Five-star guard Paris Clark visits Tennessee Lady Vols after reopening recruitment

·1 min read

Tennessee Lady Vols coach Kellie Harper already has one five-star recruit signed for the class of 2022, and she had another on a visit Monday.

Paris Clark, a five-star guard from New York, was in Knoxville this week. She was originally committed to UCLA, but reopened her recruitment in November after 2022 guard Kiki Rice, who's ranked No. 2 in her class, and four other recruits signed in November.

Former Vols basketball player Brian Williams is her uncle, and was with her on her visit.

Tennessee's only signee from the early signing period is five-star Justine Pissott, a 6-foot-4 guard/forward from New Jersey. Pissott is No. 11 overall and No. 2 in her position in espnW's Top 100.

A 5-10 guard, Clark is No. 21 overall and No. 5 in her position in espnW's Top 100. She's an athletic guard with handles and great court vision. Clark put up 18.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 3.7 steals per game in her pandemic-shortened sophomore season. She also made MaxPrep's All-American fifth team as a sophomore at Long Island Lutheran in Brookville.

The next opportunity for Clark to sign is April 13.

Only three other Lady Vols have come from New York: Chamique Holdsclaw, Nicky Anosike and Shannon Bobbitt.
