This is well done and yet obviously done by someone who never saw him play and didn't interview people who did.
He was Special K and billed as kind of the next Magic. He threw behind the back no-look passes and could rebound better than any other Buckeye in my lifetime. I saw him get rebounds one-handed, like in the photo above, and then throw the outlet pass without ever putting his left hand on the ball.
That high school class of 79 was so incredible, and he was right there, though behind Sampson, and I think he and Ralph were likely the reason we scheduled a home and home in 80 and 81 with UVa. People here were so excited that he was coming. The championship high school game against Granville Waiters, who was being recruited hard by ScUM, was on the radio, was much-anticipated, and I still run into people who remember listening to it on the radio like I did.
A highlight in 80 was the one point victory in St. John over Indiana, which was cathartic after the Charles White Rose Bowl loss. I am 95% sure freshman Clark went to the line with less than 10 seconds and hit the two free throws to go ahead of freshman Isiah and a team a year from winning the tournament.
He got hit in the face in a Big 10 game and lost at least 1 front tooth. His first couple years in Indy he came back and did Majestic paint ads on TV in Columbus. Maybe he just hadn't gotten used to the teeth, but I was stunned later when he became such a well-regarded broadcaster because the ads were pretty rough.
Thanks for the flash.
