Top ten prospect Kevin Knox cuts list to five

Kevin Knox is a top ten prospect in the Class of 2017, and he’s being recruited like it.

A 6-foot-7 small forward from Florida, Knox holds an offer from both Duke and Kentucky, and both of those schools made the top five as Knox cut his list on Friday night. Kansas, North Carolina and Florida State were the other three schools on Knox’s list.

Knox has the tools to be a terrific pro down the line. He’s got the length and athleticism to play the wing in the NBA, and his skill set and three point range are advanced enough to project a pretty high ceiling.
