Caitlin Clark fired back after 1-on-1 remark, former Iowa star football player says

Before the NFL Draft, DeJean said he could likely beat Clark one-on-one if the two ever met on the basketball court. DeJean was a standout high school basketball player in Iowa but chose to go the football route over the sport, and it eventually landed him in the NFL.

I mean, I was really just answering the question, but obviously, you know, Caitlin’s a special player,” he told Kay Adams on her show “Up and Adams.” “She’s done so much for women’s basketball as well and the University of Iowa in general. So I’ve had nothing but respect for her. 

“She took a shot back at me after she texted me, and she said didn’t think that I could beat her. I’ll let her say that, but yeah, I mean, I think it’d be fun though if we got to play each other.”

Adams did not think DeJean could do it. However, when they played his highlights, he asserted he had some skills. He admitted, though, there was no date set for the potential one-on-one matchup.

He was a three-year varsity basketball player while attending OABCIG High School in Ida Grove, Iowa, scoring 1,832 points. That is 45 more points than NBA player Harrison Barnes scored in Iowa during his career (but 55 behind Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson).
