VIDEO: Nigel Knott's off-the-wall backflip catch might be the best we've seen yet

By

So much for Nyheim Hynes winning the one-handed backflip catch of the offseason award. Less than a day after Hines’ video went viral, the NC State signee’s highlight sure seemed to be one-upped by the grab you see above by Nigel Knott.

Knott is a four-star wide receiver for Germantown High School in Madison, Miss. He’s considered one of the top 10 cornerback prospects in the nation by 247 Sports, and he certainly showcased his athleticism and raw agility by running up a wall before pulling in a wild, backflipping catch.

Wherever Knott ends up playing collegiately, they’ll know they’re getting a hell of an athlete. And the early summer got another truly tremendous practice session highlight, an upgraded take on what we’ve already seen from both Hines and the likes of Marco Wilson.

Bravo, Mr. Knott. Bravo.
