2006 ABCD Player Eval: Jason Clark

Teaneck, N.J. Jason Clark, Class of 2008, 6'2", 160 lb, Guard from Bishop O'Connell (VA) was in action at the 2006 Reebok ABCD Camp last week. Here is an evaluation of his performance at the camp.

Strengths: Clark has good quickness and athleticism. He has a wiry frame and long "wing-span" that enable him to play solid on-the-ball defense. Clark sees the floor well and has nice passing skills even off the bounce. He doesn't force the action and willingly defers to teammates. Given his frame, he still has decent strength.

He was very solid all week at taking care of the ball his assist-to-turnover ratio was good and he committed only two turnovers the entire week. That said - he did play mostly off the ball. Clark teamed in the back-court with Class of 2008, Point Guard, Travon Woodall from St. Anthony's (NJ).

Weaknesses: Clark needs to become stronger. His legs are extremely skinny and his lack of strength limits his ability to get to the rim off the dribble. Sometimes players that are as lanky as Clark improve their handle, strength and confidence as they begin to fill out that could happen with Jason too.

His outside shooting, especially from beyond the arc, needs to improve. He took primarily wide open looks in the games witnessed by VUSports and shot just 30% for the camp. If he is going to be a 2 (which his wing-span permits from a "who can you guard" perspective) he has to be more of a threat to shoot it from deep especially given the aforementioned difficulties driving and finishing. If he is going to be a 1, his handle needs to improve as well.

At this stage, Clark looks like a mid-major prospect. He needs to hone his offensive skills, improve his shooting and take control more.
