Big East Schools High On Point Guard's List

Jason Clark has some interest from Big East schools ...

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- He was only a freshman last season, but 6-3 combo guard Jason Clark saw quite a few minutes at the point guard position for Bishop O'Connell H.S.

Fast forward to 2005-2006, and Clark has shifted his focus from distributor to scorer for Joe Wootten's Washington Catholic Athletic Conference program.

"He could play the point guard position or the two," Wootten explained. "He can score more when he's off the ball, so that's why we put him there a bit this season."

The long and lanky 170 pounder has a knack for scoring, as evidenced by his 17.8 point per game average this season. A number of high major programs have already expressed keen interest in Clark.

"He already has scholarship offers from Georgetown, Villanova, Maryland, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech," Wootten said. "I think he likes a smaller school setting, and because of that, I think he really likes Georgetown and Villanova right now."

Clark certainly will have plenty of time to think about colleges. His sophomore season ended in disappointment on Sunday with a loss to nationally ranked DeMatha Catholic H.S.

With the high school season now behind him, Clark will turn his attention to the AAU circuit this spring and summer. Wootten said he expects Clark to play in the 16 and under division with a local team known as the Prince William Pacers.

He's also been extended an invitation to the Reebok ABCD Camp in New Jersey this July. New York Insider will have coverage from a number of key spring events and the ABCD Camp, so keep it here for top coverage on players like Clark and other top prospects along the Eastern seaboard.
