Kentucky recruit Skyy Clark helped organize a cleanup effort in Nashville on Monday after taking part in the peaceful protests.

Clark transferred from Los Angeles to Brentwood Academy in Nashville, but he is originally form Minnesota. Minneapolis, to be exact, where the start of the George Floyd protests began.

Clark had around 50 people help cleanup the city with him, including one fan who thought he looked familiar. Clark was recognized by a lieutenant police officer, who just so happened to be a Kentucky Wildcats fan.

“I was shocked they knew who I was,” Clark said. “It was flattering. The officers hung out with us, brought us food, and talked shop for a while. It was exactly what this country needs ... I want to see change. I’m about peace, love and unity,” Clark told 247 Sports.

Clark is a 2022 recruit, so we have a bit before he is ready to make his college decision, but Kentucky and Joel Justus have been recruiting Clark just as hard as their 2021 recruits. Clark is the No. 1 combo guard in his class and was in attendance for Kentucky’s SEC-clinching win over Auburn in February.

There’s also been talk Calk could reclassify into 2021, but regardless of what class he’s in, he’s a major Kentucky target.

Clark currently holds just one crystal ball prediction as of now, but good news, it’s the Cats.
