UK Freshmen Scout UK Freshmen: Kevin Knox

Way back in August I was able to sit down with each member of the Kentucky Wildcats to talk about the college basketball season ahead, and part of my discussion with the new class of freshmen included a brief scouting report on each of their classmates.

Due to time constraints I was unable to get a complete report from all seven of the new Cats, but here’s what I heard about Kevin Knox when I asked his fellow freshmen to describe his game.

On Kevin Knox…

Quade Green: “I’ll say Kevin Knox is a good all-around player. He plays both ends of the floor. He’s a great catch-and-shoot shooter. He can put it on the floor. He can create his own shot.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: “Versatile.”

P.J. Washington: “He can shoot it. He’s athletic. He’s long. He can run in transition. He can play defense. He can rebound. He’s a great player.”

Jemarl Baker: “Kevin, he can shoot; knock down; he can defend; he’s long, tall — he can do everything.”

Kevin Knox: “My role is to come in and shoot the basketball, dribble the basketball; pretty much be an all-around type player; positionless. Be able to defend any position, play any position, and just come out and put the ball in the basket.”
