Not anything against Knight but I imagine that with the academically minded top prospects the goal is more to receive a college education with a top coach. Not that it isn't a good education but they recognize that while college education is important it can be found at any college. With the non-academically minded they clearly don't even care about the college education as evidenced by their grades even with watered down schedules.
Regardless, this is a pointless discussion. Knight is likely a very smart kid but he probably won't finish his degree before he leaves UK anyway.
