One of the biggest commitments in the 2017 college basketball recruiting cycle was revealed Saturday night via Twitter. Kevin Knox, a 6-foot-9 forward out of Tampa, finally ended the speculation. He'll be playing for John Calipari and Kentucky next season. It's a rare case of a five-star commitment coming out of the blue, as no one had any grasp on Knox's leanings before he made his choice public. Knox picks UK over Duke, North Carolina, Florida State (where his father played) and Missouri. Virtually nobody had any idea which school he would choose; Knox's recruitment was unusually close to the vest. He also sought little publicity for himself amid his recruitment process, and it's rare when that's the case with any McDonald's All-American.
