Earl Clark "Derrick is a great player. He moves up the floor real good. Edgar is a great guard. It will be fun to play in the fast break with both of them. We can score a lot of points together. I would love the chance to set them up for baskets."

EC "I want to work on getting stronger in the next year before I play next season. I think adding weight and strength will help me when I go to the basket. I also want to be more consistent with my jumper. So I plan on working on that too this season."
RB What is it about Rick Pitino's offense that you like so much?
EC "What I really liked about the Louisville offense is Coach P's letting his guards create with the ball. He also plays a three guard offense. I know I can help them out right away by creating with the ball."
RB What position will you play in college?
EC "I think I can play a lot of positions on the college level. But Coach P really hasn't spoken to me about any one position. He feels I can help them out anywhere. And I don't care where I play. I just want to have a chance to earn a lot of playing time. Coach P said I would get that chance."
