Brandon Knight

6-3, PG, Kentucky

Brandon Knight is the second of what could be a long line of elite point guards to play for John Calipari at Kentucky; John Wall ran the show in 2009, and a third five-star floor general, Marquis Teague, arrives in 2011. Knight isn't a lock to go one-and-done like Wall, but big things are expected of the lanky Floridian, who led UK in scoring (at 25 points per game) with a 5-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio in an August exhibition tour of Canada.
