For Michael Jordan it was the tongue-wagging fade away jump shot, for Allen Iverson it was the ankle-breaking killer crossover and for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar it was the net-scorching sky hook; the recurring theme among all great players is great moves.

Every Monday during the football season we’ll scour the globe to check in with the country’s most elite players and have them spill the tea and break down on one of the many sure-fire juke moves they implement throughout the course of a game.

This week we caught up with Germantown (Madison, Miss.) wide receiver Nigel Knott, a four-star recruit who runs a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash.

THE MOVE: The Setup Speed Burst

THE EXECUTION: “What I do is, if there’s a defender creating a wall where I can’t get to the sideline, I step inward, which causes him to go in as well and then I break back out with my speed and leave him there. It’s basic, but the basic moves are the ones that are the most effective.”

THE SELL: “This works all the time for me. I’m fast.”

Here’s how Knott uses his speed to get it done.
