Tampa Catholic (Fla.) 5-star Kevin Knox cut his list to 10 schools on Saturday evening, with your Villanova Wildcats remaining in the mix for his signature.
Thank you to all teams that have recruited me. After difficult evaluations, here is my Top 10 ‼️ pic.twitter.com/H8YpsCowKh— Kev‼️ (@kevin_knox23) July 17, 2016
The cut likely doesn't mean all that much for Knox's recruitment -- he's been focused on four schools for a long time with Villanova only recently gaining a bit of traction. The Wildcats will need to get a visit out of Knox this fall/winter if they're to have any shot with him. Knox is likely a spring signee, having spoken about wanting to see which rosters have attrition and where playing time will available.
Duke has long been considered the favorite, but Knox is a Florida State legacy and the Seminoles have been landing elite talent recently. North Carolina and Kentucky are in the mix as well. Villanova spent time watching Knox at the Peach Jam recently, but it would be a surprise if Knox was wearing 'Nova blue and white when it's all said and done.
