Joining Torrell Troup in the NFL's Class of 2010 are former UCF Knights Ian Bustillo (Tampa Bay), Rocky Ross (Jacksonville), and Michael Greco (New York Giants).

The three players will be joining their teams shortly either as undrafted free agents or for an invitation to try out. Deals will become official when they pass physicals and sign paperwork.

Bustillo started 20 games at center for UCF, including all 13 in 2009. With the help of Bustillo, the UCF Knights' offense made one of the biggest improvements in college football. 

Rocky Ross had 157 career receptions and 1,984 career receiving yards with the black and gold, and earned a spot on 2009's ESPN The Magazine's Academic All-American Team.

Greco was the quarterback for the Knights in 2008 before becoming a safety in 2009. He quickly adapted, and impressed scouts at UCF's Pro Day, where he ran a 4.37-second 40-yard dash.

Stay tuned for more information on UCF Knights football during the offseason.
