The Kentucky coaching staff remains on a complete recruiting rampage this spring. They are even positioning some if their efforts to the class of 2021.
According to Jake Weingarten of Stock Risers, UK was in to see five-star shooting guard Terrence Clark on Tuesday. Kentucky visited him back in December as well.
Clark plays at Brewster Academy in Boston, MA and is considered one of the best players in the entire country by both 247 Sports and ESPN. Both rank him as the third-best player in the entire class of 2021.
At 6-6, Clarke has terrific length for a player his age and his feel for the game really sets him a part from others. He can shoot the ball from deep and should do nothing but improve over the next few years.
Assuming he grows a few more inches, Clarke will have all of the tools to be a special player. At this point, it looks like whoever gets his commitment will have a centerpiece of their 2021 recruiting class.
It’s obviously very early in the sophomore’s recruitment but it’s good to see the Cats getting involved with Terrence Clarke this soon.
No one has ever questioned John Calipari’s effort when it comes to putting in the man hours to get players to join him Lexington. But the spring of 2019 has shown his complete commitment to getting the nation’s best to wear Kentucky blue.
Kentucky has already offered 2021 recruit Jonathan Kuminga, so perhaps Clarke could become the second recruit from this class to get an offer from Calipari.
