NCAA Basketball: Oregon at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

As Sean Miller continues to explore all his options for the 2017 recruiting class, he extended an offer to five-star wing Kevin Knox out of Riverview, FL. Knox just recently started focusing on basketball, after coming into high school as a top football recruit as an athlete or quarterback. His father played wide receiver at Florida State and was a 6th round pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, and his mother played volleyball at FSU. But he gave up football heading into his junior year to focus on basketball. "Every coach has told me I'm positionless," Knox told SB Nation. "They want me to play an all around type of game. I can play pretty much 1-5."
