August 21, 2014 — 8:49pm
University of Minnesota target Chris Clarke has narrowed his list to seven teams, including the Gophers, according HoopsIntel analyst Corey Evans.
Per Evans, the 6-6 four-star (according to Rivals) wing is now considering Iowa State, Virginia Tech, Creighton, Florida, UConn and Tennessee, along with Minnesota.
The Gophers have four scholarships available for Clarke's 2015 class and have already gotten one commitment from four-star point guard Kevin Dorsey.
Clarke, a super athletic and somewhat unorthodox forward from Virginia, has demonstrated a knack for rebounding and finishing at the rim. He's one of a handful of recruits the Gophers have keyed in as the fall rolls around.

Freshman guard Isaiah Washington will make his local debut on a team with All-Big Ten forward Jordan Murphy. Nate Mason and Amir Coffey are teammates and Apple Valley star Tre Jones has two Minnesota teammates.
