Kentucky has already received a commitment from 2010 point guard, KC Miller; still the Wildcats haven't stopped pursuing other players at that position. Aside from Kentucky, Knight is hearing from several other schools. "I'm listening to everyone right now," said Knight. Knight is being heavily recruited by Florida, Kentucky, Duke, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Miami, Connecticut, and Florida State among other schools.

Knight is still in the early stages of his recruitment. He hasn't taken any unofficials at this time. "I have no clue when I want to make my decision," said Knight.

Brandon had an opportunity to play against high caliber competition all summer and that provided a chance for him to grow as a player. "I got to play against a lot of good competition. I got a chance to prove a lot of things. I like to get my teammates involved. I'm a good shooter and I can penetrate. I play well on both ends of the floor," he said. Still at 6-foot-3 and a thin 170 pounds, one point of growth is obvious. "I want to improve my physical stature," he said.

Last week Kentucky, along with several other schools, had a chance to come and see Knight work out in an open gym. "(UK) came down to my school this past week. They introduced themselves to me. I think I might like that program," he said.

Knight averaged 21 points and eight rebounds per game for Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale (Fl.) last season. He's currently rated the top point guard prospect and a five-star player according to Scout.com.
