Skyy Clark, a combo-guard, is set to announce his college decision on October 22nd, 2020. According to 247Sports, Clark is a five star and the 14th overall prospect in the 2022 class, for now. I say for now because there is still speculation Clark may reclassify to the 2021 class.
Clark is 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and has been referred to by some as one of the most talented sophomore guards you will ever see. Clark is an elite shooter, handles the ball very well, thrives at getting to the paint, and can finish at the rim.
Clark played his freshman and sophomore seasons at Heritage Christian in Southern California. According to scorebooklive.com, as a sophomore Clark averaged 25.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 4.2 assists.
Clark’s four finalists are; North Carolina, Kentucky, Memphis, and UCLA.
It has been interesting to watch Clark’s recruitment unfold. Kentucky was considered the early favorite, and still is according to 247Sports crystal ball experts. However, Coach Roy Williams and the Tar Heels have certainly narrowed the gap. Although they are currently in different classes, multiple recruiting experts have closely linked the recruitment of Clark and Hunter Sallis, implying North Carolina will get one and Kentucky the other. If Clark reclassifies, I feel it becomes more likely one ends up at North Carolina and the other at Kentucky. As long as Clark stays in the 2022 class, we Tar Heel fans can dream of the Heels landing both.
