Adding another elite piece to the roster, the Virginia Cavaliers women’s basketball team has landed a commitment from former five star guard Paris Clark. Transferring from Arizona, Clark was a 2022 McDonald’s All-American while she also won the New York Gatorade Player of the Year award while being ranked as the 21st best player in the 2022 class by ESPN.

In a statement, Coach Mox said that “I’m thrilled to officially welcome Paris into our Wahoo Family.” Continuing, she added that Clark “is a high-character, hard-working, talented player who wants to be a part of something special here at UVA! Her game speaks for itself, a guard who can play on both sides of the ball! A three-level scorer, defensive stopper and rebounder. I am certain she will thrive in our culture and impact our program on and off the court!”

With a stacked 2023 recruiting class with talented guards Kymora Johnson and Olivia McGhee coming in, Clark is the fourth McDonald’s All-American on the roster alongside Johnson, Mir McLean, and Sam Brunelle. After an up and down 2022-2023 season that was largely plagued by injuries, Virginia looks primed for a big 2023-2024 season with an effective mix of young talent and established older players. After a relatively quiet freshman season, Clark adds more blue chip talent to an up and coming program that is poised for greatness in the coming years under Coach Mox.
