  • Kevin Knox Visits North Carolina, Duke in One Day

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    After visiting Duke earlier Wednesday, Tampa (FL) Catholic small forward Kevin Knox and his teammates were at North Carolina on Wednesday night for the Monmouth game.

    “Roy, he’s been at my house the most,” Knox said of UNC coach Roy Williams at the City of Palms Classic. “He’s impressed me the most.”

    The 6-foot-8 Knox is considering Duke and North Carolina along with Florida State and Kentucky.

    On Tuesday night at the 2016 John Wall Holiday Invitational, Knox went for 38 points and 17 rebounds in Tampa Catholic’s win.

    They then checked out Duke’s facilities on Wednesday in advance of their next game in the invitational on Thursday.

    “I want to commit after the season,” Knox said last week at the City of Palms Classic, where Duke went three deep to watch him. “I want to slow everything down and just take my time with it.

    “Now that I’m down to four, I don’t get as many text messages and phone calls.”

    Knox Jr. said he planned to make an unofficial visit with all of his teammates to Florida State – when the Seminoles play the Tar Heels later this season.

    “Coach K calls me about once a week,” said Knox Jr. who also has had home visits from Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, Kentucky’s John Calipari and Florida State’s Leonard Hamilton.

    “I’m going to look at who’s going to help me get to the next level,” Knox Jr. said.
