-of-30 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 94 yards on six attempts in Saturday's 38-10 dismantling of Maryland.

Milton wasn't lighting it up through the air, but he led the team in rushing while working to a 15.6 YPC mark. UCF has played just two games this season due to Hurricane Irma. They'll continue to settle into the season next weekend, when they take on Memphis in a rescheduled contest.
Sep 23 - 6:38 PM

Friday's scheduled game between UCF and Memphis has been canceled due to the threat of Hurricane Irma.

The game was originally moved up to Friday from Saturday night. The threat of the storm caused school officials to waive off the contest completely. The news came less than 24 hours before kick, with Memphis already en route to Orlando. The Tigers landed and promptly boarded a flight back to Tennessee. "Out of an abundance of caution, we agree that the game should not be played on Friday," UCF athletics director Danny White and Memphis athletics director Tom Bowen said in a joint statement released Saturday morning. "We agree with Gov. [Rick] Scott that preparation for Hurricane Irma should be the top priority for the state. While our fans will no doubt be disappointed, we know they understand that safety has to come first."
Sep 8 - 4:02 PM

UCF junior WR Tre'Quan Smith caught three passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 61-17 win over FIU.

Smith wasn't doing much in terms of volume, but he made his three grabs count and then some. His biggest contribution came on a 50-yard scoring bomb from McKenzie Milton midway through the first quarter. He would score again (in less flashy fashion) on a three-yard catch with about four minutes gone in the third quarter. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder posted a 57-853-5 receiving line to lead the Knights during the 2016 campaign.
Aug 31 - 9:34 PM

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton completed 16-of-21 passes for 360 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 61-17 shredding of FIU.

Milton brought the pain early, firing off three touchdown passes in the first quarter to help lead the Knights to a dominating 40-10 halftime lead. He would throw one more touchdown in the third quarter to cap off his impressive performance. Milton will try to build on this showing --albeit against tougher competition -- when UCF takes on Memphis a week from Saturday. He threw for 1,983 yards (57.7% completions) with a 10/7 TD/INT ratio as a true freshman last season.
Aug 31 - 9:30 PM

Alabama sophomore CB Aaron Robinson transferred to UCF.

Robinson (6'1/175) was utilized on special teams as a true freshman last season, but the former four-star recruit was unable to gain a foothold on the depth chart during the spring. He likely would have served as a backup during the coming season had he toughed it out with the Tide. Robinson will have to sit out the 2017 campaign to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations and will have three years of eligibility remaining come 2018.

Central Florida ruled K Donald De La Haye ineligible.

De La Haye is off the team for not accepting the terms of an NCAA waiver relating to his YouTube videos. De La Haye's YouTube channel has 91,000 followers. The NCAA offered him two options: 1.) Don’t reference his status as an NCAA athlete but keep the site monetized, or, 2.) Don't change a thing but stop monetizing until his eligibility exhausted. De La Haye chose Option 3 -- refusal -- and is now off the Knights team. It wasn't an easy call: The Costa Rican kicker sent some of the money he made to his cash-strapped family back home.
Aug 1 - 2:09 PM

AL.com's Matt Zenitz reports that Alabama sophomore CB Aaron Robinson will transfer.

Robinson (6'1/175) worked mostly with the second-team defense this spring and was expected to see a backup role for the coming season. He was a four-star recruit for the 2016 cycle, but played sparingly outside of special teams as a true freshman. One note on Robinson to keep in mind -- he has ability as both a corner and a receiver. While Alabama opted to use him as a defensive piece, it will be interesting to see whether some intrigued parties might view him as a wideout.

In March, UCF redshirt sophomore CB Nevelle Clarke was suspended a minimum of six games for a failed drug test.

Knights wide receiver Tristan Payton was also suspended for a half-season for a failed drug test, per UCF's rules. The tests were administered prior to the Cure Bowl against Arkansas State, and both tested positive for marijuana. Clarke was supposed to be the team's No. 1 CB this fall following the graduation of starting corners Shaquill Griffin and D.J. Killings.
