The 2022 recruiting class is starting to heat up with some serious talent.

One of those players is Skyy Clark. Originally from California, Clark just moved to Tennessee where he attends Brentwood Academy and is entering his junior season.

The 6-2 combo guard can do it all. He’s currently ranked 22nd overall in 247’s Composite ranking.

And as of right now, 247’s Crystal Ball has one prediction for Kentucky.

Clark, like many other young athletes, has started his own blog on Sports Illustrated. In his first blog he talks about his move to Tennessee and how his recruitment has played out to this point.

“When I found out that I was going to be moving this way, I hit up my boy Darius Garland and he was telling me about Brentwood Academy and why it would be a good fit for me.”

Darius Garland is a talented rookie for the Cleveland Cavaliers who also attended Brentwood.

“I know everything is paused right now,” Garland said. “But I’m happy that I’m still able to get in two and three workouts a day. Nothing has really changed for me there, so that’s been good.”

“The coaches can’t contact me directly until June 15, but my coach tells me about the schools that keep in touch and that’s Ohio State, Kentucky, Memphis, Arizona, Michigan, Gonzaga, Indiana and a bunch of other schools reach out regularly.”

When Cal and company get involved early, you know it’s a player they really want. Clark is a lethal guard that can shoot it from the outside but thrives on drives to the paint.

Kentucky has had many talented point guards come through the program, but Clark seems confident that he can fit anywhere and thrive.

“At the next level, I see myself as a point guard but can play both positions, depending on what is needed. I think I’m at my best with the ball in my hand creating for myself and others. People tend to focus on my scoring a lot, but my passing ability is up there with my scoring too. I’m hoping more people will notice that next season.”

It’s still super early in the recruitment, but Clark would be a great get for Kentucky. Expect Calipari and company to continue pursuing this talented guard out of Nashville.
