National Signing Day 2016: 3-Star S Devon Clarke Joins Orange, Finally

Clarke committed to Syracuse, who then said no, but then said yes.

It's been a long, strange trip for Devon Clarke on his way to becoming a member of the Syracuse Orange football team. He committed in July 2015 before finding out that his offer wasn't actually still valid. The new staff apparently liked him more and re-offered. He accepted.


High School: Osceola High School, Kissimmee, FL

Position: Safety

Stats: 6'2", 183 pounds

Main Recruiter: Nick Monroe

Commitment Date: 1/17/16

Ratings: Scout (3), Rivals (3), 24/7 (3)

Other Offers: Oregon State (originally-committed), Bowling Green, Purdue, South Florida, Temple, Mass, Marshall, etc.


Player Breakdown: Clarke has a good pedigree coming from a powerhouse high school program. He brings some necessary size and big-hitting ability to a secondary that's always in desperate need of athletes.
