Point guard Stevie Clark (Oklahoma City/Douglass) is coming home. Clark, ranked No. 60 in the ESPN 100 and No. 14 at point guard, is transferring back to Oklahoma City Douglass. His mother, Dorshell Clark, confirmed the news Tuesday afternoon.
Stevie Clark, who is 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, had transferred to Quest Prep Academy in Las Vegas last month following the departure of his longtime high school coach and friend Terry Long. Long is now coaching at Mustang, Okla., after helping guide Oklahoma City Douglass to three consecutive Class 4A state championships with Clark as his point guard.
Stevie Clark has become the No. 1 priority for Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford. When Sept. 9 rolled around and coaches could make visits again, Ford didn’t show up in the morning. Ford was there at midnight, Dorshell said.
Stevie Clark is in the process of setting up his official visits. OSU most likely will not get one because it’s not necessary because of all the times he has seen the school. Other programs in the running include UCLA, Connecticut, Florida State, Baylor and Missouri.
Stevie Clark was the ESPN Gatorade Player of the Year in Oklahoma last season, averaging 25 points and 11 assists per game.
