Lark to Visit Berkeley

Bridgton (ME) Academy athlete Jeffrey Lark is originally from Dallas, Texas. The prep school route took him to Maine's Cushing Academy. However, he's recently transferred to Bridgton that will allow him to graduate in December. Therefore, he can enroll in January at his college choice. One school in the running is Cal, where Lark plans to visit at the end of the month…

Jeffery Lark (6-2, 205) has the ability to play multiple positions at the next level. At the Provo Nike Football Training Camp last month, he competed at linebacker, defensive back, wide receiver, and running back. But most schools see him on the defensive side of the ball.

LSU and Utah are recruiting him as a cornerback. Purdue sees him as an outside linebacker. Arkansas and California are recruiting him as a strong safety/outside linebacker.

Lark claims offers from all listed above, save Cal and Utah, and reports a verbal offer from Texas Tech. He visited the Utes while in the state for the NFTC. He's also visited LSU, Purdue, and Arkansas.

"I plan on visiting Cal later this month," said Lark.

While the Golden Bears have not extended an official offer, he remains optimistic. "Honestly, I think they will when I visit," he said.

Lark maintains high interest in Cal and names them along with the Razorbacks and Utah as his favorites.

"Coach Gould is my boy," Lark said of his relationship with Cal RB Coach Ron Gould.

Lark plans to make his decision at the end of the month or in early August. He has completed all 16 of his core classes, but he needs to improve his SAT score. He plans to be a mid-term graduate, which was the main reason he transferred to Bridgton. Cushing was not going to release him in December.

He recorded 57 tackles, 7 sacks, 6 forced fumbles, and 12 pass break-ups last season.
