Brandon Clarke – Gonzaga (6’8, 210 lbs)

Clarke was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, though moved to Phoenix at only the age of 3. Despite having spent most of his life in the United States, Clarke would be a tremendous asset to Team Canada if he decides to play for the Canadian National Team.

His underdog story is rather uncanny, as he was a 6-foot-6, 175-pound high school senior at Desert Vista, garnering a single NCAA offer from San Jose State. After a star turn as a sophomore in the Mountain West, Clarke transferred to Gonzaga, re-tooling his shot and working on his game outside of the paint.
