Chicken Knowles for the Soul, Chicken Knowles for Louisville

Jody Demling has a great rundown of all the action from the second day of the NBA Top 100 Camp up on his blog right now. In it he mentions that T.J. Warren is among the camp's leading scorers, Gary Harris had a rough day, and Mitch McGary is impressing everyone. More important than any of that, however, is this little tidbit: there is a player at the camp whose name is Chicken Knowles.

This Saturday morning, June 18th, I, Mike Rutherford, wish to make the following known to all: If Louisville is only taking one player from the class of 2012, that player must be Chicken Knowles. And if Louisville is only taking two players from the class of 2012, those two players must be Chicken Knowles and whoever else Chicken Knowles wants to come with him.

My reasoning is two-fold. First, I think it's safe to say that the last Knowles to play here worked out pretty well for everyone involved. Is anyone going to disagree with that? No? Let's move on then. Second, his first name is Chicken. The mere thought of Rick Pitino/my dad screaming "CHICKEN!" in pure, unadulterated anger is reason alone to give the young man eight scholarships. Also, if you don't love chicken, then you need to get out of my face right now. I can count the number of days in the past year where I haven't had at least one meal that included chicken on Luke Skywalker's right nub.

And it's not like the kid can't play. Chicken (his God-given name is Danrad) is a versatile 6-10 power forward who has scholarship offers from Missouri, Baylor, and Arkansas, to name a few.

Check him out:


I've already found him on Twitter (@ChickenKnowles3), and he's pretty much Dickens compared to what I've seen from some of the nation's other top recruits. Basically, there's nothing not to love here.

Little Rick: Bring me Chicken Knowles.
