Clarke Emerging As A Prospect

Brooklyn (NY) Lincoln small forward Elijah Clarke is having himself a dandy year. The 6-5 Clarke already has two offers from Big East programs.

Boston College, ‘Cuse Offer

Elijah Clarke is having a nice season for Lincoln. He's putting in 19 a night and Lincoln is 14-3 and 11-0 in its conference.

So far, Syracuse, Boston College, Pittsburgh and UConn have been in to see him. "That's what I remember, right there," Clarke said. "When we went to South Carolina, there were more schools." Clarke recalls Memphis, Wake Forest and Maryland in the stands at Myrtle Beach. He's interested in the Terps and the Tar Heels as well.

Last summer, Clarke hooped for Team Reef, an AAU program sponsored by Shariff-Abdur Rahim. He'll play with them again this year and will also attend adidas Camp. He'll do it with an improved game, especially on the perimeter.

"I would say rebounding and my jumpshot," Clarke answered when asked what are the biggest improvements in his game.

So, who leads for him? "Right now, it's too early. But most likely it's going to be the Big East or ACC."
