Rated as the No. 1 basketball recruit for the class of 2022, Shaedon Sharpe left high school early and enrolled at the University of Kentucky for the spring semester. He is practicing but has yet to play for John Calipari’s Wildcats. Now comes reports that Sharpe will be eligible for the NBA Draft in 2022. Will Sharpe stay at UK and play next season, as was the original plan? Will he play this season? Will he enter the draft? And what kind of effect might this have on Kentucky’s recruiting moving forward? Lexington Herald-Leader sports columnist John Clay talked with Kentucky.com UK basketball recruiting reporter Ben Roberts about all those questions and more.
