One of the top recruits in the country just announced major news. Not only did Terrence Clarke reveal where he'll be playing college hoops, the five-star guard is reclassifying to the 2020 class.

It's not that surprising to hear that Clarke is reclassifying since it's been rumored for months. Nonetheless, it's a decision that should greatly impact recruiting rankings for 2020.

Boston College, Duke, Kentucky, Memphis, Texas Tech and UCLA were the top six schools on Clarke's list. All those programs present great situations, but it was the SEC powerhouse in Lexington that won the sweepstakes.

Clarke told Bleacher Report that he's committing to the Kentucky Wildcats.

"I will be reclassifying to the class of 2020 and attending the University of Kentucky," Clarke told B/R Hoops.

Here is his official announcement:

Clarke was ranked No. 3 overall in the 2021 class by 247Sports' composite rankings. Now, he's the No. 4 overall recruit and No. 1 shooting guard in the 2020 class.

Kentucky already had the No. 1 recruiting class for 2020 after landing a commitment from four-star forward Lance Ware. The addition of Clarke should keep that ranking firm for the next few months.

With Clarke's commitment now official, the Wildcats have four top recruits for next year. The rich get richer for Calipari and his program.
