Ke’von Ahmad, the 6-foot freshman wide receiver for the University of Central Florida, brings solid credentials from his stint on the Colleyville Heritage High School varsity football team.
A 2018 high-school graduate, Ahmad helped his high school team earn a No. 67 ranking in Texas—487 nationally—during his four years as a Heritage High Panther, where he served as running back and slotback, according to MaxPreps.com.
Under coach Joe Willis, Ahmad and the rest of the Panthers achieved a 11-2 record in 2017, Ahmad’s senior year. According to his player’s bio on the UCF Knights website, Ahmad was No. 70 wide receiver and No. 72 player in his home state.
During his senior year, he logged 98 passes, gaining more than 1,600 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Although he was recruited by other high-profile teams, including Baylor, Boise State and Houston, Ahmad signed with the Knights. One report on 247Sports.com said Ahmad would bring speed and maturity to the team’s already-solid defense.
