While we wait to hear where Shaquelle Evans is headed on Friday, the Notre Dame basketball team picked up a commitment Thursday in Maine center Tom Knight according to Rivals.com.
“I didn’t see myself there until a month ago. They came here and told me basically how the felt about me as a player and how I would fit into their program,” Knight said. “I got a feeling that they were looking out for my best interest and I really trusted coach Brey.”
Knight said the visit to South Bend was better than he expected and he felt like he connected with the current team.
Knight is a 6’8″, 240 lb center who carries a 3 star rating from both Scout and Rivals. Scouting reports suggest that Knight is an atheltic big man with a nice shooting touch for a player his size. That seems to fit right in with Mike Brey’s system. Pretty nice pickup for Brey. Now we just need to get Evans officially commitment to Weis and the football team on Friday.
