In what can only be described as the most shocking news since the sun rising, Kentucky and Coach John Calipari snagged yet ANOTHER five-star recruit (their 6th(!) this year), as F Kevin Knox committed to BBN.

Knox surprised everyone, as he chose Kentucky over UNC, Duke, Missouri, and Florida State. Most predictions had him going to either North Carolina to replace Justin Jackson for the National Champion Tar Heels, or Duke to help their decimated front line. However, iIn the end, it was Coach Cal who swooped in and got the five-star talent, which, of course, caused Calipari to celebrate/almost kill himself on a hoverboard:

Knox will join P.J. Washington, Nick Richards, Jarred Vanderbilt, Quade Green, and possibly Hamidou Diallo, depending on if Diallo remains in this year’s upcoming NBA draft. Yeah, you could say that’s a stacked team. It will be curious to see if Knox finds diminished minutes on a team that seemingly has a lot of players at his position. Either way, BBN will be right in the mix for a national title yet again.
PS- How about @TiptonEdits_ with the edit? Tell us you don’t want to just go get your yearbook picture taken with the sweet 90’s glam background. Love it!
