Watch: Football player makes backflip catch
Sunday May 31st, 2015

Four-star recruit Nigel Knott became the latest athlete to give his recruitment a boost with a trick video this weekend, as he published video of him doing a flip off of a brick wall before catching a pass mid-air.

On Saturday, N.C. State commit Nyheim Hines shared a video of him doing a 720-degree corkscrew while catching a pass mid-air. UNLV basketball commit Derrick Jones then followed that with a clip of him dunking over four people—including 7-foot Stanford commit Josh Sharma.

Now there’s Knott, a four-star recruit by ranked as the No. 4 player from Mississippi in the 2016 recruiting class. Knott holds offers from several schools including Alabama, Cal, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss and Mississippi State, and just like Hines and Jones, he has further proof of his athleticism.
