Clark Emerges, Claims Four Offers

In this day and age, it's not often that talented prospects fly under the radar until their junior season, but that's exactly what Cameron Clark has done. The reputation of the 6-6 wing is strong in and around Dallas, Texas, and college coaches are taking a glance...

Buzz is building around Cameron Clark.

Nationally, his reputation is unknown, but in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Clark is highly touted. Metroplex Hoops, a site that covers the DFW area, even has him ranked higher than Perry Jones, T.J. Taylor and Phil Pressey, as the No. 1 prospect in the region.

"I'm trying to be ranked up there with the better players, but I just have to show people," Clark told Scout.com.

A standout at Sherman (Tex.) High, Clark averaged just over 22 points per game during his junior season, in which he was named to the Texas Association of Basketball coaches Class 4A all-state team.

"We lost in the fourth round," Clark said. "We did good I thought, but I think we could have gone farther and won state. I think I did pretty good being a leader on the court. Coach told me to be the leader, so that's what I tried to do."

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound wing describes himself as a "do-everything" type prospect. Area gurus concur, as he's known for his versatility, athleticism and ability to play a few different positions.

Although his reputation hasn't made it nationally, college coaches are familiar with Clark. Among the interested parties are Texas, Oklahoma, UCLA, Kansas, Arizona, Arizona State, Memphis, USC, Stanford and California.

"I'm just wide open to everybody," Clark said. "I'm just wide open. I still have a ways to go. I'm just playing it cool right now."

Oklahoma has had him up for an unofficial visit and offered him a scholarship, while Arizona State, USC and Kansas have communicated offers as well, according to Clark.

Clark hasn't made a decision on who he'll play AAU ball with this spring and summer, but he does have plans to travel the circuit.
