ESPN 100 shooting guard Adonys Henriquez (Orlando, Fla./Orlando Christian Prep) made a verbal commitment to Central Florida this weekend, marking the fourth player to commit to head coach Donnie Jones in the last two weeks.
The hot streak for UCF began with ESPN 60 power forward Alex Owens (Orlando, Fla./Oak Ridge) on Sept. 17, grew a day later with junior point guard Corey Sanders (Lakeland, Fla./IMG Academy), continued to gain momentum late last week with 2015 power forward Chad Brown (Deltona, Fla./Deltona) and was punctuated by Henriquez's decision on Sunday morning.
Why he committed: Henriquez was previously committed to Miami and continued to make staying close to home a priority during his second time through the process. He picked UCF over Butler, Vanderbilt, Minnesota and Creighton.
