The Kentucky Wildcats streak of not getting top-five talent came to an end recently when the fourth-ranked prospect in the 2020 class Terrence Clarke committed to UK.
Clarke chose the Wildcats over Boston College, Duke, Memphis, Texas Tech and UCLA. The 6-7 shooting guard is a native of Boston, Massachusetts and currently attends the Brewster Academy which is a notorious basketball powerhouse located in New Hampshire.
Currently with Clarke, BJ Boston, Lance Ware and Cam’Ron Fletcher all committed, Kentucky has the top-ranked recruiting class for 2020.
This past week, Rivals named Clarke the commit of the week in their weekly McDonalds Nuggets recruiting update, which included some strong praise for the five-star guard.
Kentucky has wasted no time putting together a terrific 2020 recruiting class that currently ranks No. 1 overall. The most recent addition was Terrence Clarke, who has an argument for being the top prospect in all of high school basketball right now. He’s 6-foot-7 with a well-rounded overall game and he has a killer mindset like Kobe Bryant. He’s a sure-fire top 3 pick in the NBA Draft when he comes out in 2021, and he’ll dominate college basketball in the meantime. Enjoy him while you have him, Kentucky fans. He’ll be one of the best you have seen in John Calipari’s tenure.
Between the ‘sure-fire top 3 pick’ and ‘mindset like Kobe Bryant’ nuggets, the hype for Clarke continues to grow to the point he’ll be one of the most highly-anticipated recruits in the Coach Cal era. He has all the makings of a future NBA superstar who could help Kentucky not only make it to the Final Four, but also be a strong national title contender.
