St. Joe's Prep's Chris Clover offered scholarship to La Salle

According to a source close to him, Chris Clover has been offered a basketball scholarship from La Salle University. Clover, a junior combo guard at St. Joe's Prep, has been excelling on the court at Philadelphia University the past three days. He's shown versatility as a strong rebounding guard that can create his own shot.

“I can do more than just score the ball," said the 6-foot-3 Philadelphia native.

“I can get rebounds get a couple steals and play defense. I had to [rebound] at the Prep so it's something I had to continue to just get better at." 

The Reebok Classic Breakout, which hosts many of the best high school prospects in the country, concluded Friday with an All-Star game.

Clover, who hails from 63d and Cedar Avenues, averaged nine points and 4.6 rebounds per game for the Hawks last season, helping them to a 24-6 record and AAAA Class Semifinal appearance.
