Man, that was a rough month.
After a bunch of news of guys leaving, finally Keatts adds a solid piece in 6’8 wing Jack Clark from La Salle.
Clark is a 6’8 versatile wing who has a great stroke, sneaky athleticism, and is a fundamentally sound kid. He will have 2 years of eligability left and will certainly slot into NC State’s starting 5 from day one.
Last season Clark averaged 12 points and 6 boards, however he only shot 38% from the floor and 30% from long range. That said, Clark has battle a lot of injuries, but seems finally to be fully healthy. During his freshman season he shot 41% from the floor and blistering 41% from long range. He was a great shooter coming out of high school and many believe his battle with injuries were the cause of inefficincy shooting the ball the past two seasons.
Take a look…

Clark is a piece that will fit well in this system. He’s a smart player and a good passer for his size. He’s not going to create much off the dribble in the ACC, but if State can land a solid distributor at PG, Clark could really blossom. This is a very good portal pickup.
