Kevin Knox took his final official visit to North Carolina this past weekend and will decide sometime in early April between UNC, Duke, Kentucky and Florida State, the alma mater of his parents.
His father, Kevin Knox Sr., said UNC and Florida State “need” his son, a 6-foot-9 wing scorer from Tampa (FL) Catholic, while Duke and Kentucky “want” him.
“When you dissect each roster, I can actually see where Florida State and North Carolina would absolutely, positively need a guy like Kevin in the role that he would fulfill,” Knox Sr. told Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader. “Whereas Kentucky, I think they might be all right. As well as Duke.”
As for North Carolina, which has yet to land a five-star recruit in 2017, they definitely “need” him.
