Shaedon Sharpe, the No. 6 overall prospect in the class of 2022, has cut his list to five schools and plans to make his college decision in late August, he tells ZAGSBLOG.
“It’s about really just taking my game to the next level,” Sharpe said. “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 and the UPLAY Canada AAU Program, is down to a final five of Kentucky, Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma State and the NBA G League Ignite.
“Shaedon is a new up-and-coming riser,” UPLAY Canada coach Dwayne 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.
Sharpe has taken visits to Kentucky and Arizona.
“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.”
