All three of the highlighted mock drafts have Sharpe landing in the top-10 of the 2022 NBA Draft.

Sharpe was the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2022 class, reclassified into the 2021 class and enrolled at Kentucky instead of going to the NBA G League. He then sat out the entirety of his freshman season and made a somewhat surprising decision in declaring for the 2022 NBA Draft. Sharpe's draft stock is a bit of a mystery because of the lack of concrete tape on the prospect, but evaluators are in love with his high upside.
