6-foot-2,160-pound right-hander throws his fastball 86-89. He projects to throw harder, due to his frame and loose arm action. His frame will hold weight as he is thin right now. Knight has shown a feel for his off speed pitches locating his breaking ball and change up for strikes.

4/18/18 - 6’/3170, Junior- Highly competitive, slender bodied righty with good pitchability. Already this season he has won matchups against Casey Mize (Auburn), Brady Singer (Florida), Ryan Rolison (Mississippi) and Sean Hjelle (Kentucky). He started this Thursday’s game on short rest (six days instead of seven) from the previous week. Removed from the game after four innings and 70 pitches. Was not injured, just didn’t have his best stuff as the shorter rest seemed to affect the crispness of his breaking pitches and the sustainability of his velocity. Based upon my past looks from previous seasons, Knight’s off speed pitches typically improve as the game progresses and his fastball velocity dips a little, but not to the extent seen Thursday. On this night with a 20-plus mph wind at his back, his first fastball of the game was 95 on my gun (96 on the scoreboard). His second was 94 and worked at 90-93 the remainder of the inning. In the fourth, he pitched at 87-90. With his fastball not at full strength, he mostly pitched off his slider. It can show plus, however on this night, it was more of an average pitch at 80-84 mph. Also throws a curveball and an occasional changeup. Curveball flashed average at 73-75 mph. Changeup 80-81. With his four-pitch arsenal, solid control and competitive nature, he profiles as a mid-to-back-end starter. As a highly regarded sophomore-eligible draft prospect last June, Knight opted to return to school and seek an even greater draft status this season. This time around he should be selected towards the back end of the first round or early in the supplemental round

2/22/18 - Got the win vs. Bucknell. Went  average outing stuff-wise for Knight. FB velocity ranged from 89-95, pitched at 90-91. His secondary offerings were all inconsistent. Competed real well. Sl hook in back. FB run/sink. ¾ slider action. Hits spots. Advanced pitchability. CH has fade 82, circle. SL 81. CB 74. 89-91 in 4th...sat a long time every time Razorbacks hit.
