"I just felt like me and Texas were growing apart," said Knox. "I didn't feel like it was for me anymore."
"It wasn't about feeling a certain way about another school," he added. "It was about not feeling close to the coaches at Texas anymore."

"I'm waiting for the summer to take visits," he stated. "I'll try to visit all those schools I am considering now."
