      John Calipari was a little late in offering a scholarship to Knox, but that didn’t work against Kentucky, which picked up his commitment over fellow finalists Duke, North Carolina, Florida State and Missouri in early May.
      Knox, who averaged 28 points and 11 rebounds at Tampa Catholic (Fla.) as a senior, has greatly improved his outside shooting and should give the Wildcats a big perimeter threat next season.
      His commitment to UK was a surprise, as many had pegged Duke, UNC or even Florida State, where both of his parents went to school, as the favorites heading into the final days of his recruitment.
      I’ve decided to do what’s best for me, and I’m happy. Because in the end, that is all that matters,” Knox said when announcing his commitment.
