Clarke, shown here soaring at the 2014 NBA Top 100 camp in Charlottesville, has displayed his versatile for Cape Henry this season.

Virginia Tech-bound small forward Chris Clarke led Cape Henry Collegiate (Virginia Beach, VA) to the 2014/2015 VISAA Division 1 state championship.

Clarke, a 6’6″ senior and 4-star prospect, scored 16 points in Cape Henry’s 75-61 win over St. Christopher’s in the state semifinals last Friday, and on Saturday he poured in 18 points and pulled down 11 boards as Cape Henry pulled out a 54-53 win over Paul VI (Fairfax, VA) in the championship game. Paul VI featured Syracuse-bound senior guard Franklin Howard and junior power forward Corey Manigault, the latter a Virginia Tech target.

This championship is the second in three years for Cape Henry, which is led by head coach Mark Hall. The Dolphins (31-2) may still have some season left to play, as they are reportedly being considered for the 2015 Dick’s National High School Tournament.

Kerry Blackshear

Currently the lone post in Virginia Tech’s 2015 Class, 6’9″ Kerry Blackshear helped Evans (Orlando, FL) to a 22-7 overall record in the 2014/2015 season. The Trojans earned the no. 1 seed in the Class 8A Region 1 playoffs before falling to Dr. Phillips in the quarterfinals.

Prior to the postseason, Blackshear was averaging around 20 points, 14 rebounds and four assists per game.

Justin Robinson

6’1″ point guard Justin Robinson scored 27 points in his final game at Saint James (Hagerstown, MD), a 63-60 loss to St. Andrew’s in the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference semifinals. Robinson plans to be in Blacksburg this evening for Virginia Tech’s home contest against Boston College.
