ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Thanks to another impressive haul during Wednesday's National Signing Day, UCF received a 2.79 average star rating by Rivals.com. As of Thursday morning, that was the highest of any school from Conference USA, Mountain West, MAC, Sun Belt and the WAC.

That 2.79 star rating also was tied with Penn State for No. 50 in the nation. It ranked ahead of the following schools from the ACC, Big 12, BIG EAST, Big 10, Pac-12 and SEC: Duke, NC State, Iowa State, Syracuse, Connecticut, Northwestern, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Washington State.

UCF's class consisted of 19 members, and its rating from Rivals.com was based on 14 signees. The Knights' three mid-year enrollees (Jeremy Davis, Jared Henry and Breshad Perriman) as well as transfers Tyler Gabbert and Phil Smith did not factor into the ranking.
