Big Blue Madness is the premiere recruiting weekend for Kentucky Wildcats basketball year in and year out. This year will be no different as there are multiple high-profile recruits expected on campus Friday night.
We can now add a couple more confirmed visitors to the list.
Travis Branham of 247 Sports reports that Class of 2022 commit Skyy Clark would take an official visit to Lexington this weekend for Madness.

Clark will be using his second official visit allowed due to COVID-19 shutting down all visits last season.
Recovering from a knee injury suffered earlier this year, Clark is ahead of schedule and is preparing to play this winter. He transferred to Montverde Academy for his senior season earlier this spring.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Clark is currently listed as the 17th-ranked player in the country, according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings.
It was also reported by Jake Weingarten that Class of 2023 recruit Cyr Malonga will take an unofficial visit this weekend. He will be on campus after he finishes up a trip to Memphis for their midnight madness event.

The 6-foot-11 prospect is originally from the Republic of Congo and now plays his high school basketball at Evangel Christian School in Louisville. Kentucky’s interest has picked up over the last several months for Malonga, and getting him on campus should only continue that trend.
Alongside the interest from Kentucky, Duke is the other blue-blood program to jump in on his recruitment in the early stages. He holds offers from Georgetown, Georgia, Illinois, Mississippi State, and Texas.
Malonga is currently ranked as a 3-star recruit and is listed as the No. 159 player in the country.
