College Basketball Early Signing Day Coverage: Gary Clark Signs With UC

Gary Clark will become a Cincinnati Bearcat next fall.



The 6’7″ lengthy athlete is being characterized by a power forward by many. I’ve tabbed him as a small forward because of his athletic abilities and the fact that he isn’t all that large of a player. In many respects his game seems closer to a Jermaine Lawrence (small forward) than a Justin Jackson (power forward). Quite honestly, the argument could be made either way as Clark appears to be able to fit either mold. Regardless, it’s clear Mick Cronin has signed a multifaceted player who can contribute in a number of ways.

    Clark, a Four STAR PF/SF/SG will be a nightmare match up to defend. He has a solid game inside, mid range, and behind the arc.

    Cronin was talking the same bs last year with the signing of Lawrence. You see what we got. When are the fans going to realize that Cronin can’t coach.
