Actually, it already has been. He was named Florida's Mr. Basketball and won the Gatorade National Player of the Year for a second straight time. He's been named to All-America teams by Parade magazine and USA Today.
"The rest of us get more excited than he does," Foster laughed and said.
That's because the 6-3 guard is used to the spotlight. He averaged 31 points per game as a junior to put his name in the national spotlight and didn't back off this year. He's an accurate 3-point shooter and has the quickness and skills to also get in the lane to finish plays. He's unselfish — much like UK freshman John Wall — even though he had the ability to dominate games himself at times — much like Wall did.
Wall is leaving for the NBA and likely will be the No. 1 pick in the draft. Eric Bledsoe, UK's other starting guard last season, probably is going to do the same thing. That leaves DeAndre Liggins as UK's only guard with swingman Darius Miller also available to help if needed.
"Recruiting has been the same the last few weeks. He did come to a date to announce his decision on April 14 maybe on ESPN at our school to get that chapter taken care of," Foster said. "But he has not given any of us any real indications about where he is going.
"He would like for none of this to be a big deal, but he can't have it both ways. He's too good for it not to be a big deal. I don't think recruiting has bothered him and the rest of us probably get more questions about it than he does.
"I think his parents probably want to get it over with. They probably get hounded a lot. But we have a good support staff here to deflect that away from him so he can be a student and finish his senior year strong."
Foster says Knight and his parents have their own evaluation process and criteria to pick a school. "That is their decision and not ours," the assistant coach said. "I have sat in meetings with various college coaches and he does not say a lot. He just handles everything in stride. "He hasn't changed a bit since got here five years ago. He is just going about his business, working out every day and trying to make himself better. He didn't miss a beat when our season ended. The kid would live in the gym if he could."
