Chicken Knowles goes national

The young man who ESPN now calls "one to watch" will be making his national television debut on ESPNU tonight at 7 p.m. when his Texas Pro AAU team takes on the Georgia Stars and Louisville recruit Alex Poythress.

"I'm looking at everyone that's interested and staying open," Knowles said. "I'm looking for the right fit and a program where they play an up-tempo style of basketball."

Lowe describes Knowles as quiet, until you get to know him.

"He has a great personality and a great love for the game," Lowe added.

Even though Knowles admits there's much he needs to work on, he's using his opportunity with Texas Pro to make a name for himself.

"I'm building a little bit of a reputation, not a big one but it's growing a little," Knowles added. "I just want to be known as someone that plays hard.

"And I'm always working to be better on the defensive side of the ball, especially as a rebounder and a shot-blocker. There are so many things I can do to improve."

Knowles' effort and desire to get better are what makes him attractive to coaches.

"I think he's a young man that learns quickly and wants to be better at every facet of his game," Lowe said. "Everything for Chicken is coming together and he's going to show it in college."

Great work ethic, great attitude, great upside, wants to come to Louisville, his name is Chicken; I don't see what the issue is. Jody Demling could probably tell you...right after he kills a puppy and tells your 3-year-old that Santa Claus isn't real.

This is your thread to talk about the game.

Don't forget your finger rolls.
