What do you get when a former Kentucky walk-on and a five-star Wildcat commit out in public?
Greatness, that’s what.
On Sunday evening, 2020 top-five prospect and Kentucky commitment Terrence Clarke hung out with former walk-on guard and fellow Bostonian Sam Malone at the Boston Celtics preseason game against the Charlotte Hornets.
“BBN, you’re not ready for this,” Malone said in the short clip on his Instagram story. “Best in Boston right here!”
“You already know it,” Clarke responded. “You already said it!”

Clarke, a 6-foot-7, 185-pound shooting guard out of Boston, is considered the nation’s No. 4 overall prospect according to Rivals.com and 247Sports. ESPN has him ranked No. 13 overall.
The five-star guard reclassified to the class of 2020 and committed to Kentucky on September 14, where he joined the likes of BJ Boston, Cam’Ron Fletcher, and Lance Ware in UK’s upcoming recruiting class.
Malone was a member of the Kentucky basketball team from 2011-2015, where he was a four-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll. During his final season in 2014-15, the 5-foot-11 guard played in a career-high eight games, including his first career start on Senior Day against Florida. As a walk-on, Malone logged minutes in two NCAA Tournament games, scored his only point of the season vs. Montana State and grabbed a career-high-tying two rebounds. He also recorded a rebound in the rout of No. 5 Kansas.
