The Big East school announced the signing of Clark on Wednesday, less than a month after the 6-foot-6 junior told the Spartans that he was transferring.
Clark visited St. John’s over the weekend after a previous visit to Providence, another Big East program. The Kansas City-native joins a Red Storm team that went 8-24 last season under first-year head coach Chris Mullin.
“I had an immediate connection with coach Mullin and the coaching staff,” Clark said in a press release. “I feel extremely comfortable moving forward at a place where I can be an integral part of the future success of the program.”
Clark will have to sit out a season per NCAA rules, but will still have two years of eligibility remaining. In two seasons at Michigan State, Clark averaged 4.2 points per game and served as the team’s primary back-up power forward last season.
The Spartans placed no restrictions on Clark’s transfer, meaning he could have transferred to a Big Ten school or a school on Michigan State’s schedule. MSU’s other transfer Javon Bess has yet to choose a school, but has also been given a scholarship release to any school he pleases.
