Knott has one official set

Madison (Miss.) Germantown DB Nigel Knott remains one of the most coveted athletes left on the board from the 2016 class. On Monday, he announced that before he makes a commitment, he'll take one official visit to the Pacific Northwest

Nigel Knott will officially visit Sept. 19. The four-star Madison (Miss.) Germantown product released the announcement on his Twitter feed on Monday that he'll be in attendance for the Ducks second home game of the season against Georgia State, along with a statement that he will try to take all of his official visits even with a decision date set just days after the Oregon visit on September 23.

This is obviously big news for the Ducks. Knott's father played for current secondary coach John Neal when Neal was coaching at Ole Miss and he has kept the Ducks in the mix since receiving his offer. At The Opening, Knott teamed with Ducks commits Dillon Mitchell, Jared Mayden and Vavae Malepeai and then-Duck commit Theo Howard in 7v7 play and also wowed onlookers by making it to the finals of the Nike Football Rating Championship and finishing second behind 2017 prospect Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Knott stands 5-foot-11, 174-pounds and is a great blend of speed and athleticism. He ran a 4.38 40-yard dash time at The Opening and had a 46.5" vertical jump, something he put on display while performing his signature backflip catch in between 7v7 games at the camp.

Knott can be a showman but drew rave reviews at the camp for his play and potential upside that he'll have at the collegiate level. He is a top four prospect at his position in the south region and is the 86th ranked prospect overall in the country according to Scout.

Knott will play in the Under Armour All American Game in January, but will miss most of September's playing schedule with a knee injury. He intends to be back on the field on September 25. In addition to Oregon, Knott is considering a number of programs, most notably Florida State, Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
