A timeline of events between Shaedon Sharpe, his mentor, and Kentucky

Today was another confusing chapter in the story of Shaedon Sharpe and the University of Kentucky. This morning, Shams Charania, Kyle Tucker, and Jeff Borzello all reported that Sharpe was entering the 2022 NBA Draft and staying in, ending his short time as a Wildcat. Then, this afternoon, Sharpe released his own statement on social media saying that he is entering the draft but maintaining his eligibility as he gathers feedback from the league. Sharpe has until June 1 to withdraw his name if he wants to return to school. It feels like the writing is on the wall, but it also feels like we have another long month ahead of us — especially if the questions regarding Sharpe’s draft eligibility linger.
