Kentucky is the heavy favorite for 2021 five-star wing Terrence Clarke, who will announce his college decision Saturday at 1 p.m. Earlier this week, a report came out that Memphis head coach Penny Hardaway was going to visit Clarke today to make a last-minute pitch, but that is no longer the case.
ESPN’s Adam Finkelstein is reporting that Penny is not making the trip to Massachusetts to see Clarke, essentially conceding him to John Calipari.
Penny Hardaway is no longer expected to see ESPN 60 wing Terrence Clarke today as buzz continues to center around Kentucky and 2020 heading into Saturday’s announcement date.

Not only is Clarke expected to pick Kentucky, he’s expected to reclassify to 2020. Between his announcement on Saturday and four-star forward Lance Ware’s announcement tomorrow, Kentucky’s 2020 recruiting class is poised to take a big leap.
