Clarke makes his pick
There was a lot of intrigue heading into the decision of Virginia Beach (Va.) Cape Henry standout wing Chris Clarke. All four of his finalists, Creighton, Virginia Tech, Connecticut, and Tennessee all were seen as viable options, but at the end of the day Clarke announced his intention to intend Tennessee on Thursday afternoon. By landing Clarke the Volunteers got one of the hardest playing kids in the country. The 6-foot-5 and 195 pound Clarke doesn’t fit the mold of a traditional wing since most of his points come close to the rim, but he is extremely effective and always finds a way to produce. Over the summer Clarke attracted significant high-major interest with his ability to rebound, defend, and attack the rim with his elite athleticism. Now Clarke will be bringing that high motor style of play to the college level. Head Coach Donnie Tyndall made Clarke a priority all summer long, and in the end that hard work paid off in the form of a commitment. Tennessee had a great official visit with Clarke in October, and that momentum never seemed to go away as the four-star prospect will make his way to Knoxville for college. Clarke is now the third commitment for the Volunteers in the class of 2014. He joins fellow small forward Admiral Schofield and shooting guard Shembari Phillips in Tyndall’s first true recruiting class.
