Clark picks up ACC offer

Posted November 19, 2012

Clayton's Gary Clark picked up his first offer from an Atlantic Coast Conference school this weekend.

The Clemson Tigers offered Clark on Saturday, according to Clayton coach Denny Medlin.

At 6-foot-7 and 215-pounds, Clark averaged 17 points and 14 rebounds last season as a sophomore, helping the Comets to a 21-7 record, making an appearance in the sectional final in the state playoffs.

According to ESPN.com, Clark is the 12th best player in North Carolina from the Class of 2014 and is rated a 3-star prospect.

Clark already reports offers from College of Charleston, East Carolina, Old Dominion, Ole Miss, Radford, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington and VCU.

Cincinnati is also recruiting him heavily, and Medlin believes an offer may be coming from them soon.

Clayton will open the season on Monday evening against Fuquay-Varina.
