Shaedon Sharpe is no stranger to making jaw-dropping plays, and he added another to his highlight reel on Friday night.
Sharpe, the No. 1 overall player in the 2022 On100 rankings, caught a pass on the baseline in Dream City Christian’s game Friday night before taking one step and throwing down a monster dunk over the top of a defender. The score put Dream City up 29-18.
The 6-foot-5 Sharpe is Kentucky’s second of three commits in the 2022 recruiting class, picking the Wildcats over Oregon, Kansas, Arizona and others in early September. He joins four-star point guard Skyy Clark in Kentucky’s class and is the first No. 1 overall prospect Kentucky has landed since Anthony Davis in 2012. Five-star Chris Livingston (No. 4 overall) committed to the Wildcats a little more than a week after Sharpe did.
Playing for UPLAY Canada on the EYBL circuit this summer, Shaedon Sharpe averaged 22.6 points a game and shot 48.6 percent from the field.
He is reportedly considering graduating from Dream City Christian at the semester break and enrolling at Kentucky in time to practice with the Wildcats in January.
