Louisville signee Seth Dawkins has a former teammate - running back Brenden Knox - who has checked out the Cardinals twice

Columbus, Ohio, Franklin Heights High School running back Brenden Knox attended the spring game at the University of Louisville. Knox was teammates with 2016 U of L signee Seth Dawkins.

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.
