Stevie Clark Drawing Attention

Stevie Clark (Douglas, OK) has seen his recruitment rise over the past couple of months, due to strong performances he's put together this year. Clark, a 5-10, 170-pound point guard has proven that he's more than a elite scorer.

Clark has the ability to take over games with his deep-threat ability. He also has proven his ability to create off the dribble, make his teammates better and finish around the rim.

His playmaking ability was definitely on display at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest where he wow'd spectators with his 40-point performance.

In addition, in his most recent game, Clark posted 34 points, 13 assist and four steals.

School's that he's interested in right now are Baylor, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Marquette, Memphis, Missouri and Vanderbilt. He's also heard very briefly from Duke and would like to hear more from them.

"Jeff [Capel] offered him when he was at Oklahoma," she said. "He finally called us after the Thanksgiving game."

Arizona State, Georgia, Florida and Memphis are the newest programs involved, with the Gators coming out to his high school over Christmas break to see him play. Florida secured a commitment from Kasey Hill and it's unclear if they will continue recruiting him.

But, with his game continuously rising, I can see more colleges contacting him. Two schools have already made Clark a top target with much of their 2012 recruiting done. "[Oklahoma State] has probably come at him more than anybody besides Vanderbilt," his mother said. She also mentioned Louisville as a possible destination. Clark is a big on Louisville, despite not hearing from the Cardinals yet.

Nonetheless, despite narrowing his list down to a manageable number, he's still going to allow teams to get involved.
