Crenshaw High School senior Tyquan Knox will not be signing a letter on signing day like he once thought.
"It's real frustrating. Some things happened and I got a bad deal and things weren't like what people were saying," said Knox.
"Things didn't go like I had hoped."
Washington, Oregon, Arizona, and even San Jose State have stopped calling and did not offer the 3 star prospect.
"I kind of feel like I'm getting screwed," said Knox.
"I don't know what happened, schools just stopped calling."
Knox out played hotshot receiver prospect Jamere Holland of Taft in the season opener, but still did not get the hype of other top California prospects. That was a good sign for Fresno State, where Knox was supposed to have visited back on Jan. 6. Back in October, UCLA was his favorite, but the Bulldogs were still on his list of college choices. His quote's from last October:
"UCLA is still my leader. If they offered, I'd basically commit, but then I'd like to take some visits," he said.
"They are just a good school and I have a lot of boys up there."
"I got offered by Washington just recently and Arizona offered me a long time ago. Fresno State is going to offer me soon," said Knox.
"I'm still really waiting for UCLA to offer me."
Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Back in early November Knox had an off-field incident that sent him to Harbor City's Narbonne HS. He is back at Crenshaw, now, but he missed the remainder of the season, including the playoffs. What ever the incident may be it has scared off all suitors, including Pat Hill and Fresno State. If it is a legal matter, I know Fresno State's code of conduct will not allow Hill to even offer Knox a chance to walk on, but if not, Knox is the steal of the recruiting season. He is an excellent route runner with great speed. He also excelled at defensive back, and could play as true freshman. He is that talented.
Knox is a hard nosed player in the mold of a typical Hill recruit, but better. One reason hradarw under rader was because of all the hype surrounding teammate Darian Hagan Jr.
Hagan is the son of former Colorado All-American quarterback of the same name, and is one of the top recruits in the country.
Knox must now sit and wait. If no one offers before Fall, he will have to go the JC route. I say give the kid a chance, if his incident has nothing to do with the law. He already has the attitude Hill loves to recruit.
"People haven't seen the last of me. I've got a chip on my shoulder now. You have to have one. I'll make the schools who passed up on me realize what they miss."
