Cape Henry Collegiate (Virginia Beach, VA) small forward Chris Clarke was a late addition to last week’s 2014 NBPA Top 100 Camp, but he made the most of his opportunity. Corey Evans of (a TSL sister site), Rick Lewis of Phenom Hoop Report, and Paul Biancardi of ESPN all cited the 6’6” rising senior as one of the breakout performers of the camp.

In nine games at the Top 100, Clarke averaged 9.1 points and 3.6 rebounds per contest. His eight steals tied for second on his team.

“There are a lot of great players here. Just a great show to watch,” Clarke said in an interview last week. “I’m just meeting new people, trying to play as hard as I can, do the best I can for my team.”

Clarke, who plays for Boo Williams’ 17-and-under AAU squad, is one of Virginia Tech’s top in-state targets in the class of 2015. He took a visit to Blacksburg earlier this month.

“It’s a new coaching staff there, so I just got to know them a little more. I didn’t get to see the whole facility last time, so I just saw that. That was new to me too. And I visited most of the academic [parts of the school],” Clarke said of his experience at Tech.

“It looks great. It was great weather while I was there, but I know it kind of gets cold down there.”

Clarke also took an unofficial visit to Minnesota in May.

“It was great there, too. They told me once it gets to winter it gets really cold, so that’s something that will play into my decision,” Clarke said.

Tech and Minnesota, as well as Creighton, Iowa State, Maryland and Tulane, are among the schools
