UCF DB Jason Duclona Enters Transfer Portal

Minutes after UCF landed former Ohio State defensive back Cedrick Hawkins through the transfer portal, one Knight entered his name into the portal.

UCF redshirt freshman defensive back Jason Duclona announced his intention to enter the transfer portal on Saturday to look for a new program.


Duclona discussed his decision to enter the transfer portal and thanked his teammates, coaches, and fans for their support throughout the process.

“First and most importantly, I would like to thank God for everything he has done for me,” Duclona said in a statement. “I know he has great plans for me later in life, so I’d like to thank him for giving me an opportunity to play at the University of Central Florida.”

Coming out of Estero High School in the Class of 2023, Duclona was listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index and the nation’s 752nd-ranked player. He also checked in as the 35th-ranked player at his position and the 97th-ranked player in the state of Florida.

After landing Hawkins through the portal in exchange for losing Duclona, the transfer portal’s cause-and-effect nature can be seen on full display in Orlando.
