Prime 2021 prospect planning one other go to to Indiana?
One of the best prospects in the country in the 2021 class is to visit Bloomington again as the Indiana basketball program is one of many applicants.
Terrence Clarke is one of the best players in the 2021 class and could even be one of the best players in any high school class right now.
Clarke is number 2 in the 2021 class on the 247Sports composite rankings and has many offers from top programs.
In the mix with Indiana are Kentucky, UConn, Memphis, Providence and Kansas, among others.
One of the earliest programs Clarke, Indiana offered remains high on his list as it has been to campus twice, more than any other school. Although both were unofficial visits, Clarke can make official visits as his junior season approaches. Kentucky is currently the only other school to receive an unofficial visit, which he attended in October 2018.
During his visits in October 2017 and then in September 2018, Peegs.com tweeted Drew Davis Clarke’s intentions to take another trip to Bloomington. While no information has been given to the public on a date, I wouldn’t be shocked if it is sometime during the season.
At 6-foot-6, Clarke is a versatile security guard who can do almost anything when it comes to offense.
He plays for Expressions Elite (MA) on the Nike EYBL D1 Circuit and averages 17.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists while shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from three. Already this season in eight games he achieved results of 24 points and 26 points.
Clarke, one of the most explosive athletes in the whole country, is already listed as a potential number 1 in the 2022 NBA draft.
Here’s what Jerry Meyer, director of basketball scouting at 247Sports, said about Clarke’s game.
Has a long, wiry build for a sporty archer. Can be explosive but also has tremendous body control. His view of the field and his feel for the game are not in the charts. Tremendous passerby. Good ball handler who loves going left and taking advantage of speed changes. Can score in several ways. The jump shot is steadily improving. Play with energy and come out of range with loose balls and rebounds. Is also a multi-position defender. A potential # 1 in the draft.
His recruitment is definitely one to watch as an Indiana fanatic, but it’s worth noting that the NBA and NCAA can change the age at which a prospect can enter the NBA draft as Clarke might be able to Come on if the change would do this.
