LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The number one overall prospect in the class of 2022, according to ESPN, Rivals and other recruiting sites, has committed to the University of Kentucky.

Shaedon Sharpe chooses the Wildcats over Kansas, Oklahoma St., Arizona, and the G-League.

Sharpe is a native of Glendale, Az., but plays AAU ball for UPLAY-Canada.

The 6-foot-5, 185 pound guard joins Skyy Clark as Kentucky's two commits for the 2022-23 season. Talk about a possible lethal backcourt for the Cats next season. Both of them are top-15 prospects in the '22 class.

This is head coach John Calipari's first top overall recruit since he landed Skal Labissiere in 2015. Sharpe joins Labissiere, Anthony Davis, Nerlens Noel, and John Wall as the top overall prospects to commit to Kentucky since Calipari took over.
