Knights Add "T2" and "Mack" to the Football Roster from Transfer Portal

UCF lands two front seven defenders that will have an immediate impact on the football program.

Ask and you shall receive. Roughly 1 p.m. today, The Daily Knight podcast put out a podcast discussing UCF's needs from the Transfer Portal mentioned needing two linebackers. Well, here...they...are!

KD McDaniel comes to UCF from Tift County High School in Tifton, Ga. He's a good fit for the same role that Big Kat Bryant played for the Knights this past season, being a hybrid linebacker/defensive end. Ironically, they are both from the same area of Georgia.

Here's a look at McDaniel's high school film. Look for a closer look at McDaniel's talents on Tuesday morning including the variety of ways he can help UCF's defense.

The first linebacker to announce for the Knights today would be Terrence "T2" Lewis from Miami. He went to Maryland originally after finishing up high school at Miami Central. Lewis is a phenomenal talent and one that possesses rare all-around skills that Inside The Knights will detail in a report later tonight. For now, know that based on talent alone, this is the best recruit in the entire country for the class of 2021. 

Yes, No. 1 in the entire class.

UCF Football just added two very talented football players. Knights fans should be rejoicing right now!
