Skyy Clark is one of the top players in the 2022 recruiting class, which means he has only been allowed contact with college coaches since June 15th. And when he sat down with Corey Evans from Rivals recently, he talked about how hectic his first day as a recruitable athlete was.
“It was amazing, Clark said. “I got hit up by a whole bunch of coaches that I didn’t even think that I was going to get hit up by. It was a blessing.”
Clark has heard from just about every school that matters, and Kentucky has been one of the schools reaching out most often. Along with the Wildcats, Clark has heard the most from Gonzaga, North Carolina, Michigan, BYU, Florida State, Arizona, and DePaul. He talked to Rivals specifically about receiving a scholarship offer from Kentucky.
“That was a huge thing for me,” he said. “That is something that I have been dreaming about for a long time now since I started taking basketball seriously and it was just a great thing to see that my hard work is paying off.”
Clark is rumored to be a candidate for reclassification, but made it clear to Evans that all of the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus creates more uncertainty with his high school future. But what if the G-League comes calling? Well, Clark believes it is definitely an option.
“It is a great route for players and if they hit me up, I would definitely listen and see what they have to offer.”
Clark’s decisions for reclassification and which school he plays for could be a long way away. But a missed season of high school basketball could accelerate that timeline for him and many other high school athletes.
