#5 CLARENCE RUPERT - 6'7 - WING/FORWARD - MILLER SCHOOL
Clarence Rupert has seen his ceiling grow a ton since joining Miller School in 2019-20. He put up 18.4 points and 3.2 rebounds per game as they adjusted under new head coach Jack Meriwether. He’ll be looked upon to do a whole lot more as one of their primary scorers in the rotation once again in 2020-21. He holds offers from Wichita State, St. Louis, Murray State, Georgia and others heading into his senior season.
6’7 ’21 Clarence Rupert (Team Push)
While there were multiple national-level prospects on display, Clarence Rupert still stood out as one of the most intriguing. Team Push was easily among the top teams in attendance, and Rupert looked phenomenal in a leadership role (despite not even playing in every game). Though he already holds nearly a dozen Division I offers, it’s actually quite surprising that more schools aren’t involved. Rupert seems somewhat underrated, considering he’s a fairly obvious high-major talent with all the tools to be an absolute matchup problem against any type of competition. At 6-foot-7 with a fluid, football-like frame, he’s incredibly difficult for opponents to contain. Most players take what the defense is giving them, whereas Rupert has the ability to take whatever he wants—whenever he wants it. This isn’t meant to imply he forces the action or won’t take advantage of available opportunities, but rather that his combination of IQ, size, and skill makes him virtually unstoppable. Rupert can get downhill and finish with force or finesse around the basket, but also displays vision and a willingness to make the best possible play. However, he’s also proven to be an effective perimeter shooter with the ability to create his own shot with relative ease. Rupert also regularly operates out of the post and actively looks to exploit mismatches. His versatility translates to both ends of the floor, as he possesses the necessary strength, quickness, and mobility to defend at least three positions comfortably. Rupert is an exceptional rebounder with great hands and the capability to effortlessly push the break in transition. There’s simply no questioning his appeal, so folks should expect his offer sheet to continue growing throughout his senior season.
