Knights Returning to Waynesboro
Another long-standing partner of the Generals, the University of Central Florida Knights, will be sending two key contributors from Orlando to Waynesboro for the 2018 season. The 23rd-ranked Knights, according to Baseball America, will be sending infielder Jackson Webb and outfielder Dalton Wingo to the Generals. As UCF looks geared to make a deep NCAA Regional run this season, Webb and Wingo may be tardy on their arrival to Waynesboro, but Greg Lovelady and staff insure these two will be impact players for the Generals.
Jackson Webb – Infielder
A native of Roswell, Georgia, the 6’0 176-pound redshirt-sophomore comes to UCF after spending his freshman season at Georgia Tech and one year at Gulf Coast State College. The switch-hitting Webb was a 37th Round draft pick of the Atlanta Braves in 2015. Webb’s one season at Gulf Coast State College was deemed a success as he was named First Team All-Conference with a .357 batting average, 14 doubles, 1 home run and 15 stolen bases. The versatile infielder has the ability to play all three infield positions and will be a consistent piece for the Knights and Generals during their respective 2018 seasons.
Dalton Wingo – Outfielder
A native of Plant City, Florida, the 6’1 190-pound freshman came to UCF as one of the Knights’ most treasured recruits. The right-handed hitting Wingo was ranked by Perfect Game as the 123rd best outfielder in the country’s class of 2017. He was also ranked by Perfect Game as the talent-rich state of Florida’s 5th best outfielder and 31stoverall recruit. The 2017 Rawlings-Perfect Game 3rd Team All-American and Florida-All Region 1st Team is a highly followed prospect by MLB scouts and projects to lead UCF for years to come.
