One Year Ago Today: Kevin Knox Picks Kentucky

One year ago tonight, John Calipari pulled off one of the biggest recruiting surprises of his time at Kentucky. The #10 player in the class of 2017, ranked as the #2 small forward in the nation announced his commitment to Kentucky, shocking much of the recruiting world.

Leading up to his announcement, many believed Knox was heading to play basketball in the state of North Carolina for Duke or UNC. As we have learned time in and time out, “In Calipari We Trust.” The now former Cat committed to Kentucky and it is hard to picture where this year’s team would have been without him.

The Tampa, Florida native 15.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in what will turn out to be his only season in Lexington. For most fans, Knox will bring a lot of good memories with the most notable being this performance:

Others will remember him for his trademark jumper from the baseline. If you ask a certain reporter, he might remember him for one of their first encounters:

Knox is projected to be picked in the #10-20 range in next month’s NBA Draft. Good Luck to Kevin in his future. Check out the announcement of Knox to Kentucky on KSR, the comments as always are fantastic:

    That interview is funny in light of the fact Knox got name in the midseason reports. Of course nothing came of it, but funny to watch that considering.
