Terrence Clarke Rumors

The G League obviously identified Terrence Clarke as a fit for its new model. Some basketball insiders the Herald-Leader spoke with over the past few days were adamant that the league is leaving the door open for Clarke to change his mind and take the pro path. The lesson in this recruiting cycle — even if everything goes according to UK’s plan — is that the Kentucky coaching staff won’t be able to take anything for granted moving forward. Even if they get an early commitment from a top player, the Cats will have to stay on him and his family and remain wary of other, outside influences. If UK takes a lower-ranked recruit and that player has a breakthrough senior season, the G League could still come calling in the spring.
