    Shaedon Sharpe, the No. 6 overall prospect in the class of 2022, will now visit Arizona this weekend (Aug. 27), UPLAY Canada coach Dwayne Washington tells ZAGSBLOG.

    He was originally supposed to visit Kansas this weekend but that visit is now off. He will also visit Oklahoma State the weekend of Sept. 3. He visited Arizona and Kentucky unofficially in June.

    “It’s about really just taking my game to the next level,” Sharpe said recently. “Can they help me develop into the player I’m trying to become? I’m just trying to get better every game, every tournament.”

    The 6-foot-4, 175-pound shooting guard from Dream City (AZ) Christian, had been down to a final five of Kentucky, Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma State and the NBA G League Ignite, but Kansas is no longer in the mix.

    “Shaedon is a new up-and-coming riser,” Washington said. “He just wants to take his time and understand the landscape. College basketball has changed. When he’s telling you all that, he’s saying there’s so much information being brought and it’s just an evaluation process.”

    Sharpe broke down each option for ZAGSBLOG:

    Kentucky: “They really develop their players and get their players to the next level. They’re instrumental in getting their players to the NBA.”

    Arizona: “It’s the same thing. They’re great.”

    Kansas: “I talk to them here and there. I like the program and they’re in a good conference.”

    Oklahoma State: “I have a few calls here and there. I had some calls with them a couple weeks back.

    Of his skillset, he said:

    “I can do it all,” he said. “If you need a big guard, I can be that guy. I can dribble and finish at the rim, but I’ve got a midrange and three point game.”
