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.
This is Amelia Rayno's fifth season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News. Follow Rayno on Twitter @AmeliaRayno.
