Skyy Clark is ready to be a Kentucky Wildcat.
The only commitment in UK’s 2022 recruiting class, many feared the five-star prospect would re-evaluate his recruitment once Joel Justus left Lexington to join Bobby Hurley’s staff at Arizona State. Even though his lead recruiter is no longer coaching for John Calipari, Clark told Sports Illustrated he’s quickly developed a close relationship with Orlando Antigua and Chin Coleman,
“There were some concerns when Coach Justus left,” said Clark. “But Coach Chin and Coach Orlando did an amazing job of just making me feel welcome and comfortable. I literally talk to Coach Chin every day. Those are my guys.”
Clark will get to speak candidly with each assistant in person next month. He plans on officially visiting Kentucky on June 11.
Until then, Clark is trying to recruit his future Montverde teammate, 6-foot-10 Jalen Duren, to Lexington. He’s also playing some hoops in the meantime. Over the weekend he had a casual 17 points and five assists at the CP3 Memorial Day Classic. A small sample of his best work from the weekend:
