Stephan Clark ended his prep career in style. The senior guard scored 51 points for the Douglass High School Trojans as the Trojans beat Roland High School 82-80 for the 4A Oklahoma state title game back on March 9. The crowd of 7,000 was entertained most of the night as Clark hit nine 3-pointers.
Roland’s Seth Youngblood and Clark dueled all night long. Youngblood, a Arkansas-Fort Smith signee, knocked down nine 3-pointers as well, and finished with 41 points.
First-year Douglass coach Anthony Andrew told Scott Wright of NewsOK after the win, “it was exciting, just a lot of fun to watch the kids compete.”
After Douglass coach Terry Long changed jobs last May, Clark was planning on graduating early and attend college. When nothing surfaced, Clark started to attend Quest Prep in Las Vegas, but it was a good fit. Clark left after a month, and went back to Oklahoma.
Clark said, “this year was a learning experience. I went off to see if I could handle prep school, but my mom wasn’t feeling it, so I had to come back home, because she knows what’s best for me.”
Clark received offers from Oklahoma State, Baylor and Missouri before committing to Oklahoma State back on November 21. The 4-star recruit is ranked no. 14 at point guard and the No. 1 player out of the state of Oklahoma.
Clark will join a team that finished the regular season No. 14 in the nation and third in the conference. The team will be ready to accept this scoring point guard, and they will be ready to force themselves into the top 10.
