Perfect Game:
Clarke popped up on the draft radar this spring as an extremely physical, very athletic prospect with some power in his righthanded bat. He's a catcher now and is expected to continue behind the plate at South Carolina, but some scouts are wary of his below average arm strength and are therefore hesitant to project him behind the plate at the professional level. He does have the athleticism to potentially play the outfield, though the arm strength would likely limit him to left field. There is pretty significant power from the right side as well, and while the bat is raw now, the hope is that he'll develop as a hitter to where the power will play frequently in games.

Prep Baseball Report:
Clarke is 6-3 with a projectable athletic frame that he can still add to. Hits from the right side from an athletic stance, short leg kick stride on line, smooth load back, good rhythm to his swing. Explosive hips and good balance to swing. Quick hands, quick to ball, works uphill through it with good extension. Has a line drive swing with a lot of power potential, ball carries well, showed ability to use who field in BP, slight pull approach in game, exit velocity was 94. Behind the plate, sways quietly, soft hands receiving, presents a very good strike, quick into his blocks. Quick, clean exchange, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, short loose arm action, yanks head some at release. Pop times were 1.94-2.01 and position velocity was 78, showed some accuracy with his throws. Home to first was 4.56.
