Meet the Wildcats: Whirlwind recruitment over, Knox ready for freshman campaign

The 2017-18 season is fast approaching, and head coach John Calipari’s latest top-ranked recruiting class features seven fresh new faces. Over the next several weeks, CoachCal.com will profile each of Kentucky’s newcomers in its annual and exclusive “Meet the Wildcats” series. Each story will be accompanied with an episode of the Behind Kentucky Basketball podcast, as well as a video of each player playing a game of Horse against either Kentucky basketball great Rex Chapman or Hollywood actor and Kentucky basketball superfan Josh Hopkins. The 2017-18 series continues with Kevin Knox, a 6-foot-9 forward who, after a whirlwind recruitment, is excited to be at Kentucky and show off his guard-like abilities.
