Thirteen days after announcing his commitment to the University of Kentucky, in-state football standout Shawnkel Knight-Goff has re-opened his recruitment.

Knight-Goff — a 6-foot-4, 210-pound defensive lineman from Doss High School in Louisville — is the No. 43 weakside defensive end in the class of 2019, according to the 247Sports rankings.

He announced Thursday night that he’s no longer committed to Kentucky.

“I would like to gracefully thank University Of Kentucky for their efforts in recruiting me,” he said on Twitter. “University of Kentucky is a great school. I feel as if my commitment was rushed and not fully thought through and I want to make the best decision for my future. Therefore, I plan to research my decision a little further. I’m going to open my recruiting process back up as I continue my search for the college that is best fit for my career & most importantly, my education. Again, thank you Kentucky for your interest.”
