Elite 2021 five star shooting guard Terrence Clarke will be deciding where he will be attending college this Saturday, September 14th. Clarke is ranked as the third best player in the 2021 class and he’s a contender for the number one overall pick in the NBA draft. Signs are pointing to him committing to the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday and then later reclassifying to the class of 2020.
Penny Hardaway was going to make a last push for Clarke by getting the last visit with him but it appears as if Clarke shut him out:

Well isn’t that a shame. Penny established himself as a thorn in the side of John Calipari ever since he took the job as the head coach of the Memphis Tigers. Hardaway was able to convince James Wiseman and DJ Jefferies to spurn Kentucky for Memphis due to him being their AAU coach.
These battles aren’t over as Jalen Green, the number three recruit in the 2020 class, is likely down to Kentucky and Memphis with the Tigers being the leader at the moment.
Score this one for Calipari as he and Kenny Payne got the last visit with Clarke earlier this week.
