2022 guard Skyy Clark is someone Kentucky is already prioritizing, and he’s about to be playing high school ball a lot closer to Lexington.
According to Evan Daniels, Clark is leaving California and transferring to a high school in Tennessee.
Five-star 2022 guard Skyy Clark is transferring to Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy, his father Kenny Clark tells @247Sports. Former high school of Darius Garland and Brandan Wright. Clark currently has 15 high major scholarship offers.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) April 14, 2020
Clark previously played at Heritage Christian School in Los Angeles.
Rivals reporter Travis Graff adds that this is good news for Kentucky, while KSR’s Jack Pilgrim reports Clark is expected to get a scholarship offer from the Wildcats later this summer.
Kentucky visited Clark back in October, then hosted him for an unofficial visit in February. There’s also been talk he may reclassify into 2021, which would explain why Kentucky is already making Clark a major priority.
“It’s Kentucky, it’s one of the top, if not the top school in the country, just the fact that they are recruiting me at such a young age means a whole lot,” Clark told 247 Sports in February, adding that Kentucky was among the schools recruiting him the hardest.
And while it hasn’t always worked out with recruits who use the phrase ‘dream school,’ that is how Clark described what Kentucky and John Calipari bring to the table.
“Kentucky is like a dream school,” Clark told the Herald-Leader in October. “So we always talked about it and everything, but once it actually happened and Coach (Calipari) is sitting right there watching you work out — you can’t really explain the feeling.”
Of course, this move also means Kentucky will get more competition from the Tennessee Volunteers, who just offered Clark this week, but it sounds like the Wildcats are still in a great spot going into the summer.
