Skyy Clark Decommits From Kentucky

Class of 2022 Point Guard and Kentucky commit, Skyy Clark, has just announced that he will be de-committing from the University of Kentucky and will reopen his recruitment.

Clark is a five-star recruit from Montverde, Florida, and is ranked the 5th best PG and the 27th best player nationally in the Class of 2022 according to 247 Sports. Besides Kentucky, Clark received numerous offers from highly touted universities such as Kansas, Arizona, UCLA, Michigan, North Carolina, and Ohio State and many others.

What does this mean for Kentucky's 2022 Class? John Calipari will more than likely be looking to hit the transfer portal hard again in search of another top backcourt option since highly talented guard options are extremely slim amongst Senior prospects. Both Grady and Mintz are out of NCAA eligibility after this season and it is expected that Tyty Washington will declare for the NBA draft.

There is also Shaedon Sharpe, Sharpe is eligible to enter the 2022 NBA Draft so we will have to wait and see what he chooses to do in that regard. Sahvir Wheeler could make a return for his Senior campaign alongside CJ Fredrick and Cason Wallace. If this feels like Deja Vu then you're not alone, the same thing happened last year when Nolan Hickman de-committed from Kentucky in April.

The Mcdonald's All-American would then sign with Gonzaga but Calipari didn't let that faze him because shortly after he signed both Tyty Washington and Sahvir Wheeler which in my opinion has worked out pretty well for Kentucky. All of this to say, does it suck losing Clark? Yes, it does. Clark is a phenomenal talent but every year it seems as though Calipari always finds a way and I trust that he will do it again.

Assuming Sahvir Wheeler returns (pretty much guaranteed), I’m trust what John Calipari will do with him and also the transfer portal this summer. Kentucky will be fine next season.
