“Kevin came in as one of the youngest freshmen in the country and adapted as well as any player I have ever coached,” Kentucky coach John Calipari added in a statement. “He improved in every area of his game, became an efficient scorer like some of the best players I’ve coached here and could score all types of ways, including runners, pull-ups, 3-pointers, post-ups and in pick-and-roll offense. His defense and rebounding improved throughout the year, which is a big reason why we were able to go on a run at the end of the season.”

Knox is currently a projected top ten pick.

The 2018 NBA Draft will be held June 21 at the Barclays Center in New York.
