Kentucky is loading up for big things during the 2022-23 season after landing top recruit Shaedon Sharpe on Tuesday.
Sharpe confirmed his decision to ESPN's Jonathan Givony and announced his allegiance to the Wildcats on social media:
A standout at Dream City Christian High School in Glendale, Arizona, Sharpe has tremendous potential and now gets set to take the next step in his basketball life.
Sharpe is a 5-star shooting guard prospect, the No. 2 player at his position and the fourth-ranked player overall in the 2022 class, per 247Sports' composite rankings.
"At 6'4", Sharpe gets to the rim at will and has the athleticism (45-inch vertical leap) to finish with authority once he's there," Sports Illustrated's Jason Jordan wrote in Nov. 2020. "Sharpe can extend the defense with his perimeter jump shot and keeps them off balance with the addition of the efficient mid-range jump shot. He's a talented playmaker who makes strong reads out of ball-screens as well."
