One of the top prospects in the 2022 recruiting class made a big announcement on Sunday.

Montverde Academy’s Skyy Clark, a 5-star PG who ranks as the No. 27 player in the 2022 class said on social media that he is de-committing from the Kentucky Wildcats and opening up his recruitment going forward. Clark, who is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 5 PG in the class, signed his letter of intent with UK back in November but asked to be released from that LOI on Sunday.

This is an interesting development since the Oregon Ducks have offered Clark and could potentially pursue him now that he is available once again. When he was in the midst of his recruitment, Clark named the Ducks in his top-8 and obviously liked that Dana Altman has going in Eugene.

Now, of course, there is the question of whether or not Clark would be a good fit with the 2022 Oregon Ducks. You are never going to turn down a 5-star player who wants to join your team, but it would be easy to understand Clark looking at the incoming 2022 class at Oregon and seeing too many cooks in the kitchen alongside 5-star Dior Johnson, the No. 4 PG in the class.

It’s a fair concern and we will see if it deters Clark in the end, but for now, we will wait and see if the Ducks show any more interest in the young 5-star now that he is once again on the market.
