LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Shaedon Sharpe, the top-ranked prospect in the Class of 2022, on Tuesday announced he will graduate high school early and enroll at UK during the second semester.

On his Twitter account, Sharpe, a 6-foot-5, 190-pound guard out of Glendale (AZ) Dream City Christian, said he will practice with the Wildcats and redshirt the remainder of this season, much like Hamidou Diallo did with UK in 2017,

Sharpe will turn 19 in May of 2022, however, he won’t be one year removed from his graduating high school class, making him ineligible for the 2022 NBA Draft. He says he plans to use the spring semester to make himself better by practicing with the current Kentucky team.

Sharpe is part of a monster 2022 class that has committed to play at UK.
