Sideline Video: Knox shows toughness

UGASports.com traveled over to Evans (Ga.) recently to see future Bulldog John Knox play. We shot this exclusive sideline video of Knox and he shows you a lot heart and toughness. He battled a sprained ankle all night, but still delivers a couple big hits and helps Statesboro beat Greenbrier.

Prospect: John Knox

High School: Statesboro (Statesboro, Ga)

Class: 2007 (Three-Star)

Position: Safety / Linebacker

Vitals: 6-2, 191-pounds, 4.7

Offers: Knox had offers from Auburn, South Carolina, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech, and others before picking Georgia.

Favorites: Solid commitment to Georgia

The Skinny: Knox is a very long athlete that plays safety and a little linebacker in high school. He is known for delivering big hits, but he can also cover, and he leaves his mark on special teams as well. Safety is his most natural position, but he could eventually grow into a linebacker. Knox is a fierce competitor and has a very good work ethic.

We traveled over to Greenbrier High School to film Knox in action and we put this video feature together.
