TIMES STAFF REPORT
MOREHEAD - T.J. Clark, a 6-3, 185-pound guard from God's Academy Prep in Dallas, Tex., has signed a national letter-of-intent to play basketball at Morehead State University.
Clark averaged 23.7 points and six assists per game last season, helping lead God's Academy to a 23-10 record.
"T.J. is an extremely versatile combo guard who will bring skill and toughness to our team," said MSU Head Coach Donnie Tyndall. "He was a member of the Texas prep association all-state team, and more than that, he is an exceptional young man who will be a great asset to the Morehead community."
A native of the Dallas suburb of Cedar Hill, Tex., Clark attended Cedar Hill High School where he averaged 14 points and seven rebounds as a senior.
"I had a great visit to Morehead State and enjoyed meeting the coaching staff and all the players," Clark said. "It was a good experience. Everyone got along well, and I liked the campus and facilities. I'm looking forward to getting to Morehead and getting started."
Clark is MSU's third signee of the recruiting campaign. Tyndall inked guard John Lamb from Indianola, Iowa, in the fall. Lamb went on to earn all-state honors in Iowa and was a finalist for that state's Mr. Basketball award. Kenneth Faried, a 6-8 forward from Newark (N.J.) Technology High School signed earlier this spring. Faried earned First Team All-State Group 1 honors in New Jersey.
