The Duel for Brandon Knight

One young man might be locked into the game to help him form a very big decision. His name is Brandon Knight.

When Syracuse battles Florida tonight on national television, we will all watch with vested interest. But one young man might be locked into the game to help him form a very big decision. His name is Brandon Knight.

He’s the best prep player in the country and the senior from Pine Crest High in Florida has both the Orange and Gators as two of his final choices.

Knight has hinted he’ll probably hold off on his decision until the spring. He is the reigning Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year – as a junior. Impressive? Yes. But even more so when the only two others in that company were Greg Oden and LeBron James.

Wow.

Knight is on track for another huge season in South Florida and his short list includes a who’s who of Final Four favorites: Kansas, Kentucky, UConn, Florida, Miami, and Syracuse.

Knight has picked up where he left off. Coming off a season where he averaged 31.8 points – Knight dropped 42 in his last game, to go along with 12 boards and 5 three-pointers in a blow out win.

Knight has done a number of interviews, but trust The Fizz to sort through the mess and find the best for you.

“I don’t really feel comfortable unless I’m trying to get better. Everybody tells me I need to rest a little bit but I’m really not a person that likes to rest much. I like to get the work in,” Knight told the Miami Herald.

In the same article we also learn B.K. (“The King,” perhaps?) is benching a cool 325 and has gained 10 pounds while playing at 6’4″, 190 lbs.

For the record, Brandon Triche is listed at 6’4″ 198 and is a year older.

Knight also has some interesting words about his drive and what he’s looking for in a school:

“A good relationship with the coach. I want a coach to tell me that I’m gonna have to work for everything – not that I’m just gonna come in and start. That and education.”

Rob Murphy told me last week that Syracuse can almost sell itself with a Hall of Fame coach, the Dome and the ‘Melo Center.

In this newspaper interview, Knight says he’ll miss one thing most about high school basketball:

“The atmosphere.”

In this Fizz public service announcement, we would like to remind all recruits that no other college basketball venue gets as loud or packed on any given (k)night as the Carrier Dome does.

Back to your regularly scheduled Fizz.

He hasn’t made an official visit to SU yet – but when he does, watch out.The Fizz will be sledding our way over to South Campus if we have to in order to get in on the action.

And a Syracuse win tonight might put another check next to The King’s Orange box.XX
