One thing that has always impressed when it comes to John Calipari and his time with Kentucky is the “dream” that he has created and associated with the University of Kentucky Basketball program.

As he is now in his 10th season at UK, Calipari has established this program as a dream school for so many young prospects in the country.

Now, Kentucky has always been a desirable spot, but we all know that when Coach Cal came on board, he took it to an entirely new level.

Skyy Clark, a 2022 recruit has expressed his interest in taking a visit to Kentucky. He’s currently ranked 18th in the 2022 class and he’s a very versatile combo guard.

According to Rivals analyst Corey Evans, Kentucky paid a visit to Clark on Wednesday, which was the second time he’s met with the Wildcats over the last month.

Over 25 schools have come to visit Clark in Los Angeles over the past few weeks, and one visit in particular stood out according to Clark’s father Kenny, reported by Herald Leader.

“We had Kentucky in a couple of weeks ago. That’s a dream come true right there,” Clark’s father told the Herald-Leader. “And it motivates him. Especially seeing Coach (Joel) Justus coming in, it motivated him to go even harder. It’s Kentucky, baby. That’s the cream of the crop right there. That was a special moment.”

Here’s what Clark had to say about the visit from Kentucky:

“Kentucky is like a dream school,” he said. “So we always talked about it and everything, but once it actually happened and Coach is sitting right there watching you work out — you can’t really explain the feeling.”

To hear the kind of impact that Kentucky has on some of these players really is amazing. For Clark to live across the country in Los Angeles and call Kentucky his dream school is a testament to what Cal has done with this program.

It’s also important to note that current Kentucky player and L.A. native Johnny Juzang is friends with Clark and stays in touch to this day. Clark’s father said that they talk every week or two and they have heard nothing but great things about Lexington from Juzang.

We will definitely keep an eye on that when it happens, but I wouldn’t expect a commitment from the talented guard until he at least reaches his junior year.
