OCALA-- The College of Central Florida men's basketball team recently added five signees for the 2014-2015 season.

Devaughn Jenkins (The Rock, Gainesville, Fla.), Corbyn Jackson (Radford University), Miguel Cartagena (George Washington University), Dwayne Daniel (Lawrence High Schol, N.Y.) and Barrington Alston (Towson University) are the newest Patriot players.

Jenkins, a 6-foot-7 forward, played at the same school that produced SEC Player of the Year and All-American guard Scottie Wilbekin, as well as projected NBA Lottery Pick, Joel Embiid. A year ago, Jenkins helped the Lions to 23 victories and was dominant in the Marion-Alachua All-Star Game.

Jackson (6-7, 250) averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds as a senior at Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy.

Cartagena, a guard, played his high school basketball at Montverede (Fla.) Academy and helped the Eagles to the No. 1 ranking in the ESPN Prep Poll. As a freshman at George Washington, Cartagena saw action in 32 games and played 6.5 minutes per contest.

Daniel (5-10, guard) averaged nearly 18 points per game last season for Cedarhurst High, along with 4.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds.

Alston (6-8, 220) saw action in eight games as a freshman for Towson. He came out of high school as a three-star prospect according to both Rivals and Scout.com. Alston was rated as the third-best player in the state of Delaware by ESPN.com. He also played for the highly-rated Team Takeover AAU program.
