View Full Profile said he already has talked to Clemson, NC State and Wake Forest since Davis' ouster Wednesday amidst an ongoing NCAA investigation. He said he'll also consider Tennessee, Louisville and Virginia.
"It's kind of unexpected but I'm going to roll with the punches right now," Knox said.
Knox said he heard from tight ends coach Allen Mogridge, who tried to give him as much information as possible.
"He was just saying that it caught them off guard and that it's bad timing but they're getting ready to make some big news and big changes right now," Knox said.
That could be key for Knox, who said he's still committed but will keep his options open. Knox said he'd like to see UNC hire a big-name coach and, more importantly, reassure commitments that Chapel Hill is still a wise destination.
"I'd like to see them really reassure that everything is going fine and that it's not going to affect the program as much because when Coach Davis got fired it was a big shock to everybody," Knox said.
