Report: 2015 recruit Chris Clarke narrows list, keeps Minnesota on it
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.

A restraining order filed against a North Carolina man killed by police last week shouldn't matter because officers who confronted him didn't know about that history before he was shot to death, a civil rights leader said.
Unanswered questions still surround the fatal police shooting of a black man by police in North Carolina despite a week of rallies and marches calling for wider investigations and more transparency by law enforcement.
Nebraska senior wing Shavon Shields had 19 points at halftime, and his relentless driving to the basket was instrumental in knocking the Gophers out of the game early. He finished with 24 points and eight rebounds.
