Terrence Clarke has passed away at the age of 19. Clarke left Kentucky for the 2021 NBA draft in March and had signed with Klutch Sports.
LAPD says Clarke was traveling at a high rate of speed when he ran a red light, hit another car turning left, and continued on to then hit a pole and block wall. Police say Clarke was not wearing his seatbelt properly.
The crash came following a workout with B.J. Boston. Clarke was the only person in the car.
Clarke entered his freshman season as a potential lottery pick and was ranked No. 2 in the most recent version of ESPN's top 100 prospects for the draft.
