Hillsborough’s Knott signs with Grambling

For the second time this month, a Hillsborough player has signed a National Letter of Intent with Grambling State University. The latest to ink with the Tigers is linebacker/fullback Jamie Knott, Hillsborough coach Earl Garcia said Thursday.
“I’m really happy for Jamie because he’s a solid player and a solid citizen,” Garcia said. “I think they (Grambling) have plans for him right away on special teams because he’s been one of my better long snappers here.”
Two weeks ago, Hillsborough offensive lineman Andre Gunn signed with Grambling and new head coach Doug Williams, a former star for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now it’s the 5-foot-10, 230-pound Knott. The common denominator for both Terriers standouts has been former Tampa Bay Tech coach C.C. Culpepper, who recently joined Williams’ staff as an assistant.
Knott has been a starter for Hillsborough since the middle of his freshman year. He has played on both sides of the ball and has been one of the team’s strongest players, benching 345 pounds. Knott was also considering Florida A&M, Bethune-Cookman and Webber.
