NBA Honours Former Kentucky Wildcat During First Round of Draft

Draft night is special.

It is special for countless families and many kids who get to realize their dreams in becoming NBA players and reaching the highest stage of basketball in the world.

This year’s draft night was also special for the family of former Kentucky Wildcat Terrence Clarke. The 19-year old prospect was expected to be selected in this year’s draft, but sadly passed away in a car accident earlier this year. In the middle of the first round, commissioner Adam Silver honoured the young man alongside his family on stage by calling his name.

“He was so ready for it, so excited,” his mother, Osmine, said in an interview with ESPN that aired after the selection was made. “It’s all he talked about, just going to the draft, like, ‘Mommy, am I ready for this? This is big.’ And I’m like, ‘Yes, Terrence, you wouldn’t be in this position if you didn’t, if people didn’t think you were this good.”

Clarke starred on the prep level in Boston before committing to Kentucky. In his lone season, Clarke averaged 9.6 points per game before his year was cut short due to a leg injury.

Congratulations to the entire Clarke family on Terrence’s selection in the 2021 NBA Draft.
