Five-star shooting guard Terrence Clarke recently sat down with Prep Circuit’s Pat Lawless to discuss his recruitment and offers.

The No. 2 overall player in the class of 2021 is currently playing at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, where he talked about Kentucky and how they’re trying to get him to Lexington.

“With them knowing that I want to be there for six to seven months they want to develop me as much as they can,” Clarke said. “Player development is one of their main things for them and I can fit into their system.”

Clarke talked about developing into a versatile player, where he can play the one, two, or three. He described it as being “position-less,” a term John Calipari has coined in recent years.

The 6-7 guard went on discuss what he likes most about the Cats — notice the confidence that he’ll be a for sure one-and-done.

“With Coach Calipari having the number of players he’s had through the years, his message was straight on and that was to come in for six to seven months, get to work and try and win a championship. I just liked how real he was to me.”

There seems to be a similar sentiment in recruits as to how straightforward Cal usually is.

He continued by discussing the Kansas Jayhawks, UConn Huskies, and Duke Blue Devils. And he added how excited he is about Saturday being the first day colleges can contact him directly.

Clarke is definitely a name to keep an eye on. He’s John Calipari’s biggest priority in 2021, but he’s almost guaranteed to end up in the 2020 class.

Kentucky would take him in whatever class he ends up in, though. He’s been absolutely unstoppable of late, and the competition against the current 2020 players at the NBPA Top 100 Camp will give him more of an idea about where he’s at.

For now, sit back and enjoy these highlights.
