Top-rated hoops recruit Brandon Knight picks Kentucky over KU

Brandon Knight,'s No. 1 overall player in the class of 2010, committed to Kentucky today, choosing the Wildcats over KU, Syracuse, Connecticut and Florida.

Knight, a point guard, was expected to choose Kentucky, following in the footsteps of one-and-done point guards Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans and John Wall.

KU is expected to garner a commitment from point guard Josh Selby, the No. 4 overall player in the class, on Saturday night when he makes his announcement in New York City at the Jordan Brand game. Another KU recruit, shooting guard Doron Lamb, the No. 21 player in the class, will announce at the same time as Selby.

KU has two scholarships to give.
