Sky Clark’s name has long been close to the top of the 2022 class rankings and has been a powerhouse target since high school began. He was the first in his class to return to Kentucky in October 2020 and signed a national purpose letter last November, making it clear that he would be the key to the future Wildcats March Madness pursuit.
That is no longer the case. On Sunday, Clark announced his commitment, saying he wanted to be released from the program so he could resume his appointment.
In the statement, Clark wrote that he would “use the next few weeks to reunite with my family to determine what is the best step forward.”

Five-star Montverde (Fla.) Is rated as the 27th player in the Point Guard, 247 Sports Composite, and in his position is one of only three of the fifth-best, top-50 players who are irresistible.
Clark has changed high school several times in his career. He played his first two seasons at Heritage Christian (Northridge, California), where he asserted himself as a star in his second year, averaging 25.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.5 steels per game. He then enrolled at Brentwood Academy (Nashville, Tenn.) Before transferring to neighboring Ensworth High School before the school year began. As a junior, he was unstoppable, averaging 28 points, seven assists and six rebounds, and was one of five underclassmen named to the SI All-American team. For his senior year, Clark moved to Montverde.
After seemingly settling in Kentucky, he’s taking the time to re-evaluate his options.
Despite losing to Clark, Kentucky still has 7-ranked Chris Livingston and 8-ranked Carson Wallace in the 2022 class. In addition, Shaden Sharp has been enlisted and has yet to announce whether he will go directly to the NBA Draft, for which he is eligible.
