The first player in the 2022 recruiting class to get a scholarship offer from Kentucky was 6-2 point guard Skyy Clark.
He moved from California to Nashville recently and many recruiting analysts have already projected he will play his college basketball at Kentucky.
If you want to get a look at Clark, you can easily do it when he comes to Kentucky with Brentwood Academy to play in the King of the Bluegrass Dec. 17-22 at Fairdale High School in Louisville.
“That should be a really fun week of basketball,” said Kenny Clark, Skyy’s father.
You will also get to see Clark’s younger brother, ZZ, play. He is a 6-1, 170-pound freshman.
“He is really special, too. You are going to be hearing about him a lot more,” said Kenny Chandler, Skyy’s and ZZ’s father. “He already has four scholarship offers himself. We are not in this to rack up offers. We are in this to be great and both boys totally get that.”
The family is still getting used to the cross country move it made.
“We did not have any ties to Nashville,” said Kenny Clark, a former NFL player. “We just wanted a slower pace lifestyle. We loved Los Angeles. We felt God led us here.”
Kenny Clark and his wife, Sarah, have six children — the youngest is 5. Yet he said the move was “pretty easy” because of his children’s maturity.
“Nobody gave us any hassle. All the kids were on board with the move,” Kenny Clark said. “Even we were shocked at how easily it went. We drove across country in two cars, me and my wife. My wife’s mom also drove her car. So it was actually three cars on a 28-hour road trip that we spread out over 3 1/2 days. But Nashville has been great.”
