According to a tweet posted to his Twitter account, five-star guard out of the class of 2022 and future Wildcat commit, Skyy Clark, has announced that he will not be continuing with the rest of his high school basketball season due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the ongoing pandemic. The 6-foot-3 combo guard noted that his brother, ZZ, an unranked guard out of the class of 2024, will also shut down his season. https://twitter.com/skyyclark/status/1355987319191449603
"I Would Like To Announce That My Brother ZZ And I Will Not Be Continuing The Remainder Of This HS Basketball Season Because Of Growing Concerns With This Coronavirus Pandemic That Threatens The World And More Specifically My Family. ZZ And I Would Like To Thank The Entire Coaching Staff At Ensworth HS For Helping Is Through these Tough Times By Providing Us A Safe Outlet To Play A Sport We Both Love. My Brother ZZ And I Will Be Working Out Diligently to Prepare For The Possibilities That Spring And Summer Basketball Have To Offer, And We Pray That The World Will Be In A Healthier Place So That MySelf, Brother And Peers Can Compete in Safe Environments All Around The Country. Thank You All For The Love And Support..SKYY CLARK"
Clark originally committed to the 'Cats back in October and there is a belief that he might still try to reclassify to the class of 2021. He currently attends Ensworth High School located in Nashville, TN. It feels worth noting that the governor of Tennessee, Bill Lee, recently lifted restrictions on indoor sports for the state, which had previously limited the number of fans that can attend public gatherings, including sporting events. https://twitter.com/MrsTylerKSR/status/1355989728407990272 According to 247 Sports, Clark is ranked as the No. 13 player in the class of 2022, the No. 2 overall combo guard, and the No. 2 overall player out of the state of Tennessee.
