Head Coach John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats have landed the commitment of 2022 top-five recruit and top three shooting guard Shaedon Sharpe. There are several recruitment ranking sites that have Sharpe as the number one overall recruit in the Class of 2022. He was a top priority for Kentucky and a clear-cut “one and done” prospect that will enter the 2023 NBA Draft. He committed to Kentucky over the Arizona Wildcats, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Kansas Jayhawks, and NBA G League.

ESPN no.1 Shaedon Sharpe to Kentucky.
Definitely has some Malik Monk and Jamal Murray in his game. A strong and explosive shooting guard! The 3rd no.1 prospect in John Calipari’s tenure at @KentuckyMBB. 12’ Nerlens Noel & 11’ Anthony Davis. @ShaedonSharpe pic.twitter.com/7lwlWApC6R

Shaedon Sharpe has an undeniable talent and with NIL in college basketball now it will be harder for players like him to say no to schools like Kentucky. While he did consider the NBA G League he ultimately went with John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats. He will be joining top 15 recruit and top two point guard Skyy Clark at Kentucky in the Fall of 2022. Those are the only two 2022 recruits committed to Kentucky, but they have their eyes on several more big names.

Sharpe is listed at 6’5″ and 185 pounds with the talent to match at the shooting guard position. His goal now is to join Kentucky and showcase why he belongs in the NBA. He should easily be a top lottery pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.
