Class of 2022 guard Skyy Clark has been considered a lock to Kentucky for quite some time, but North Carolina is making a push to spoil the party for John Calipari.
The 6-foot-3 guard picked up an offer from the Tar Heels last month and met with the North Carolina coaching staff via a Zoom call earlier this week.
Big Blue Nation began speculating that Kentucky could be losing momentum when the five-star talent tweeted, “I’m gonna shock the world.” However, Clark’s father, Kenny Clark, cleared up any speculation that Skyy’s tweet had anything to do with his decision.
“Literally all he meant was he is about to prove his doubters wrong,” Kenny Clark told Go Big Blue Country.
On Saturday, Rivals recruiting expert Corey Evans changed his future cast pick for Clark to North Carolina, one he previously logged for Kentucky.
While something led Evans to change his future cast to Roy Williams and the Tar Heels, the Rivals recruiting analyst still believes Kentucky is the team to beat.
Evans replied to a text from Go Big Blue Country Saturday saying, “Kentucky is still the team to beat, UNC is in it very much, though.”
When asked if Calipari and Kentucky need to lock Clark up sooner rather than later, Evans replied, “Definitely and needs to treat as such.”
