Kevin Knox has a place in Lexington, according to PJ Washington

This time of year we’re usually wondering if Kentucky is going to have enough room for all of its guards and not its forwards, but this year it’s the latter.

Kentucky already has commitments from PJ Washington and Jarred Vanderbilt, but Cal is still waiting on Kennedy Meeks-look-alike Kevin Knox to announce his commitment. Washington, however, believes there’s plenty of room for the forward in Lexington, according to the Herald Leader’s Ben Roberts:

Washington said he isn’t concerned with how other recruits might affect his own playing time. He just wants the best players at UK.

“I know we’re going to play great together,” he said. “Coach Cal is good with good players, and he’s going to find the right system for all of us to do good things on the court.”

Knox is considering Kentucky, Duke and Florida State. The 6-9 forward also just took his official visit to North Carolina.

We’ll see what happens in the next couple months, but hey, the more the merrier? Am I right?

    We desperately need Knox, we have no good shooters for next year without him (unless one of the recruits ends up being better than expected or Wenyen improves a lot) which would make us easy prey to zone defense. With him our offense will be significantly better because he’s that good of a shooter. He reminds me of DJ Hogg of TA&M except way more athletic and a much better all-around player.

    I read the title as that he has a place to live in Lexington, lol. Like his family bought a place already. That would have been a great tip though huh.

    Knox would take next year’s squad to another level, but the addition of shot-blockers like Bamba and Richards protecting the rim would improve the defense exponentially over this year (rhe lack of a consistent shot-blocker being the key missing piece IMO). They key to Knox may be a return by Gabriel and with Bamba, it may be Bam’s presence. Wenyen returning might seem like a no-brainer, but financial need may cause an ill-advised departure. A main frontcourt of Bam, Bamba, Washington & Richards may be a tough sell. If it were to happen the likelihood of one or two of SKJ, Humphries or Wynyard leaving grows exponentially as well.
