ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Hoping to maintain the momentum coming off a record-breaking 12-win season and Fiesta Bowl victory, UCF has signed 17 players for its 2014 recruiting class.

Knights coach George O'Leary announced the defensive-heavy group during a news conference Wednesday. He says he is pleased the group overall, calling it the best he's had at UCF from a height, weight and speed standpoint.

UCF lost just seven scholarship seniors from last year's team, but did have underclassmen quarterback Blake Bortles and Storm Johnson depart early for the NFL draft.

Nine of the new recruits are on the defensive side of the ball. Nine players come from Georgia, with seven hailing from Florida.

The class also features some players that chose UCF over traditional powers like Alabama, Florida State and Wisconsin.

The March to Victory starts with UCF fans. Renew or order season tickets, starting at $99, todayonline or by calling 407-UCF-1000. To learn about the Croke Park Classic against Penn State Aug. 30 in Dublin, Ireland, check out UCF.CrokeParkClassic.com.
