UCF adds 17, focuses on defense in signing class

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) UCF is heading into rare territory next season as it vies for its third consecutive American Athletic Conference title. Now it's hoping its latest roster additions will help to fortify a defense with key holes to fill.

The Knights signed 17 players to national letters of intent on Wednesday. Nine are on defense, where it lost seven starters from a 2014 unit ranked in the top 10 in the country in both total and scoring defense.

The biggest need was at defensive back. UCF lost all four starters there, including sophomore cornerback Jacoby Glenn, who declared for the NFL draft after earning second-team AP All-America honors.
