With commitments just around the corner for Adem Bona and Cason Wallace, it looks like Kentucky will have a solid idea of who will be in their 2022 recruiting class by the end of the first week of November.
That’s because Joe Tipton of On3 reports that Shaedon Sharpe, Chris Livingston and Skyy Clark are all planning on signing with Kentucky during the early signing period that runs from November 10th until November 17th

Sharpe, the nation’s No. 1 overall recruit, committed to Kentucky back on September 7th. He’s since begun the early portion of his high school season at Dream City Christian in Glendale, Arizona. Sharpe’s signing could be different from the rest, though, because of the report that he may be enrolling at Kentucky a semester early before playing for the Wildcats next year.
Livingston, a top-10 recruit in the country, committed a week after Sharpe and has since started his final year of high school basketball, but at a different school as he transferred to Oak Hill Academy for his senior year. Livingston has been on campus twice since the summer. He made his initial visit back in June, committed in September, and returned at the beginning of October for another official as he’s been very high on Lexington and the love of Big Blue Nation since his decision.
Clark has easily been committed the longest as he’s been on board with Calipari for over a year. He’s been rehabbing an ACL injury that held him out for the summer circuit, but he’s looking to return at some point for his senior season at Montverde Academy before arriving at UK next year. Signing Day at Montverde is scheduled for November 10th.
If Bona and Wallace commit as currently scheduled, they’ll likely sign during the early period as well. The late signing period begins April 13th, 2022.
It’s been a strong recruiting stretch for the Kentucky staff, and now it’s time to get some of their recruits signed and sealed for next season.
