Now the deal is done.
Former North Little Rock and current Genesis One forward Andre Clark (6-10, 205) officially signed his letter of intent with the University of Arkansas basketball program late Sunday afternoon.
The left-hander had at first intended to sign on Thursday, but waited until some family could be on hand.
"I have signed and I am very happy about it," Clark said Sunday night.
Clark, who burst on the scene this summer while averaging 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Arkansas Hawks in AAU action, is the fourth 2008 signee for the Razorbacks so far.
He joins point guard Courtney Fortson (5-11, 175) of The Patterson (N.C.) School, Genesis One guard Terrance Joyner (6-2, 180) and New Orleans (La.) Holy Cross forward Brandon Moore (6-9, 215) as future UA players who have signed in the week-long Nov. 14-21 early signing period.
Genesis One assistant coach Audie Norris likes what he sees from Clark.
"Man, he is 6-10 and still growing, a big man with small forward skills," Norris said. "He can shoot the ball really well, is a lefty, runs the floor great, is a great shot blocker and very athletic."
Arkansas is also expecting to hear something very soon from Verdigris (Okla.) High guard Rotnei Clarke (6-1, 180) and Coffeyville (Kan.) Community
College small forward Daniel Payne (6-7, 210).
