Known in the state of Texas since he was just an 8th grader, Cameron Clark has been getting a lot more widespread recognition lately. Thanks to a strong spring on the grassroots basketball circuit, the 6-foot-6 wing from Sherman (Tex.) High has seen his stock skyrocket.
Playing for a loaded Team Texas team, Clark says that he and his teammates are just starting to hit their stride.
"We haven't had as much of a chance to play toghether," said Clark. "Everybody is just finally able to come to practice and stuff and we're starting to get better. We're trying to win every tournament we're in."
A long and athletic wing, Clark is more than just a high flying dunker. He can create shots off the dribble, shoots well from distance and is a more than capable rebounder. His exploits have drawn attention from some of the top programs in the country (most of the Big 12, Arizona, Arizona State, others) even if he's not giving a list out.
"Everybody, man, everybody has been calling me," said Clark when asked what colleges are most involved in his recruitment. "My phone is just blowing up. I can't even list them all."
Generally considered a prime target of Travis Ford's staff at Oklahoma State, Clark did admit that the Cowboys have been aggressive in his recruitment.
"Oklahoma State is really involved," Clark told Go Pokes. "Coach Ford just called my like three or four days ago. He had to go on a trip or something but wanted to make sure that I knew he wanted me at Oklahoma State."
Far from deciding on a top five, Clark mentioned that he may be tripping to both Oklahoma and Kansas for elite camps in June. He'll also stop at the NBPA Camp in Charlottesville, Va. before hitting up events in July with Team Texas. The plan is to trim his list after that.
"I'm just looking for a team that is going to let me go out there and do my thing," said Clark. "I want coaches who are going to get me better and better every day."
No longer an unknown, Clark will turn to those who have always believed in him when it comes time to make a decision.
"It's going to be me and my family and some of my coaches," said Clark. "We are just going to figure out what is best for me."
