Knight, of Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Pine Crest, went first, committing to Kentucky in the afternoon. He said the tradition of playing at Kentucky - not to mention the tradition of playing point guard for head coach John Calipari - was too much to pass up.
"I just chose Kentucky just because I felt it was the place that had great players, great environment and just a place where I can elevate my game," he said. "There are great coaches and great players around me already. It just came down to, you know what I said before, being comfortable when I went on my visit and feeling that I can get better at Kentucky."
It's hard to imagine Knight getting too much better. The two-time Gatorade national Player of the Year, Knight is the all-time leading scorer in Broward County (Fla.) with 3,515 points. He led his school to two state titles.
Knight (6-3, 185) will replace John Wall at point guard for Kentucky.
Wall, who left after his freshman year, is expected to be the top player taken in this year's NBA draft.
But Knight also follows in the footsteps of Tyreke Evans and Derrick Rose, who played point guard for Calipari at Memphis.
