Four-star shooting guard and ex-Tennessee Volunteer commitment Kevin Ware has made a solid verbal commitment to the Knights.
The No.14 shooting guard in the country, let out of his commitment to the Volunteers following the firing of ex-Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl, visited campus this weekend and was also visited by Knights head coach Donnie Jones Monday night. Over the weekend Ware spent time with Knights forward Tristan Spurlock and recent signee Michael Chandler.
Ware is coming off leading Rockdale County to a Georgia state title and told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that being able to play immediately and a connection established with Jones and the Knights current players factored into his decision.
Ware averaged 19 points a game in his senior season and has chosen the Knights over programs including Louisville, Georgia, and South Carolina. Ware provides another outside scoring threat for UCF, an element the team will need going forward to round out their offensive attack.
