Twitter reactions to Kentucky landing Shaedon Sharpe

Kentucky lands a commitment from the best player in the class over the G-League and many others.

As expected, Shaedon Sharpe has committed to the Kentucky Wildcats. He’s the first player since Nerlens Noel to pick Kentucky and be ranked No. 1 overall in his class in multiple recruiting services.

Sharpe had a historic rise in the rankings in 2021, going from ranked 90th in September of 2020, to No. 1 in September of 2021. A full calendar year.

Sharpe becomes the second domino to fall in the class of 2022, setting in motion what could be an absolutely monster class, something that Kentucky hasn’t seen in some time.

There’s a legitimate chance for the Wildcats to also land three top-10 prospects, something they haven’t achieved since the class of 2016.

The next player to pop is, scheduled, to be Chris Livingston, a consensus top-10 prospect and the No. 1 small forward. He will announce in October.

Next scheduled is Cason Wallace, the No. 1 combo guard in the class. He will announce in November, although that could be moved up.

Dereck Lively, who’s actually pushing Sharpe for the top spot and is currently No. 1 at 247 Sports, is also someone Kentucky is strongly in the mix for, if not the outright favorite.

Are the Wildcats starting to become the kings of the recruiting world again?
