Stephen Clark is not expected to face any OSSAA eligibility issues, since he will be returning to the same home at the same school where his eligibility was previously established, without having participated in any contests at Quest Prep. Dorshell Clark said she had already been in contact with administrators at Douglass to begin the re-enrollment process.

Stephen Clark is being recruited by a variety of top programs across the nation and is in the process of scheduling official visits starting in October.

He will visit Oklahoma State, though not likely in an official capacity. Still, the Cowboys are very much in the recruiting mix, which is important for them, considering their needs at point guard.

OSU's coaching staff made a strong impression on the Clarks during their in-home visit. Originally scheduled for the afternoon of Sept. 9 — the first day coaches could make in-home visits with basketball recruits — Travis Ford and two assistants called to reschedule their arrival for midnight.

“They wanted to be the first ones there,” Dorshell Clark said. “That really showed us something.”

Clark is setting up visits to UCLA, Connecticut and Baylor, but has yet to determine where he'll go for the final two of his five allowed official visits.
