McKnight was a local superstar during his prep days, known for his playmaking ability at powerhouse John Curtis Christian High School. The five-star recruit took his talents West to USC, where many dubbed him the next Reggie Bush for his ability to find the end zone out of the backfield.
His career with the Trojans under Pete Carroll was a star-crossed one however, with injuries and controversies playing a role in limiting his effectiveness. He finished his career with just 15 touchdowns over three years but did manage to get drafted by the New York Jets in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He bounced around the league for several years and recently played in the CFL in 2016.
Several of McKnight’s former teammates and friends shared the news on social media after learning of the tragic news.
