Kevin Knowles is a 5’10 168 pound cornerback from Hollywood, FL.
The Class of 2021 prospect attends McArthur High School and has an 87 rating (high 3*) from the 247 Sports Composite List. The sites consider him the 510th best player in America (36th best CB and 76th best player in Florida).
Knowles holds offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Miami (FL), Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and others.
He was re-offered by the new Florida State Seminoles football staff in late February:

Knowles becomes the seventh commit in the 2021 class for the Seminoles. Knowles is not the first ’Nole from McArthur, as former Florida State and Pittsburgh Steeler Bryant McFadden attended the Hollywood school. Knowles has two sisters currently attending FSU, making this a true family affair.
Here’s a short excerpt from TN recruiting analyst, NoleThruandThru in the cornerback board write-up released Sunday:
Knowles has the speed you want in a cornerback. He can play on an island and is fluid in transition from jamming the wide receiver to covering downfield. He displays good ball-awareness, as well, keeping his eyes in the backfield while in coverage.
We’ll have a full scouting report on Knowles soon and, as always, be sure to check out Tomahawk Nation’s Recruiting Thread for more info on all FSU recruits.
