Clark talks visits

Wes Clark is taking in some high-major schools before issuing his decision.

Maybe no prospect burst onto the scene more in July that point guard Wes Clark. A star at Romulus (Mich.) High School, Clark exploded during the LeBron James Skills Academy and continued his strong play the rest of the month. Now he is in the middle of his visit process.

"Everything was great," said Clark of the summer. "I had a lot of opportunities that I took advantage of, and I think I made the best out of my talents."

Overall Clark feels that he showed everyone he is a true point guard, and someone who helped his team win.

"I think I played fairly well," Clark explained. "I got a lot of my teammates involved and made some big plays at big times."

When it comes to his recruitment, Clark says he remains in close contact with several schools.

"The main schools I am interested in are Missouri, Michigan State, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Dayton, and San Diego State," said Clark.

Clark's most recent visit was to Connecticut where he saw what the program has to offer and came away impressed.

"Man it was a great visit," said Clark of UConn. "When I walked in I felt like I was in an environment of winning. It just seemed like a good, comfortable place. I think that is a place that could get the best out of me as a player."

Also he recently made a visit to Pitt where the Panthers showed him what they have to offer.

"They were telling me how they have a senior point guard in Travon Woodall who is going to graduate and that I could come in and get a lot of minutes," he explained. "Also I liked the staff and the facilities were great there."

Now one more visit seems on the horizon.

"I am probably going to go to Missouri soon, but I am not sure of the exact date," said Clark.

Missouri appeals to Clark for multiple reasons, and he is anxious to see what they have to offer.

"I like they how they use their guards and they have a lot of senior guards so it is a place I could come in and make an impact," Clark said. "Also they play my style of play which is fast and getting the pace going. I feel that fits me well."

For now Clark says he has no favorites, and isn't sure of his timeline, but he does know at the end of the day what is going to put one school over the top for his commitment.

"The most important thing to me is my connection with the head coach," explained Clark. "Just whatever school I feel most comfortable with and that can help me move to the next level is the school I am going to choose."
