Brenden Knox is a bit under the radar in recruiting.
But the University of Louisville football staff knows all about the 6-foot, 200-pound running back from Columbus, Ohio, Franklin Heights High School after his sensational junior season.
Knox is the former teammate of 2016 U of L signee Seth Dawkins.
"Yeah, we grew up together," Knox said. "We're close."
Knox came to Louisville's Junior Day in February and last weekend was back at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium - with Dawkins - watching the Cardinals' spring game.
"It was a great atmosphere," Knox said. "I love the facilities and I love the coaches at Louisville."
Knox said Indiana, Ohio U., Michigan State and Old Dominion are other schools in the mix. As a junior, Knox carried 241 times for 1,713 yards and 18 touchdowns at Franklin Heights.
