UK’s Media Relations department sent out a Tweet this afternoon saying Rivals’ #1 overall player, Brandon Knight, signed a financial aid offer with UK, rather than the traditional Letter of Intent. While not a cause for alarm, the difference in the paperwork means that should Knight decide that Kentucky is not the place to spend a year of college (as he might if Cal left for a desk job at Eli Lilly), he can have more wiggle room to get his release. The only restriction of the financial aid offer states that he cannot receive financial aid from an SEC school within the next two years. To UK fans, this probably only means that Brandon Knight is indeed just as smart as he’s been built up to be. With that option available, there’s really no reason for any top player to not do the same.
