Kentucky will have three top-125 recruits in attendance this afternoon when the Wildcats take on the Auburn Tigers.
2021 wing David Jones – the No. 124 prospect in the 247Sports recruiting rankings – is in attendance with his family, along with two top-60 recruits in the class of 2022, Skyy Clark and Rodney Rice.
Clark, a major Kentucky target in the sophomore class, is considered a five-star, top-20 prospect in the nation out of Northridge, CA. 247Sports lists Clark as the No. 1 combo guard and No. 22 overall prospect in the class of 2022, though the expectation is that the five-star prospect ultimately winds up jumping into the top ten of the recruiting rankings.
Rice, a four-star guard out of Potomac, MD, is considered the No. 51 overall prospect in the 247Sports recruiting rankings and No. 56 in the composite.
KSR can confirm that all three have arrived on campus and are in the middle of their respective visits, the first for each of them to Lexington.
Here is Jones on his unofficial visit to Lexington with his family, with all of them decked out in Kentucky gear.

Prior to Kentucky’s game this afternoon against Auburn, Clark – who is joined by his father, mother, and two brothers – was getting shots up in the Joe Craft Center.

Kid is a tremendous ball player, but an even better person.

Clark, a strong Kentucky lean, joined KSR’s Sources Say Podcast a few weeks back to break down his interest in the Wildcats and why they were one of his favorite schools growing up.
