Coach James Johnson landed his arguably best recruit to date (out of three), getting a verbal commitment from 6’4″ wing Donte Clark. Clark is yet another kid from Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, VA, bridging that pipeline that started with former Coach Greenberg. Clark is listed by some services as a small forward (though he’d be very short in the ACC for that) or as a shooting guard. In other words, expect him to play on the wing.
Donte is low 4-star prospect on average. ESPN Recruiting Nation ranks him the highest, with Donte at 4 stars, #82 overall in the class, and the #13 small forward. Rivals has Clark as a 4-star and the #101 prospect in the country, and #27 among shooting guards. 247 Sports rates him the lowest at 3-stars and #112 in the nation, and the #27 shooting guard.
Clark joins big man Trevor Thompson as Class of 2013 commitments for the Hokies. Donte is originally from Charlotte, another hot bed of Tech recruits of late (JT Thompson, Dorenzo Hudson, and Marquis Rankin).
