Knight Breaks Down Visits, Focused On Six

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Brandon Knight didn't participate in the adidas Superstar Showcase this past weekend, but he stopped by to watch some of the local talent. While in the gym, Scout.com caught up with the highly regarded talent.

Brandon Knight is starting to dive into the recruiting process a little more.

After completing an impressive spring and summer, Knight is focusing on six schools – Connecticut, Kentucky, Miami, Florida, Syracuse and Kansas – and is in the midst of the official visit process.

"It's not as stressful as I thought it would be," Knight said of the recruiting process. "All of the coaches are all respectful. It's fun but you want to make the right decision that will put you in the best situation possible."

"I'm just trying to get through all my visits right now," he added. "I'm not trying to hold anybody up. Once I get through all my visits I'll make a decision. Also I might want to watch a few of the teams play during the season."

Thus far he's taken officials to Connecticut and Kentucky. He visited John Calipari and the Wildcats the weekend of September 19th and was able to spend some quality time with the team.

"It went good," Knight told Scout.com. "I got to be with the team a lot. I talked with coach Calipari a lot and got to see what he was about and that was nice."

Then the next weekend Knight, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound point guard, took a trip north to visit Jim Calhoun and the Connecticut Huskies. Knight, who is being recruited primarily by Pat Sellers, said he got the opportunity to get a better feel for Calhoun.

"It was a great visit," he said. "I got to hang out with the guys. Coach Calhoun doesn't do a lot of recruiting so you get to see what he's about more as a person and what he likes to do and what he likes to do with his players."

Word circulated that Knight would head to Kansas for midnight madness, but according to the Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Pine Crest standout it's a possibility, but as of now it's not on the docket.

With the November signing period rapidly approaching, Knight has a tough decision to make regarding signing early or waiting until the spring period. He's said that he may want to watch the schools during the season, but he's more waiting until he gets the right feel.

"I'm not sure," he responded when asked if he'd sign early or late. "Once I find the place that I know is the best place for me, there is no need to wait. I'm just trying to get through all my visits and then I'll go from there."
