Don’t count out a Skyy Clark reclassification just yet

His dad says things can change between now and the spring.

Especially since he moved from California to Nashville, 2022 point guard Skyy Clark going to Kentucky has gotten a lot of buzz. And throughout the summer, there was a lot of momentum that Clark could reclassify to 2021 and be a core piece to next year’s class.

On Saturday, it was reported that Clark had ruled out the possibility of reclassifying to the 2021 class and would be going to college in 2022. However, Clark’s father Kenny told Larry Vaught that staying in his current class is not a done deal.

“Things could change,” Kenny Clark told Vaught. “He may in April feel totally different but today he feels like he wants to stay in 2022. But there could be a lot of growth between now and April.”

Clark is listed as the No. 15 overall player and the No. 3 combo guard (although he insists he is a point guard) in the country, according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings. He is also one of only three players from 2022 to receive a scholarship offer from Kentucky.

As of now, the relationship between Kentucky and Clark’s family seems strong. If John Calipari really needs him to come in 2021, it will be interesting to see if that drives his decision or drives him away from playing his college basketball in Lexington.
