Evaluation From Scouts, Inc.
April, 2009: Clark has explosive scoring ability and can put a high number of points on the board in a flash. He has very good leaping ability and a quick first step, which allows him to get to the rim with ease. Clark does not shy from contact and will look to finish strong in traffic off the dribble. His next step in his progression should see him learn to simplify his game, learning to use his quickness to get to spots on the floor with less dribbles, as he has a tendency to over-dribble at times, thus bringing his team’s offense to a halt at times, in addition to leading to turnovers by Clark. Clark has range that extends out to the 3-point line and he will also hit on the mid-range pull-up jumper, but he needs to improve his form just a tad, as he cradles the ball a little bit, putting the ball behind his head a little, and ending up on top of the ball, but his follow ends up in the right place. He also needs to improve his shot selection and his understanding of not turning down easier shots for more difficult ones. He also shoots a set shot at times and his accuracy suffers when he does not elevate on his jumper. Clark runs the floor very well and also gets hustle points in transition and will take his game to the next level once he fully grasps how to play off his teammates and create shot opportunities for them. He also needs to continue to devote energy to the defensive end of the floor. Full Evaluation Here
