A consensus top-five player in the Class of 2020, Clarke has a lot of decisions to make.

Not only is he a consensus five-star recruit, but he’s also ranked in the top five for all basketball players within the Class of 2021. Now, Terrence Clarke (Boston, Mass./Brewster Academy) may look to end the recruiting process rather early.

He took the next step, narrowing down his options, which he announced on Friday. Clarke is going to decide between Memphis, Duke, UCLA, Kentucky, Boston College, and Texas Tech. He also shared that he may potentially reclassify a year ahead to 2020.

The highly sought after recruit also had offers from UConn, Georgetown, and St. John’s. UConn was the first school to offer him, doing so in Summer 2017. Georgetown entered the sweepstakes a year later, and St. John’s had only offered him a couple months ago.

He also had offers from Syracuse, Kansas, N.C. State, Indiana, LSU, Auburn, Alabama, Oregon, Vanderbilt, Pitt, Georgia, Baylor, Iowa, Saint Louis, Georgia Tech, and many others.

Clarke has set a date for his college announcement, which is slated to happen in a couple of weeks on Sept. 14. He will also explore a possible reclassification later this upcoming spring, months after his commitment. First, he wants to see how he’ll do on the SAT and ACT, and then see if he’ll be on track to be academically able to reclassify up a year.

On the Nike EYBL circuit with Expressions Elite, through 18 contests, Clarke averaged 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game.
