The news was first reported by Travis Branham of 247 Sports, Clark later confirmed that he has suffered a partially torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee, keeping him out the remainder of the summer.
“To all those that support and show me love around the country it saddens me to say that I have suffered an injury to the ACL and meniscus in my left leg,” Clark announced. “I will not be participating in any more basketball events for a few months as I go through the process of healing, recovery and rehabilitation!”
Clark continued, “I’ve gotten great news from one of the top surgeons in the world that my left leg will come back STRONGER than ever and this will not affect my decision to attend Montverde Academy this Fall and the University of Kentucky in 2022. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I go through this journey/thing called life in the most positive way possible. Thank you all.”
Jack Pilgrim of Kentucky Sports Radio spoke with Clark’s father, Kenny Clark, who said he has already started the rehab process and the future Cats will be “back in no time.”
“He’s doing really well,” Clark said. “Started rehab already and will be back in no time.”
We all wish Clark a speedy recovery as he works to get back on the court.
