Baylor Basketball picked up their first commitment of the 2017 class, when San Antonio (TX) Judson HS PF Tristan Clark committed to the Bears.
Tristan is a great pickup for Scott Drew and the Bears. Clark came on the scene in 2014 when he took part in the John Lucas Midwest Invitiational. Scout.com's National Basketball Recruiting Analyst, Evan Daniels, wrote about Tristan, after seeing him in action.
Tristan is a very fluid athlete. He is 6'8 and can make a difference at both ends of the court. Clark can use his height and athletcism to atler shots and make a defensive presence, as well as being a key defender in the zone.
On the offensive side of the floor, Clark can run the floor, hit the mid-range jumper, and and make an impact on the offensive glass. All in all, Clark has a fluid game that should fit in well with the type of offense and defense that Scott Drew runs.
Clark is the first commitment for the class of 2017 for the Bears. Stay with BearsIllustrated as we bring you more on this breaking story and other Baylor Athletics recruiting news.
