Clark 'Strongly Considering' Wake Forest

There are a handful of programs in need of a shooter and that's why Gary Clark has become such a commodity. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound shooting guard took his second official visit this past weekend, this time to Wake Forest.

The Demon Deacons are looking to take one more in the class of 2007 and Gary Clark looks to be one of the top prospects for that spot. Skip Prosser and his staff played host to the best available shooter over the weekend.

"It was really nice at Wake," Clark said of his visit. "They had a good win against Virginia. It definitely was a good trip."

"I met the [athletic director] and walked around campus. I met all the players, coaches and I ate with the coaches and the players. I got to know pretty much everybody there. It was nice."

Clark met with Skip Prosser over the weekend and Wake Forest's head man issued Clark a scholarship. "They did offer. It's just something I have to look at, but they offered a scholarship so they are definitely a big consideration. I'm definitely strongly considering Wake."

When asked which schools were still involved he listed Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Georgia and Illinois. Of the four schools involved he said two schools stood above the rest.

"I guess you could say Wake and Vandy because that's where I've been on visits," Clark said when asked about a leader.

Clark, who was once a Florida commit, took a visit to Vanderbilt two weeks ago and took in their win over the Gators. "That was lots of fun. They beat Florida that weekend and I got to see the campus."

Like most prospects, Clark has a long list of factors that will affect his final decision. Coaching style and overall feel are two aspects that will play a big role.

"I look at the style of the play and I want to see how intense they are in practice and the preparation they have before the game, stuff like that. I want to make sure its somewhere that I can fit in."

With two visits down, Clark still has a trio of official visits available. However he said he's uncertain whether he'll take any more visits. Clark hopes to have a decision by the end of the month.
