McKnight has clear favorite

Laurinburg, N.C., Scotland County defensive end Byron McKnight picked up his first scholarship offer of the recruiting process, and a decision could be on the horizon.

"South Carolina offered me, and I'm also interested in NC State and Virginia Tech," the 6-foot-4, 220-pound McKnight said. "I camped with all three of them this summer, and I like different things about all of them."

McKnight, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds, has South Carolina on top of his list.

"South Carolina is my favorite," he said. "I really like how coach (Brad) Lawing worked with me at their camp. I'm new to the defensive end position, so all the one-on-one work he did with me really helped me a lot. I also feel like I'm home when I'm there. I'll be going back next Saturday for one of their practices."

McKnight also enjoyed the Wolfpack and Hokie camps.
