Twitterfeed: @mikeclark77

High School: Downington East High School (Exton, Penn.)

Position: OT

Stats: 6'7" and 275 lbs

Commitment Date: January 23, 2016

Ratings: Clark is a 3-star recruit across the board. 247 Sports has him as a 3 star, .8370 prospect. ESPN has him as a 3 star prospect as well.

Other Offers: Maryland, Rugters, South Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State and others.


Player Breakdown: Clark is a tall, comparatively lanky OT, but needs to add more muscle and fill out his frame. As long as he adds more weight, he has the tools to develop into a strong OT, probably after redshirting his freshman year. All of his weak points can be fixed as long as adds muscle. Clark's length is his greatest asset, but he needs to work on hand placement and staying in front of defenders. If he fixes that, he will become a good to great OT at the Power 5 level.
