While John Calipari’s four commits spent the week in Chicago trying to recruit Kevin Knox and Mo Bamba to come to Kentucky, Michael Porter Jr. was trying to convince them to visit Missouri. His pitch worked for Knox.
Knox will use his fifth and final official visit to see what Columbia, Missouri has to offer next weekend.
“Great opportunity to visit Missouri and get to know Coach Cuonzo Martin,” the nation’s second-ranked small forward told ZagsBlog. “I’ve talking to Micheal Porter Jr. and we have been discussing the endless possibilities of the 2 top wings playing together…..I have a 5th visit and my family and I decided to take it.”
Knox plans on making his final decision in a little more than three weeks time. If the Tigers could get Knox to commit, they would have the nation’s No. 1 and No. 2 small forwards on the same team. It just means more.
