The Kentucky Wildcats will be getting an official visit from one of the nation’s top players in January.

That’s when five-star forward Kevin Knox will visit for the Kentucky Wildcats’ big matchup with the Kansas Jayhawks.

Knox will being his visit that Saturday, when UK plays host to KU in what should be a top-10 clash. The Tampa native will continue his visit through Monday, then take his next official to North Carolina the following weekend.

Florida State and Duke will get his first two visits, though the Blue Devils will get their’s in October. The rest will come in 2017.

For now, Duke is the perceived favorite for the 6-8 small forward from Tampa Catholic High School with FSU right behind them, but UK has and continues to make up a lot of ground in his recruitment.

I believe by the time Knox makes a decision sometime this spring, John Calipari will have UK right there in a close battle with Duke and FSU for his services.
