This is the first year fan voting will be taken into account when selecting a UCF Athletics Hall of Fame class. The top four vote recipients from online balloting will be given one vote that will be added to the total received from the UCF Athletics Hall of Fame committee and current UCF Athletics Hall of Fame members.
The newest class of inductees will be announced in June and will be honored in person in the fall.
