The Kentucky Wildcats have a new scholarship offer out in the Class of 2022.
On Thursday, four-star shooting guard Shaedon Sharpe announced he’d picked up an offer from John Calipari’s program. He scored an offer from the Kansas Jayhawks earlier this week.

A 6-4, 175-pound native of Canada, Sharpe plays at Dream City Christian High School in Arizona. He’s ranked 42nd nationally by 247 Sports and 90th by Rivals. He played at Sunrise Christian in Kansas last season as a sophomore before transferring.
Other schools who’ve offered Sharpe include Alabama, Creighton, Oregon, Illinois and Xavier. There are currently no predictions for he’ll land at 247 Sports or Rivals.
Here’s a brief scouting report of Sharpe by Sports Illustrated’s Jason Jordan:
At 6-foot-4, Sharpe gets to the rim at-will and has the athleticism (45-inch vertical leap) to finish with authority once he’s there. Sharpe can extend the defense with his perimeter jump shot and keeps them off balance with the addition of the efficient mid-range jump shot. He’s a talented playmaker who makes strong reads out of ball-screens as well.
The only other uncommitted 2022 recruit that Kentucky is still in the mix for and has offered is five-star center Jalen Duren, so it makes sense that Calipari has finally offered another backcourt target. That’s even more true if 2022 combo guard Skyy Clark ultimately reclassifies into 2021.
