"I committed to Ohio," Knight told JCFootball.com recently. "I went up there on an unofficial visit and met with the coaches. I really loved the campus and the program and where they have it going and felt like it was the best situation I could be in, so I committed to them.
"My family is all really excited and the coaches there just said they thought I made a good decision and they congratulated me. They said they can't wait for me to get up there."
Besides his visit to Ohio, Knight also visited Memphis and was getting interest from Mississippi as well.
"I liked those schools, but Ohio was the best situation for me," Knight said. "I'm coming off a broken clavicle and I'm not sure how big of a season I will have and Ohio stuck with me through things and I felt like their loyalty to me was something that I needed to honor."
Last season, Knight didn't make much of an impact as a receiver -- eight catches for 75 yards -- but his presence was definitely felt in the running game as the Bulldogs put up over 150 yards per game on the ground.
Knight will need to take one class in winter quarter in order to finish his AA degree so he plans to sign in February and will have three to play two once he arrives on campus.
