Knox is rated as a four-star prospect by Scout.com, and is ranked as the 43rd best player in the South by the network. His teammate, Houston is currently a one-star recruit, but that will change as the year goes on and more time to evaluate players is given.
"We got the same offers, and the same amount of letters, and we have known each other since third grade," said Knox. "Since we were getting the same offers, and since we both liked Georgia growing up we decided that we might as well go to the same school. We have been together almost our entire life. We wanted to play together."
Statesboro is one of the better high school football programs in Georgia, and Knox says that getting his commitment to Georgia out of the way will help them focus on this fall and the season in store.
"It allows me to get my mind focused, and to get with my teammates and be successful. I wanted to get it out of the way to get ready for my senior season," Knox said.
Knox said he will likely play linebacker at Georgia in 2007. The Bulldogs will lose two linebackers – Tony Taylor and Jarvis Jackson – after this fall, while Danny Verdun-Wheeler and Brandon Miller will be juniors in the fall.
"Georgia has been my dream. I have liked them since I was a kid," Knox admitted. "When I go up there I will have accomplished my dream."
