UCF gets another from Homestead

Homestead (Fla.) athlete A'Jami Guyton ended his recruitment on Tuesday night when he gave a verbal commitment to an in-state program. The 5-foot-10, 179-pounder made his decision during an in-home visit.

"(Central Florida) head coach George O'Leary just left my house," Guyton said. "I committed to UCF. They were the only ones that showed me that they really wanted me The head coach came to my house and talked to me. That's the place I want to go. That's the place I'll go on Signing Day."

Guyton added that his Homestead teammate and Golden Knights commit Alphonso Bryant will be his roommate in Orlando.

There were several aspects of the program Guyton liked.

"They are upcoming," he said. "They are the only school in Florida with an indoor practice facility, so I like that a lot."

Like Byrant, Guyton will play receiver.

"They recruited me at receiver," he said. "I am going to enjoy playing with (Bryant)."

Guyton visited North Carolina during the weekend and it appeared the Tar Heels had the lead for his services, but things changed quickly.

"They said they were going to give me a call today or yesterday," he said. They didn't call. I prayed about it and made the best decision for me."

Guyton is a three-star rated recruit by Rivals.com. He is rated as the nation's No. 66 athlete.
