In what was something of a surprise, five-star small forward Kevin Knox committed to Kentucky Sunday night, picking the Cats over North Carolina, Duke, Missouri and Florida State.

The six-eight Knox is rated as the nation’s #2 small forward, according to, and the ninth-best player in the class. He joins Quade Green, Jarred Vanderbilt, PJ Washington, Nick Richards, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jemarl Baker in UK’s 2017 class.

Here’s an interview with Knox from KSTV in February.
