UCF Knights 2011 Season Preview Quarterbacks- Dual-threat QB Jeff Godfrey returns for his sophomore season after an impressive freshman campaign passing for over 2,100 yards, 13 TDs, and 8 INTs. He also rushed for 566 yards and 10 TDs. Jeff Godfrey Running Backs- UCF’s backfield will be loaded this season with 3 good HB options. Junior Brynn Harvey is expected to start after returning from an injury that kept him out of 2010. In 2009 Harvey rushed for 1,109 yards and 14 TDs. Senior Ronnie Weaver should see a lot of playing time as he rushed for 890 yards and 11 TD’s in 2010 and junior Latavious Murray will se time at HB and FB. He rushed for 637 yards and 11 TDs in 2010. It might be tough to have enough carries for these running backs UCF certainly is loaded at tailback. Brynn Harvey Wide Receivers/Tight Ends- AJ Guyton and Quincy McDuffie have speed at the outside receiver’s positions and both can play in the slot. Sophomore Marquee Williams is the wideout of the future and has a good mix of size and speed. Senior TE Adam Nissley is very good, but with the talent at HB will be required to block a lot. Offensive Line- The offensive line isn’t UCF’s strength this year but they will look very good blocking for Harvey, Murray, and Weaver. They have youth at tackle and will only improve the next two years Defensive Line- Defensive end Darius Nall should have a great season as a pass rusher in UCF’s 4-3 scheme. Sophomore DT Victor Gray will clog up holes and will be a big part of the UCF defense this year and in the future. Linebackers- UCF is weak at the linebacker position but MLB Josh Linam will lead the Knight defense in 2011. UCF has a few freshmen who may not play much now but look to be decent backups this season Defensive Backs- Junior Josh Robinson is a shutdown corner and should be able to hang with any receiver in the C-USA. FS Kemal Ishmael is the best player on the UCF defense any will be flying all over the field. Rumor has it that Ishmael is UCF’s 2nd string QB with 84 throw power and 79 accuracy. Depending on whether we allow custom playbooks, Ishmael should receive some snaps at wildcat QB. Kemal Ishmael Kicking- UCF has 2 seniors kicking and punting this season. They will need to focus and sign at least 1 kicker in the class of 2012. Overview- UCF won the Conference USA going 11-3 in 2010 and is poised to make another run for the title. Their running game is good enough to hang with anyone and sophomore QB Godfrey will help passing and running. The defense is good but the offense will be winning the games for the Knights. UCF's smashmouth style of offense will be very good and if the defense steps up they can win the conference which is the #1 goal for the 1st year coach.
