But the word inside the NBA is that the rule will go in. If it does, Earl Clark will have many opportunities to play with a high division one program. Clark, a 6-foot-8 point guard who will play this summer with Jimmy Salmon's Playaz Basketball Club of New Jersey, can dazzle you with his dribble and awe you with his ability to throw a sweet pass.
Clark, who has mentioned Kentucky as a school of interest, has had major Big East interest in his skills for the past year. Earl also attracted the colleges after he unloaded on Tyrell Biggs in an AAU matchup last summer.
Clark scored 37 points, including five three-pointers. Many high school and AAU coaches seemed to reach a conclusion that it was perhaps the best individual matchup of the tournament.
Clark was a big Hoya fan as a youngster. "I grew up liking Georgetown," he said. But Clark did state he is open in his recruiting process. Kentucky is likely to be a program that watches the Playaz quite a bit this spring and summer.
Earl is a quiet young man who doesn't appear to like to be showered with praise. He just wants to be able to improve his game and enjoy the competition side of the AAU events. Clark will be at another event this weekend and this site will have updates.
