Lawrence Academy head coach Mike Taylor has confirmed that running back Anthony Knight, who verbally committed to North Carolina State last June, has decommitted from the Wolfpack and opened up his recruiting again.
Knight, the state's No. 13 prospect for the Class of 2011, helped lead the Spartans to a second straight Independent School League championship, is the cousin of former Boston College tailback Derrick Knight, the program's all-time leading rusher. Until he de-committed, Anthony was one of four Spartans to verbally commit for the Class of 2011, joining Marcus Grant, Mike Orloff and Max Ricci.
The story was first reported by the Boston Herald.
