ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - As the college football season preview magazines begin making their way to newsstands this summer, UCF will certainly be a featured program across the country. And that was evident when Phil Steele's College Football Preview edition hit the shelves.

UCF junior kick returner Quincy McDuffie (Orlando, Fla.) was named to the magazine's Preseason All-American Team, earning a spot on the Fourth Team. McDuffie completed 2010 as a member of the All-Conference USA First Team by recording 1,067 all-purpose yards. That included 869 kickoff return yards and two touchdowns. McDuffie now sits in third all-time at UCF with 1,813 return yards, all in just two seasons in Black and Gold.

Along with McDuffie's Preseason All-America honor, here are a few more individual notes:

Jr. Quincy McDuffie - No. 6 among draft-eligible kick returners
Jr. Josh Robinson - No. 8 among draft-eligible punt returners
Jr. Josh Robinson - No. 14 among draft-eligible cornerbacks
Jr. Kemal Ishmael - No. 29 among draft-eligible free safeties
RS Sr. Adam Nissley - No. 39 among draft-eligible tight ends
