Clark hails from Indian Trail, North Carolina and attended Metrolina Christian Academy. He comes in at 6-foot-8, 205 pounds.
The Citadel finished the year at 10-22 and come from the Southern Conference where Furman play. Furman went on to upset No. 4 Virginia in the NCAA Tournament as a No. 13 seed on a last second shot from J.P. Pegues.
South Carolina had a similar season to that of The Citadel. The Gamecocks finished with an 11-21 record after losing to Ole Miss in the first round of the SEC Tournament.
South Carolina’s leading scorer was Gregory “GG” Jackson II, who averaged 15.4 point per game. However, the Gamecocks will love adding someone of Clark’s caliber to their ranks.
It’ll be interesting to see how the team decides to use Clark in their plans for 2023.
