There was certainly cause for celebration in Lexington and across the Big Blue Nation on Thursday evening. Both the Kentucky basketball and football programs received promising commitments yesterday, starting with Skyy Clark committing to basketball head coach John Calipari and his staff.
Clark comes in no. 14-ranked player in next year’s class and the third-best combo guard among his peers. The Nashville native had long been connected to the Wildcats and on Thursday chose to go with Calipari over Memphis as well as a few other programs.
Joining Clark at the university will be Kentucky football commit Jamarius Dinkins. The strong defensive end joins football head coach Mark Stoops and the rest of the Kentucky program as a three-star strong defensive end. The Ohio native had several in-state offers, but couldn’t refuse coming to play in front of the Big Blue Nation.
It’s not every day the school’s two largest programs each land a quality recruit, but Thursday’s commitments called for a special celebration.

This will give you chills just thinking about basketball season.
The NFC East just keeps getting worse.
John Calipari is still smiling big this morning.
Apparently Wilson and Tom Brady see something in AB that we can’t.
Clark’s decision wasn’t the only firework show that came on Thursday.
A lot of players and/or teams probably feel the same way.
It’s going to be a fun ride this year.
Hard to argue against going with your gut.
