2010 Kentucky commit Brandon Knight, says he “is comfortable the Coach will stay in Lexington” for the 2010-2011 season.

If you recall, Knight is the young man who started, what should turn out to be a standard for all top notch players coming into a College program, the signing of a financial aid agreement, versus a letter of intent. With the financial aid, it gives the student athlete the freedom of having the school committed to them, but they aren’t actually committed to the University.

This frees Brandon up to move to a different school anytime prior to the actual start of the school year, and would allow him to play basketball at the school of  his choice. So, if Coach Calipari decided to leave , Brandon isn’t locked into UK.

As speculation regarding the future of Kentucky coach John Calipari continues swirling, one Wildcat recruit says he’s confident the coach isn’t headed to the NBA.

Pine Crest’s Brandon Knight said Monday that he had recently spoken with Calipari and is comfortable the coach will stay in Lexington.

“He said he’s not leaving and that he’ll be there,” Knight said. “I’m not really worried.

“It’s a little bit weird to see all of this [in the news], but that’s part of basketball,” said Knight, who averaged 31.9 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists this season. “But if it happens, I’ll weigh my options.”
