Five-star 2022 point guard Skyy Clark has trimmed his list of schools down to eight with the Michigan Wolverines included, he announced on Twitter on Friday afternoon. Joining Michigan is Tennessee State, Memphis, North Carolina, Kentucky, UCLA, Oregon and USC.
Most experts believe that Clark, the nation’s No. 15 overall player and third-ranked combo guard, is eventually bound for Kentucky. The Brentwood, Tennessee native has all four Crystal Ball picks on 247Sports sending him to the Wildcats.
“I have decided to cut my recruitment down to my final 8 schools which I feel will help me best attain my goals on and off the court,” Clark said on Twitter. “Some very hard decisions had to be made but here is my final 8 right now.”
First and foremost I want to thank each and every school that has been involved in my recruitment, I’m truly blessed to be looked at in such high regard for my basketball talents. Thank you for your time and energy. pic.twitter.com/2kKRywiu8a— Skyy Clark (@skyyclark) August 7, 2020
Michigan is set to turn over its roster in a big way over the next two recruiting classes with as many as six to seven spots open in 2021 and five spots open in the 2022 class as of this posting. Head coach Juwan Howard signed the No. 15 recruiting class in the country in 2020, which was good for the top spot in the Big Ten. The Wolverines currently have three commitments in the 2021 cycle and grade out as the No. 7 class in the nation.
