Sharpe is the biggest wildcard of the 2022 draft, as he’s never played in a college game, and won’t, if he suits up for John Calipari at all, until next season. He’s a mid-year enrollee at Kentucky and is practicing with the Wildcats. Considering his draft status, it’s likely he leaves Lexington at season’s end. But his draft eligibility with playing in college or a comparable professional landscape, like the G-League, makes his professional status murky.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard was the No. 3 overall prospect in the 2021 class according to the 247Sports Composite. Should he return to Kentucky, he’d likely be the consensus No. 1 pick for the 2023 NBA draft, especially in a system like the Wildcats, who have alumni across the NBA. He’ll likely be NBA bound after his case for draft eligibility is heard.
