Jamie Vaught: Freshman guard Terrence Clarke could become UK fan favorite with downtown jumpers


克斯塔尔卫队布兰登“BJ”波士顿进入这个Covid-19篮球赛季,被认为是肯塔基州大学最庆祝的新生。

但是,大蓝国家需要为另一个新秀克拉克的名字留出来,这是一个与6英尺 - 7波士顿一样好的五星级前景。像波士顿一样,他可以帮助野猫大力。

根据最新的2021模拟草案在Nbadraft.NET的最新2021模拟草案,克拉克是一名爆炸性市中心跳投的真正运动员,194英镑的跳线,194英镑的射击卫队,克拉克比波士顿(第12号)总体上涨甚至更高。

Clarke在最近对媒体采访时表示,从Brawster Academy在新罕布什尔州向英国的过渡到英国的过渡已经愉快。

“Honestly, it’s fun. Growing up, you always thought of these situations,” said Clarke, who helped Brewster capture the 2019 National Prep Championship and also guided his team back to the 2020 finals with a 34-3 record before the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the rest of the event. “I always grew up watching basketball and watching guys on the court do these kinds of things (like interviews).

“所以,我在这个位置上,我只是把傅ll advantage of it and having as much fun as possible. I mean, the transition is kind of weird because I haven’t done it before, but I’m just trying to have as much fun as I can because this is a lifetime dream for me really.”

By the way, Clarke, who is from the city of Boston, has a favorite basketball memory which took place over 10 years ago. He got to watch the Celtics play and met Rajon Rando, a former Wildcat standout who played at Boston for several years. Clarke said he was really excited when approaching the star player.

“我停了下来,冻结了,”克拉克在一个Boston.comarticle by Deyscha Smith. “I don’t know how the security let me do this, but I ran to him screaming, ‘Rondo! Rondo!’ I shut down crying and he said, ‘Keep working.’ That advice changed me.”

And the Kentucky freshman got to see Rondo several years later at a camp. “I told him that I always looked up to [him] and he told me I was a great player,” added Clarke in Boston.com. “Hearing that from him was crazy.”

Clarke said he is very blessed as he is being compared to former Wildcat All-Americans like John Wall who have become NBA stars.

“我觉得我觉得我可以成为一个好的篮球运动员,一个很棒的人,”克拉克,这位前麦当劳的克拉克,克拉克,在游戏前享用酸性虫和苹果汁。“对我来说,只是听到那个,它有点让我更有信心继续在我的游戏上工作并尽可能努力地玩耍。”

As one of the nation’s 20 best shooting guards, Clarke recently was chosen to the 2021 Jerry West Award watch list. Clarke is one of only two freshmen on this season’s preseason list.

即使他被野猫招募的招聘,克拉克也意识到肯塔基州的篮球不适合每个人。

“这是一个挑战,”克拉克说。“我认为这是一个挑战,特别是当我到达这里时。我知道的第一件事是这所学校不是为每个人而不是。显然是你将不得不在比下一个人和那样更难地工作的东西。我们拥有各种类型的五星,这里的篮球运动员,我们有一些转移和类似的东西。

“So, every day is a battle. You have other schools where five-star recruits are kind of paved the way to the starting lineup spots, but here you have to work for your spot. When he (Coach Cal) says that this school isn’t for everybody, that means you have to be ready to work every day.”

根据Clarke的说法,英国教练John Calipari肯定会引导他强硬。

“Every day. Day in and day out. Every practice,” said Clarke. “I feel like every day coach has something to say to me. I just kind of take it in and work as hard as I can to understand what he’s saying, because obviously Coach Cal is a great coach, one of the best college basketball coaches in the world. For him being on me every day, I just take it as him wanting me to be great and as good as possible. I just work as hard as I can every day.”


This past summer Clarke was invited to join his rookie teammates Devin Askew and Boston to play and work out together in California. And he accepted the offer.

当我在Brewster(学院)的季节结束时,谈话是一种促使,“克拉克召回。“德文和BJ告诉我,我可以在那里出来并与他们留下来和他们一起锻炼身体。对我来说,那些是我未来的队友,我以为它会没有问题。我,个人,我在波士顿努力工作,但在洛杉矶我们甚至努力工作。我觉得我们每天工作大约四到五次,所以我知道情况会很棒。

“我暂时待了BJ。我呆在那里大约一个月,一个月和半个月。在一天结束时,我们只是在工作。我知道如果我能够在那里和队友一起工作,我们可以提前建造化学。我们的主要目标是赢得冠军,显然这是一个很好的情况。

“我认为BJ是一名伟大的篮球运动员。我一直在想。我来肯塔基州的主要事情也是在这里到达这里。自从我们在Nbap和Elite 100等营地以来,我们谈到了在学校的合作。

“在肯塔基州,时间会告诉。我们要做一些伤害,我觉得,但我们真的不想说太多。我认为我们的主要是扮演团队。即使我们在这样的翅膀和类似的东西,我们也有其他伟大的篮球运动员喜欢(7英尺)Olivier Sarr,Isaiah Jackson和Devin Askew。列表继续。我觉得我和BJ在翅膀上又补充了团队中的其他人。“

肯塔基州(肯塔基)在联邦新闻前赛前25个民意调查中排名第10投票,于11月25日开设其竞选活动当它在Rupp竞技场的四队蓝草展示中面临着Mething Sound州。
