Ronnie Clark Snags Tide Offer

Ronnie Clark stands 6–foot-3, 206 pounds and he still has two full high school football seasons left to improve on his size and skill-set. His versatility is quickly making him a coveted prospect in the South and he may balloon to a national prospect based on the most recent offer he attained.

After camping at Alabama on the offensive side of the ball on Monday, Ronnie  Clark walked away from the session with offer no. 3 in his pocket.

"I met with Nick Saban in his office and I was shocked," he admitted. "When I got my first offer (Auburn) I was shocked and when I got this offer I was shocked. It was cool, it was a nice offer to get but it was shocking to me."

The Calera (AL) High product has long admired the Crimson Tide, though he maintains no favorites at this time.

"It's great, it's one of the best in the country," he said of Tuscaloosa and the camp experience. "You can't go wrong going there…"

Clark brings versatility to the table as a high school prospect and he projects as a player that can be molded into several different spots at the BCS-level.

"It was cool, I liked it there and I had fun," he said. "They (the coaching staff) taught me stuff I need to better my skills at the receiver position, because that's where I worked out today.

"They said I can play numerous positions, they said I may end up as a linebacker because of how big I can be. Some say receiver, some say safety – they don't know yet. "

Some prospects with the ability to move around favorite a position and remain close-minded but Clark sees things the other way. He thinks the stance led to the offer from the Tide.

"I think it's my will to play anything," said the 2014 standout. "I just go out there and work hard, when you put me out there I'm going to do my best and try to play that position.

"I have been playing receiver, a little linebacker, running back as well. I can move around, I can do a lot of stuff."

Even with another big offer under his belt, the in-state star is taking things slow for now.

Said Clark, "I'm not placing anybody anywhere; I'm taking it for what it is because I have two more years of high school football. I'm not putting anybody first, I'm just trying to get these offers."
