Clarkson had a breakout season with Tulsa, averaging 16.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists as a sophomore. It is believed that Clarkson just wants an opportunity for greater exposure by playing for an NCAA tournament qualifying and competitive team. He also wants to showcase his skills in front of NBA spectators at those tournament games.
Clarkson measures in at 6-foot-4, 185 pounds and would bring skill as well as size to the Tigers back court.
