We’ve shared plenty of coverage of Daimion Collins, Bryce Hopkins, and TyTy Washington at the Iverson Classic, but another future Cat was in action this past weekend. Five-star 2022 guard Skyy Clark suited up for Mokan Elite at the KC Classic, his second event with the EYBL powerhouse this spring. 247 Sports analyst Travis Branham was in Kansas City for the games and tabbed Clark as one of the standout performers.

It was 247Sports first live game viewings of Skyy Clark since the start of the pandemic and he did not disappoint. The five-star Kentucky commit was outstanding as a playmaker and facilitator all weekend long all-the-while giving you some impressive scoring moments to remind you that he is more than capable of getting a bucket. Clark has built a long-standing reputation as a creative, skilled and crafty bucket getter but he possesses tremendous passing ability, vision and feel as well. Coupled with Clark’s ability to score and creatively get in the paint, he makes for a dynamic playmaker and facilitator as he draws attention from the defense and creates open opportunities for his teammates.

Clark, who played for Ensworth in Nashville last season, is considered the No. 10 prospect in the 2022 class in 247 Sports’ Composite rankings. He’s flirted with reclassifying throughout his high school career, but last month, confirmed he’ll be staying put in 2022. Joel Justus was his lead recruiter, but despite the staff changes, his father told Ben Roberts the plan is still for Clark to go to Kentucky.

More footage of Clark at the KC Classic will surely come out over the next few days, but here’s a small sample to tide you over.

    His hair may get called for an offensive foul

    I always find it interesting what recruiting guys get excited about. I was told by a pro scout that when he looks at a kid he gauges whether or not what the kid does projects to the next level. You don’t go behind your back between two defenders in college or the pros. Not being critical of Clark. I would have just picked another highlight.

    Time to fire up the KSR Hype Machine for the new crop!

    Skyy is not hype, the kid is the real deal. If you don’t like what ksr writes, don’t read, don’t follow ksr, and most importantly go be a fan for another team. Simple. Yes, he shouldn’t and can’t go behind the back in the next 2 levels, but he’ll learn that and get better. And sometimes, he will pull it off. Just has to be every time he does it, or he’s on the bench 1st TO, unless it’s a blowout or he has the green light to do so

    Tyler- why no recap on how Collins and Hopkins played in the Iverson game? I found a recap of the game by a Memphis newspaper and neither one of them were even mentioned. I assume they did really stand out?

    Going to be a very good one. BUT, I do agree with the one poster, those kind of dribbles in the two clips above, will be turnovers for run out dunks at the next level (college). Tighten the handles, protect the ball, take a little mustard of the hot dog. No JWILL or Chris Jackson (I am not looking up his Muslim name he changed to, he is Chris Jackson to me). Just make the easy play, no style points. Not harping on the kid, just cut out the showboating, well unless we are up 25+.

    This kid has a lot of Kyrie Irving in his game. I’m not a fan of Kyrie off the court, but he’s a wizard with the ball and an offensive machine!
