Potential Top-5 Pick Shaedon Sharpe Can Apply For 2022 NBA Draft

Jan 20, 2022 2:51 PM

Shaedon Sharpe, who was ESPN's No. 1 prospect in the 2022 high school class before he joined the Kentucky Wildcats in early January, can apply for the 2022 NBA draft as an early-entry candidate.

Sharpe started the current school year at Dream City Christian in Phoenix, but he had sufficient credits to graduate from high school before the start of the NBA season in October. 

Sharpe is currently practicing with the Wildcats and is eligible to play, but he has not yet participated in any games, something that might change in the coming weeks depending on the inclination of John Calipari.

Sharpe is a potential top-5 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. Sharpe has yet to make his intentions known on whether he would return to Kentucky for the 22-23 season and declare for the 2023 draft.
