    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Skyy Clark, a five-star point guard in the Class of 2022, has transferred to Louisville, he announced on Thursday.

    The school made it official on April 12.

    “We’re fortunate to have an elite point guard in Skyy who’s very talented and gifted, but more importantly has the character needed to be a Louisville Cardinal,” Louisville head coach Kenny Payne said.

    “His ability to score, distribute and run a basketball team as a leader is what we need. In order to truly change a culture, you need guys that have the mental makeup on and off the court to do the right things, and he’s an example of one of the players that this community will love watching grow.”

    Clark played 13 games this season at Illinois, averaging 7.0 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, but took a leave from the program in early January for family reasons and never returned.

    He initially committed to Kentucky last spring, but decommitted and pledged to Illinois.

    He will be an important addition for Louisville coach Kenny Payne, whose team went 4-28 in his first season.

    “Today I am excited to announce my commitment to the University of Louisville,” Clark said on Twitter when he committed. “I am ready to play for Coach Kenny Payne and the city of Louisville. The time is now to chase my dream with Coach KP and staff but even bigger than that, the dream for Louisville Basketball!”
