A 6-foot combo guard, Clinkscales averaged over 19 points a game and led Dodge City CC in steals and was second in assists. In 30 starts, he shot over 41% from the field and 39% from three-point land.

When asked about what he thought of SMU's state of the art practice facility, Clinkscales responded, "It's pretty nice. They took me on a tour of the whole place and I really liked it. It was a great gym. I really liked SMU. It was pretty nice."

"Right now it's about 50/50. I'm looking for a school with a family environment. I'm not asking for too much. I'm not picky. I just want somewhere I feel like I belong," said Clinkscales.

Playing his high school basketball at Zion Benton (North of Chicago), Clinkscales was crucial his senior year in leading his team to a 33-4 record. They ended the season as the MaxPreps 5th ranked team in the state 145h team in the nation.

"I had some Division I interest, but what happened was, I was a late qualifier. A lot of D-1 schools were interested, but they didn't have any scholarships left for me when I got everything in order. That is why I went the junior college route at first."

Who player does Clinkscales compare his game to?

"I really just try to play. I like to be compared to players, but I never compare myself to another player. I'm just really trying to make a name for myself out there." will stay on the situation and let Pony fans know when Rodney Clinkscales makes a decision. Stay tuned!
