Knox adds to Kentucky's top-ranked recruiting class. He is the sixth five-star prospect to commit to John Calipari's program in the 2017 class, joining P.J. Washington (No. 11), Nick Richards (No. 16), Jarred Vanderbilt (No. 18), Quade Green (No. 23) and Hamidou Diallo.
Calipari is not done in 2017 either.
Knox took official visits to all five of his finalists, including a trip back to Duke in October and visits to Florida State, Kentucky and North Carolina in January and February. Missouri jumped into the picture late, after Cuonzo Martin replaced Kim Anderson as coach and signed Michael Porter Jr., the nation's No. 1 prospect.
The Tigers hosted Knox for a visit in early April, and they picked up momentum after the trip. Knox then welcomed each of the five schools for in-home visits in recent weeks.
The No. 2 small forward in the 2017 class, Knox is a Tampa (Fla.) Catholic High School product. He averaged 28.5 points and 11.3 rebounds per game last season, leading his school to the state championship game.
Knox also averaged 19.6 points and 7.9 rebounds per game last spring and summer on the Nike EYBL circuit with the Each 1 Teach 1 AAU program. He was named a McDonald's All American and represented USA Basketball at the U17 World Championships and the U16 FIBA Americas Championships.
