The Kentucky basketball program now knows it will host one of its most coveted recruiting targets this season on a weekend when it will play one of its biggest games.
Five-star forward Kevin Knox announced Thursday he had officially set four of his five official visits for the upcoming season.
Kentucky will host Kansas at Rupp Arena on Jan. 28 with Knox in the building to see two of his final five competing against each other. Kansas is the only one of Knox’s final five teams that he has not scheduled an official visit to campus.
