(LEX 18) — Kentucky commit and one of the top-recruits in the 2020 class, Terrence Clarke, will stay committed to Kentucky after rumors circulated the internet that he would head to the G-League.
Clarke confirmed that on Wednesday morning:
BBN, don’t worry, my loyalty never changed. I’m here to stay. Can’t wait to get on campus and get to work and chase #9 with my brothers! 💙✊🏽 pic.twitter.com/64ONm7WzpS— Terrence Clarke (@terrenceclarke_) April 15, 2020
Reports made its rounds saying that Clarke would bypass Kentucky and sign a $500,000 contract with the NBA's Development League. The head recruiter for the G-Leauge is Rod Strickland, who was an assistant coach at Kentucky. Calipari weighed in as well:
I want to let the #BBN know I talked to @rod_strickland. I saw all the craziness out there last night. Rod worked for me, was a great assistant and is a great friend. I’m feeling really good about my team. #BBN, let’s focus on this great group we have for next season.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) April 15, 2020
