One of the most polarizing prospects in the draft has found his NBA home. With the 7th pick of the 2022 NBA Draft the Portland Trail Blazers have drafted electric guard Shaedon Sharpe from Kentucky.

Sharpe's path to the NBA has been a rollercoaster of emotions. After flying under the radar for most of his high school career, he became one of the most hyped prospects after his showing at Nike Elite Youth Basketball. He was the most-sought after prospect in high school, ranking first among all players.

Sharpe committed to the Kentucky Wildcats in January this year, enrolling a year early. However, in a stunning turn of events, the guard never suited up for the team, opting instead to train for the 2022 NBA draft despite not playing a single collegiate game.

Shaedon Sharpe's decision to not play in college (and his bizarre no-show during the NBA Draft Combine scrimmages) leaves a lot of questions about the guard. However, looking at his footage from his high school and AAU days, the talent is there for him. The 6'5 shooting guard impressed everyone with his scoring touch and three-point shooting.

As mentioned earlier, though, his lack of game experience at the college level makes him a huge question mark. Without any top-level footage to analyze, scouts have had a tough time predicting Sharpe's floor and ceiling in the NBA. He will surely be a big project for the Blazers moving forward.

The Blazers have taken a big risk in drafting the most mysterious player of the 2022 NBA draft. Can Shaedon Sharpe fulfill his high school destiny and be the star many envisioned him to be?
