Point Guard Plans to Visit UCLA

Stevie Clark, the 5-10, athletic, sharp-shooting point guard from the 2013 class, could get re-classified and plans on visiting UCLA next week...

Stevie Clark, the 5-10 point guard from Oklahoma City (Okla.) Douglass, plans to visit UCLA early next week.

Clark is currently a high school junior and will be a senior next season. Currently ranked the #65-ranked player in then national class of 2013, Clark is exploring the option of graduating after this school year and enrolling in college this fall.

The potential move has been precipitated by his high school coach and long-time mentor, Terry Long, leaving Douglass. Clark's mother, Dorshell Clark, has indicated that her son would wait to see who Douglass hires as the new coach but, in the meantime, they have pursued getting Stevie re-classified to 2012. Clark is a good student, with reportedly a 4.0 GPA, and has enough, or is very close to having enough, credits to graduate after this school year.

Clark would need to be re-classified before he could take an official visit. We've heard that the Clarks are going through that process this week.

Dorshell Clark has indicated that many schools have showen interest in taking Clark if he were to re-classify. Schools that have been recruiting Clark are Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Florida State, Baylor and Missouri, among others, and we've heard that Kentucky has shown some interest.

Oklahoma, who might have been the leader for Clark, though, doesn't have a scholarship available.

The only program we've heard that Clark plans to visit at this time is UCLA, however. In fact, we've heard that UCLA has vaulted into a very good place with Clark.

Clark has a connection to UCLA. He has family in Los Angeles, his uncle being a songwriter/producer who is actually friends with UCLA assistant Korey McCray. In fact, McCray was friends with the uncle before he even knew about Clark.

Clark is considered a quick, athletic guard with a shooting range beyond the 3-point line. As a junior he averaged 25 points and 11 assists to lead Douglass to its third consecutive state championship.
