Hargrave Military Academy guard Donte Clark is unable to enroll at Virginia Tech after failing to meet the university's academic standards.
Wednesday, July 3, 2013
Virginia Tech men’s basketball signee Donte Clark has been denied admission to the university, according to a Virginia Tech source.
Clark, a guard from Hargrave Military Academy, was going to be one of six scholarship freshmen on the Hokies for the upcoming season.
But he did not meet Tech admissions standards because of academic reasons relating to his GPA and SAT, the source said. He will not be enrolling at Tech this year or in a future year, the source said.
The NCAA has yet to rule on Clark’s academic resume. Clark is still going through the NCAA Eligibility Center (formerly the NCAA Clearinghouse) process, the source said, so it is not yet known whether he will meet NCAA freshman eligibility standards or not.
Clark would have been one of four contenders to succeed Erick Green at point guard this year, along with Marquis Rankin and spring signees Devin Wilson and Malik Mueller.
With Clark not heading to Tech, the Hokies will have 12 scholarship players on their team this year. That’s still more than the eight scholarship players Tech had at its disposal last season.
Clark, a Charlotte, N.C., native, signed with Tech last fall. He played as a senior for Hargrave’s postgraduate team last season. The 6-foot-4 Clark spent his junior year at Kennedy Charter Public School in Charlotte after transferring from Queens Guard High School in Matthews, N.C.
