Karron Clarke, a 6-5 wing who played at Miami as a freshman last season, picked Dave Leitao's program. "It was DePaul pretty much from the get go," Clarke said of his transfer destination. "I haven't really looked at any other schools. I knew them all through high school so we had a relationship before the whole thing started."
Clarke averaged 3 points and 10 minutes of action as a freshman in Coral Gables last season. He'll be joined in Chicago by New York native and lead guard Cliff Clinksdale.
The 6-1 Clinksdale did a tour this past season at Ocala Shores Christian in Florida. Clarke pointed out that Clinksdale's decision to attend DePaul was comforting.
"I didn't want to go there myself. I wasn't going to be there myself because Sammy Mejia is there but [Clinksdale] did factor into my decision because I played with him before when I was younger."
