Jack Clark commits, NC State adds versatility and scoring

Finally, some good news for NC State basketball. Jack Clark, a 6-foot-8 wing from La Salle, will transfer to NC State.

It’s been an onslaught in recent months/weeks in terms of bad news for the Wolfpack; Shawn Phillips, a 4-star center in the 2022 recruiting class, decommitted from NC State on Monday (April 18). However, the addition of Clark is a solid get for Kevin Keatts.

During the 2021-22 season, Clark averaged 12.0 points (38.4 FG%), 5.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steal per game. Clark appeared in 63 games at La Salle, making 43 starts.

Clark spent four years at La Salle; he missed the entire 2019-20 season due to an ACL tear. Going back to his senior year of high school, Clark suffered two ACL tears in his left knee.

Assistant coach James Johnson led the recruitment of Clark, who visited NC State’s campus last week.

Clark is a career 30.4 percent 3-point shooter (96-of-316 3PA).

Currently, NC State has three scholarships remaining for next season, along with the NBA Draft decisions of Terquavion Smith and Dereon Seabron.
