Kentucky has landed one of the top prospects in all of high school basketball, regardless of class.

This afternoon, 2021 top-three guard Terrence Clarke chose the Wildcats over Duke, Memphis, Boston College, UCLA, and Texas Tech, among numerous other offers.

According to Evan Daniels of 247Sports, Clarke will also officially reclassify to the class of 2020.

Clarke, a 6-foot-7, 185-pound shooting guard out of Boston, MA, is considered the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect (2021) according to Rivals.com. 247Sports also lists him at No. 4 in their latest 2020 rankings, while ESPN has him ranked No. 4 overall.

A freak athlete with a 6-foot-11 wingspan, Clarke is considered one of the best pure scorers in all of high school basketball. During the Nike EYBL regular season this late spring and early summer, the Boston, MA native averaged 17 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.1 steals per contest, also knocking down 34% of shots beyond the arc. Clarke also averaged 14.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.o assists, and 1.0 steals in five games at the 2019 Nike Peach Jam Finale.

Drawing comparisons to the likes of Tracy McGrady and DeMar DeRozan, Clarke is a capable shooter from deep, a crafty mid-range scorer, and a strong and athletic finisher at and around the rim, making him a truly dangerous scoring threat at all three levels of the floor. With impressive size and length, the 6-foot-7 prospect also projects as an elite two-way player at the college level and in the NBA.

Clarke becomes the second Kentucky commitment in the last three days alone, with 2020 four-star forward Lance Ware also joining the fold on Thursday afternoon.

Already ranked No. 1 in the 247Sports and Rivals team rankings, Clarke is expected to join top-ten guard BJ Boston, four-star forward Cam’Ron Fletcher, and Ware in the class of 2020.

Welcome home, Mr. Clarke.

    YESSSSSIRRRRR!!!!! I’m telling the rest of BBN, he is the mold of a Fox, KAT, AD, and Wall as far as elite, phenom potential! He is almost guaranteed to be a NBA All Star if everything holds up. This is a HUGE get to sit pretty at the top!!! Wooo what a great time to be a UK fan!! I’m so pumped. He’s my favorite HS player in some time along with Emoni Bates. Now let’s beat the Gators by 10 today, go on another 10 win season and win #9 and #10 and build a dynasty in both sports.
