The Kentucky Wildcats have been heavily recruiting the 2022 class, and it looks like they are in a good position for some of the top players in the class.

Last week, John Calipari officially offered Skyy Clark, who is currently ranked as the No. 17 overall player in the class.

Later in the week, the five-star combo guard went on the Sources Say Podcast with Jack Pilgrim, where Clark announced that he was getting all of his academics taken care of so he can make the move to the 2021 class if that is the route he chooses.

The only other uncommitted player in the 2022 class that currently holds a scholarship offer from Kentucky is Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, who is ranked as the No. 6 player in the class.

Today, Rivals national analyst Corey Evans put in new FutureCast predictions for both Clark and Huntley-Hatfield in favor of Kentucky. Evans is one of the best in the business, so this is a really good sign for the Cats landing both five-star prospects.

Huntley-Hatfield, a 6-9 forward from Clarksville, Tennessee, is a player that is expected to be making the move from 2022 to the 2021 class, which would make this upcoming high school season his last. That’s likely a big reason why Kentucky has been recruiting him so hard.

Clark, a 6-2 combo guard who recently moved to Nashville, visited Lexington for the Kentucky-Auburn game near the end of last season. As is currently stands, Kentucky is viewed as the heavy favorite to land Clark. Whether that is for 2022 or 2021 remains to be seen.
