Brandon Knight (PG/SG, 6’3″, 2010) is no longer considered an ACC prospect, having eliminated the Miami Hurricanes a couple of weeks ago, but that doesn’t mean he can’t affect the ACC in terms of recruiting.
The Florida Gators, one of Knight’s final schools, have pulled themselves out of the running and are no longer recruiting the star shooter, which means that even more signs are pointing towards Brandon ending up playing for the Kentucky Wildcats, although all bets are off.
But. it also means that Florida can focus more energy on Austin Rivers (PG/SG, 6’4″, 2010), a player who originally committed to the Florida Gators but has since visited Duke and says they are in the running. Don’t believe Rivers when he says he’s committed to the Gators; Duke is definitely in the mix and now that Florida is pulling off of Knight, expect the full court press from the Gators to finalize Rivers’ decision.
