Although he hails from California, the 6-foot-2, 185 pound Clark is transferring from Heritage Christian in Northridge, Calif. to Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy for the 2020-2021 school year.
As s sophomore at Heritage Christian for the 2019-20 season, Clark averaged 24.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 2.5 steals per game while shooting 50 percent overall, 37 percent from three-point range and 84 percent from the free throw line
Clark helped lead Heritage Christian to a 26-5 record and a berth in the quarterfinals of the Division 2AA playoffs.
Rated a 5-star recruit in the class of 2022 by the 247Sports Composite, Clark comes in as the No. 18 player overall and the No. 1 combo guard in the class according to that service.
Clark’s profile page on 247Sports indicates that he has offers from Arizona, DePaul, Florida State, UCLA, Arizona State, Auburn, Kansas, Memphis, Michigan, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt and others. He committed to DePaul in the eighth grade but has since reversed that decision. Kentucky is also closely involved in Clark’s recruitment but has not yet offered.
There is at least some high level discussion that Clark could reclassify into the class of 2021 according to various reports.
Clark hails from an athletic family. His father Kenny was a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings from 2002 to 2004. Kenny’s cousin is longtime Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper.
