Knight Taking His Time

One of the top players in the country is high on Kentucky. And with John Wall looking more and more like a pro each game, a point guard is likely a necessity for next season.

One of the top players in the country is high on Kentucky. And with John Wall looking more and more like a pro each game, a point guard is likely a necessity for next season.

Brandon Knight of Pinecrest School in Fort Lauderdale could the heir apparent to Wall in college basketball as the next great point guard.

"He's a pure point guard, all around," said David Beckerman, Knight's coach at Pinecrest. "He sees the floor. He's got tremendous vision. He's strong to the hoop. He's a good shooter from long-range," continued Beckerman.

But it's not just about what he can do on the offensive end. "He's got excellent lateral movement. He's an excellent defensive player," said Beckerman of the 6-foot-3 senior.

"I think he can probably can continue to work on his body to get stronger," Beckerman said. "I can see very few weaknesses in his game. He's just a pure point guard."

Knight, although highly regarded has continued to work on his game. "He's worked on his mid-range jumper. He's worked very hard on improving that. His leadership has continued to shine as well," Beckerman said.

Recently Knight narrowed his list to four schools, including Kentucky, Kansas, Florida and Connecticut. Whichever school lands Knight will be better instantly. "He'll be an impact player where ever he goes," said Beckerman.

So when is a decision likely? "I would say after the season, closer to signing day," Beckerman said.

Knight has already visited Kentucky, Kansas and Connecticut.
