Bryant two-sport athlete Knox signs on with SAU Tech
BRYANT – Bryant senior dual-sport athlete Jordan Knox will be taking his baseball talents to the next level after signing with the SAU Tech Rockets (Camden) this past Wednesday in Bryant.
“Jordan has been an off and on four-year starter with a lot of promise coming in,” Bryant baseball Coach Travis Queck said. “We knew about his athleticism, which is freakish at times, but his skill set has developed over the past few years giving him a chance to move on to the next level. That’s a testament to Jordan.”
Also playing football for the five-time defending champion Hornets, Knox, who caught 11 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns as a senior receiver, will now be able to concentrate on just baseball in college.
“He may not have grown as fast as he would have liked, because he is a two-sport starter,” Queck started, “so that’s good for any college out there that sees him. They’ll have him full time so they’ll see what he can do. The skies the limit for Jordan.”
Knox earned All-conference honors last spring after leading the Hornets in runs (21) and stolen bases (14), while batting .322 with 13 RBIS and playing good defense in the outfield.
“Athletically you’re talking about a guy who can catch the ball alley to alley and get the ball in quickly,” Queck said. “Offensively, he’s a contact guy. If he hits one in the infield, and if it hops three times he’s safe at first, two times and it’s bang-bang. It puts a lot of pressure on the defense to be perfect.
“He’s definitely had a good spring leading up to the season. Not only a guy that gets on base, but a guy that impacts our offense in multiple ways. Jordan comes from a great family and is a great kid himself.”
