Brett Dawson of the Courier Journal reports:

University of Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight will remain in the NBA draft, he announced Friday morning, becoming the fifth one-and-done player in John Calipari’s two seasons as the Wildcats’ coach.

Knight said he “strongly considered” returning to UK for his sophomore season but ultimately couldn’t pass on the opportunity to be a top-10 pick in the June draft.

Knight joins last season’s four freshmen — John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe and Daniel Orton — in jumping to the NBA draft after one season at Kentucky.
