Friday nights with Rotnei.
That's what the University of Arkansas has had the past two weekends as Verdigris (Okla.) guard Rotnei Clarke (6-1, 180) has taken in a pair of Razorback games.
This week he and UA commit Andre Clarke (6-10, 205) saw the Razorbacks rout West Florida 117-43 Friday night before 9,493 fans at Bud Walton Arena.
"It was a pretty good turnout for just an exhibition game and I was really impressed with it," Clarke said. "They scored a lot of points and you obviously have to be in shape to play that style. That is what I am used to."
Clarke wowed the crowd that lingered after the game by draining shot after shot as he was waiting for Arkansas head coach John Pelphrey to finish his press duties.
"I am going away from tonight knowing for sure that they play my style," Clarke said of the Razorbacks. "Just they way they penetrate and kick and get up and down the floor. That is the way I play in high school and the way I want to play in college."
Clarke has narrowed his decision down to Arkansas, Oklahoma State and ORU – where his dad Conley (who was with him Friday night) is an assistant coach.
"It's tough because the three schools are so similar in that I like the coaching staffs and everything," Clarke said. "The only thing about ORU is that smaller and I don't know about that."
Clarke, who averaged 37.2 points per game last season, is anxious to get his decision made.
"I am really trying and I want to cut it down to two before I do go ahead and make a choice," Clarke said. "It is just kind of tough to do it right now."
