Kevin Knox will take an Official Visit to Missouri


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.

    Cuonzo did wonders for Ivan Rabb.

    But, seriously, I’d take all my official visits if I was a top recruit. I’m just not sure Mizzou has what I’d be looking for on my fifth leisure visit. I’d probably go to Miami, Arizona St or the likes.

    I’m still hopelessly wishing UK lands Knox. I’m still astonished why recruits goes elsewhere.
    UNC pitch- “be our next Justin Jackson”—–top ten high school recruit who has improved every year but at best a second round pick
    Duke- “We have had SF’s like you”—– Jabari Parker, Brandon Ingram, Jayson Tatum. Jabari can’t stay healthy and his team got knocked out by Mercer. Brandon Ingram is currently riding the bench for the 2nd to last place team in the NBA.
    Mizzou- “We’ll hire your dad too”
    FSU- “Be like your parents and come here!”—- Roster next season will likely be Knox and a bunch of other dudes that pass the ball back to Knox
