2019 three-star DE Shawnkel Knight-Goff is going to have to switch out that red prom suit for Kentucky blue…
This afternoon, the No. 5 prospect in the state of Kentucky (Louisville Doss High School) announced his commitment to KENTUCKY!
Knight-Goff, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound DE/OLB, received an offer from the Cats back in July of 2016.

Almost two years later, he made it official.
Kentucky assistant coach Vince Marrow called the Yahtzee, and Rivals’ Justin Rowland later confirmed it was indeed Knight-Goff.

Knight-Goff becomes the fifth commitment to Kentucky over the last two weeks, joining West Jessamine OL Eli Cox, South Carolina DB Jalen Geiger, Florida quarterback Nik Scalzo, and Florida OL Jake Pope.
According to Justin Rowland, Knight-Goff, who was on an unofficial visit to Kentucky today, is expected to play outside linebacker for the Cats in 2019.
I watched Doss play safety at a 7v7 passing tournament at Commonwealth last summer. He's listed as a defensive end. THAT kind of versatility. I'm told he's most likely an OLB at Kentucky.

The newest commitment chose the Cats over offers from Louisville, Purdue, Cincinnati, and Indiana.
Speaking of Louisville, the Cards held 57% of Knight-Goff’s Crystal Ball predictions, including two submissions over the last three days:
What a beautiful sight.
