Central Florida coach Donnie Jones landed another impact recruit on Monday when local product Shawn Smith (Jacksonville, Fla./Providence School) pledged to the Knights.

The Super 60 prospect committed to the Conference USA school, despite holding offers from Florida, Florida State, Cincinnati, Ole Miss, West Virginia, South Carolina, Kansas State and Missouri.

"Coach Jones really didn't have his recruiters recruiting me, he was on me himself," Smith said, "and no one recruited me harder."
