Days of Knight: How the General Changed My Life

Tennessee Knight Game

Looking back at what the recruiting process was like for me in high school, it’s amazing how close I came to not going to Indiana University to play basketball. To start with, I was about as close as you can get to never even being recruited by IU. Halfway through my junior year at Perry County High School in Tennessee, I was 6′9″ and 220 pounds. I was being recruited by Ohio State, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Purdue (all of whom would eventually offer scholarships by my senior year). Everyone knew Coach Knight’s recruiting focus at IU was usually on players from Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio, so I felt far off IU’s radar during the bulk of my high school playing days. My first encounter with Coach Knight really wasn’t one at all. The summer before my senior year, we were both at a team camp in Memphis called the Steamboat Shootout. Our “encounter” lasted about ten seconds; he walked right past me in the doorway of the gym where my high school team was getting ready to play—not past me going into the gym to watch our game, but going out of the gym after he had evaluated another player.
