Duke Is Trending For 5-Star SF Kevin Knox

Five-star small forward Kevin Knox has had an interesting recruitment. The son of a former Florida State wide receiver, Knox has been pursued not only by his father's alma mater but also by blue blood programs Duke, Kentucky and North Carolina.

Missouri has made a strong push for Knox recently, while North Carolina appeared to be surging ahead in his recruitment earlier this month. Now, the pendulum looks to be swinging back toward Duke.

Two new Knox-to-Duke predictions came in over the weekend in his 247Sports Crystal Ball. Here is where things stand as of now:

If Duke is able to land Knox, it would help the Blue Devils' national championship chances immensely, particularly if five-star point guard Trevon Duval also chooses the Blue Devils. Duke is also waiting on a decision from freshman point guard Frank Jackson, who entered the NBA Draft without an agent.

Knox's recruitment has been full of twists and turns, but he is supposed to commit somewhere in early May.
