Shawnkel Knight-Goff De-Commits from Kentucky

@itskeltime1

Less than two weeks after committing to Kentucky, Shawnkel Knight-Goff is reopening his recruitment.  The defensive end/outside linebacker from Louisville Doss said on Twitter that he wants to take more time before making a final decision.

I would like to gracefully thank University Of Kentucky for their efforts in recruiting me ??. University of Kentucky is a great school. I feel as if my commitment was rushed and not fully thought through and I want to make the best decision for my future. Therefore, I plan to research my decision a little further. I’m going to open my recruiting process back up as I continue my search for the college that is best fit for my career & most importantly, my education. Again, thank you Kentucky for your interest.

The move by the three-star pass-rusher does not come as a surprise.  His initial commitment was odd; he told Justin Rowland he committed to UK, but did not announce it publicly until much later.  Shortly after he made his decision, there were rumblings that it would not stick.

Knight-Goff is no longer committed, but Kentucky will still recruit the two-sport star from Louisville.  By the sounds of his announcement, Knight-Goff will listen to every word Vince Marrow and the Kentucky coaches have to say until he makes a final decision.

    I never understand why kids commit early.

    Football recruiting is so dumb

    This has become the rule rather than the exception.

    Good call son. Better decisions. Perhaps came down from on high. Or next move. Support.

    Decommitments happen every year, and they happen everywhere. Can’t take these kids too seriously until they sign on the dotted line. The object of football is to win games. Not to collect early commitments.

      Seriously. Do they even teach this word anymore? It truly is a sad commentary on society, when commitment means passing fancy, fascist means someone you disagree with and hoe is your date to the prom not a tool in the garage. Memo to parents: teach ur kids English, words matter, they’re the tools we communicate with, please God, use sharp ones. If u say ur committed look it up… does it sound like what u mean? And when we tackle language let’s come back for some character lessons. Act like your grandmother is watching. And stop with the Yahtzee for fake commits – it’s like the jackasses who celebrate a big hit on a 25 yard gain. Celebrate when u win. Yahtzee when they’ve signed their papers.

    Until you see them on the field… that’s when they are really committed

    Is this as frequent of an issue across the league or is it just us? I don’t mean for that to be sarcastic in any way – I sincerely would like to know.

    This is getting painful. UK football needs some stripper parties or something. The death penalty for our football program could be a blessing in disguise.

    It really wouldn’t be that upsetting if this website didn’t conduct itself the way it does. The add to the gravity of everything’s let down

    Until we win more than 7 games in a season, this will be the norm.
    Until we produce a dynamic offense that puts up points, this will be the norm.
    Until we are able to blow out lesser teams (i.e. EKU) as we should, this will be the norm.
    I’ll stop here.

    Sooooooo shocked! Every time I say something negative about these so called ‘commitments’ I catch hell on here. Well boys, here’s another one.

    Has he also announced he’s not committed to the weight room either? Wow. Can probably barely do a squat with a helmet on.

    This is the difference between a top program.and an average program, top teams over-recruit and run guys like him away at the last minute, our team just tries to get who we can, and hope we have enough to field a team, stoops needs to have 7 win season this yr. to keep momentum.

    It’s not “the difference between a top program.and an average program,” nor is it some kind of harbinger. Y’all are softer than these commitments.

    Top programs lost kids too and at the last minute. Yall must have been gettin the diapers changed or taking your naps and missed it. If you followed football recruiting at all you woukd know that

    Sooooft

    Seriously that simple. Just be happy no matter their decision and life is pretty easy.
