Cheltenham's Jack Clark commits to play hoops at La Salle

Cheltenhams Jack Clark goes up for a shot against Spring-Ford in a PIAA District 1 Class 6A playoff games last season.

Deciding to stay close to home, Cheltenham senior guard Jack Clark announced his commitment to play basketball at La Salle on Thursday night.

The 6-foot-7, 185-pounder, who plays AAU ball for Philly Pride, chose the Explorers over Dayton, Massachusetts, Penn State, and South Florida.

Clark averaged about 18 points per game last season while helping Cheltenham go 19-8, place fourth in the PIAA District 1 Class 6A playoffs, and advance to the state tournament.
