Clark just starting process

Three-star prospect Gary Clark played very well at the John Lucas Midwest Invitational over the weekend.

At the John Lucas Midwest Invitational Gary Clark out of Clayton (NC) High School was one of the best players in attendance. A combo forward, Clark showed an improved skill level to go with solid strength and athleticism.

At 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds, Clark can do a lot of different things on the basketball court. He is a willing defender, and offensively has versatility. The focus for Clark has been to improve on his floor game on the perimeter.

"Right now I'm just working on developing my perimeter game a lot more," said Clark. "It's getting there little by little. I excel more in transition, but I love guarding bigs on defense."

Recruiting wise the 2014 prospect already has a handful of offers with several other schools picking up the recruitment.

"I have offers from UNCW, ECU, VCU, Ole Miss, and Ole Dominion," said Clark. "I'm getting heavily recruited by Wake Forest, Clemson, NC State, Florida State, Cincinnati and Xavier."

When asked which schools are recruiting him the hardest, Clark said Wake Forest, Clemson, and VCU were the three giving him the most attention at the moment.

Currently Clark is just in the beginning stages of his recruitment, and hasn't taken many visits to learn more about the schools involved in his recruiting. While he is just now beginning to gain information on schools, Clark does know one key thing that will help him choose an eventual destination.

"I just want someone that wants me and I'm not their last choice, being recruited from the beginning and really let me play my game," said Clark.

Currently Clark is a three-star prospects and is one of the top players in the state of North Carolina in the 2014 class.
