    Marvin Clark

    With Marvin Clark on his official visit this weekend and not much known about him I thought I’d share what I found out about him.

    First off he plays for a prep school it Wichita KS, Sunrise Christian. According to Max Preps they are the #7 prep school in the nation. Based off his prep school hoops website, http://www.sunrisechristianhoops.com.../prepteam.html, he is a 6’7” 220 lb forward. I listed below his stats I found from about half his games this year. Not all his games listed his stats so this is all the games I could find by searching different sites and twitter.

    11/1 Garden City CC - 16 pts, 8 rebs, 3 asts
    11/2 JUCO team? - 18 pts, 7 rebs, 4 asts
    11/15 Cloud County CC - 32 pts, 14 rebs, 4 asts, 2 stls
    12/12 Independence CC - 30 pts, 13 rebs
    12/14 Butler CC - 23 pts, 6 rebs
    1/16 ABCD - 25 pts, 12 rebs, 6 asts (Malou’s team)
    1/17 St Johns Military - 20 pts, 8 rebs
    1/18 Quakerdale - 23 pts, 8 rebs
    1/20 Provision - 18 pts, 8 rebs, 10 asts (all most a triple double)
    1/20 CYM - 20 pts, 9 rebs

    As you can see he has some crazy good stats playing against D1 Juco teams and good Prep school teams. The first 5 are against JUCO and the last 5 are Prep teams. According to D1circuit.com his season stats are 24 pts, 10.3 rebs, 5.0 asts per game.

    Travis Hines wrote a good article yesterday about Clark’s visit, http://amestrib.com/hines-hoops/2014...talks-cyclones. Hines said he was committed to Oregon at one time but has now opened up his recruitment. The main schools he is considering are Oregon, Kansas State, Seton Hall, Ole Miss, Iowa State, Michigan State & Indiana. Clark also has offers from Mississippi, Arkansas, Bradley, Iowa, Oklahoma & Wichita State.

    In this highlight video of him watch the very end where he goes behind the back to get by his defender. The defender literally falls to the ground. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2irDRsMZQkY

    From that article sounds like he likes what he sees. I would take him in a heartbeat. Great size and good handles. I like it.

    Re: Marvin Clark

    Good work cloneraslin. Also in Hines article, it mentioned he started off well in the prestigious EYBL (summer league) before breaking his foot, which makes you hope he is a bit under-recruited to what his talent level is. I also like that he is a post-grad prep school guy, somewhat the same advantage of a redshirt.




    From the little highlights and stats I had found, it looked like his game was perfect for how we use our forwards. From Hines article it sounds like he feels the same. Ejim and Georges play yesterday was a great selling point imo.

    Re: Marvin Clark

    2014 is going to how it all unfolds. The three targets are RV, Malou and Clark. I think Freddy has something up his sleeve.

    Does Malou have 3 years and Clark have 4 years of eligibility?

    Marvin, come to play for The Mayor. He has things rolling here, and would love you to be a part of that. He will make you a better shooter, prepare you for an NBA style of play. You will play against some of the best teams in the nation, and get a chance to take down KU.

    Re: Marvin Clark

    I'd take Clark over Malou. Clark seems like more of a sure thing. Malou's recruitment just seems fishy to me. I'd take either one but if it's one or the other, give me Clark.

    I think Malou would be a 2015 recruit

    Both would have 4 years. Prep school doesn't affect their clock.

    2forISU, they both have 5 years to play 4.

    It would be great to get them both, and I think the staff wants both in addition to Vaughn, but I agree with gocubs. If Malou signs with ISU, he could be great or he could not ever make it to ISU due to the NCAA clearinghouse. Clark may not have has high of ceiling, but I think it is more likely he would be a significant contributor, especially in regards to 2014-15. I really hope Malou can get some college credit to improve his chance to get past the clearinghouse and wait for the class of 2015, as he would be a great addition too.

    Also, Clark's pg at Sunrise is going to Michigan State, FWIW.

    Re: Marvin Clark

    He is a lefty also. That would mess with the defense

    Re: Marvin Clark

    Looks like he can do about everything on offense, rebound, and has the body type to be a really good B12 defender. WANT
