  UCF has closed the book on Gabriel Davis' stellar career and the Knights are already working to identify their next great wide receiver. It's a story receivers coach Darrell Wyatt said hasn't been written yet. When Wyatt was asked who would replace Davis, who declared early for the NFL after setting the single-season school record with 1,241 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season, he responded, "I was asked this question two years ago. That's still a work in progress. Who's going to be the guy? I think you earn that in practice. You earn that in the scrimmages. "We've got some talented guys. We've got a few guys that have come back and made some plays, but past results do not guarantee future results. Every day, they come out and grind and the guy that emerges will be the go-to guy."

Before UCF suspended spring football workouts due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Knights' receivers were battling to show Wyatt they could replace Davis. Tre Nixon entered the offseason as a strong candidate for the job. Nixon was second on the team behind Davis in receiving yards (830) and receiving touchdowns (7) last season while third in catches (49) behind Davis and Marlon Williams. He also was targeted 94 times, second-most behind Davis (133). "Tre's done a great job for us for two years," Wyatt said. "He's had some big plays for us. He's been able to get deep and give us some big plays, but he wants to improve his overall game. He's been in what we call the lab, working on his craft." Nixon, who transferred from Ole Miss in 2017, points to several areas of his game he's hoping to bolster this spring. - Orlando Sentinel
