Five-star 6’8 small forward Kevin Knox has committed to Kentucky! The Tampa (Fla.) Catholic product is ranked second in his position, right between Michael Porter Jr., who is committed to Missouri, and Jarred Vanderbilt who is coming to Kentucky. Knox is ranked 10th nationally overall.

Heading into tonight’s announcement, Knox was a heavy favorite towards Duke in the 247 sports Crystal Ball profile.
This commitment puts Kentucky with three small forwards on their roster with Knox, Vanderbilt, Wenyen Gabriel.
Knox also had offers from Duke, UNC, Florida State and Missouri.
This is great news for the Cats and will give them a little depth if Mo Bamba decides to go to Duke or Texas.
