For those of you wondering if Brandon Knight was going to keep his signature cornrows when he came to Lexington, wonder no more. Knight was showed up at a Broward County Athletic Banquet yesterday with a fresh ‘do. While there, he was awarded with the Basketball Player of the Year as well as the Overall Male Athlete of the Year. He was also a runner up for Scholar Athlete of the Year.
His mom, Tonya, said he cut them to “make himself more marketable”. But I’m sure Coach Cal doesn’t care what his hair looks like if he continues to excel in the classroom in college like he did in high school. Now combine that fresh cut with his flawless ability to recite Shakespeare, and this guy is going to be a huge ladykiller at UK. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
