Playing to an audience on Fox Sports West 2, Knox did his best to rally Crenshaw against Taft, and though the Cougars ultimately fell short, Knox walked away showing his worth.
Knox finished the day with seven catches for 118 yards and a touchdown and also returned a fumble 42 yards for a touchdown in the 35-34 loss to Taft.
"I just played the game and my confidence really took off. I'm upset we lost though, that's what matters," said Knox.
"It sounds like they want to see my transcripts so I'll have my coach get them to UCLA and hopefully that will help," said Knox, who is hoping to attend the Bruins game against Oklahoma on Saturday with fellow UCLA recruit and Crenshaw teammate Darian Hagan Jr.
"UCLA is still my leader. If they offered, I'd basically commit, but then I'd like to take some visits," said Knox. "They are just a good school and I have a lot of boys up there."
Knox spent one day during the summer at the UCLA Camp, participating for a short time before tweaking his calf. That came on the heels of an excellent performance at the Beyond 2000 Camp. He also was the top receiver at the Nike Camp at Stanford.
"They told me in the spring they wanted to watch some more film before they offer me," said Knox. "It's not putting any extra pressure on me though, I just try to play the same way whether it's for my team or for scouts."
During his junior year, he led Crenshaw in receiving with 64 catches 1,100 yards and 13 touchdowns in their City Section runner-up season.
Academically, Knox said he has a 2.8 GPA and took the SAT in June.
