With 20-plus scholarships on the table, Avon (Conn.) Old Farms tight end, Chris Clark, added Cincinnati to his impressive list. In his 2013 campaign, Clark finished the season with 40 catches for 430 yards and seven touchdowns for the 8-2 Beavers. He express his thoughts on the latest offer.
"Feels good to hear from Cincinnati," Clark said. "I've known they've had a great history at the tight end position. To be able to talk with running back coach (Eddie Gran) on the phone was awesome. He mention that the tight end position is very important in the offense. They like to move the tight ends around and use them in different ways, so that's something I'm looking for in a school. So I was excited to receive an offer from them," he added.
Some of Clark's other offers include the likes of Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan Georgia, Miami, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Oregon, Arkansas, South Florida Arizona State, Texas Tech and more. The No. 4 tight end in the class of 2015 by Scout.com, was not quite sure he was on UC's radar.
"Honestly, I hadn't really heard from them (UC) until now," Clark said. "So they were not really on my radar until I heard from them today."
Insider asked what should fans know about the 6-foot-6, 247-pound, four-star tight end.
"I'm very competitive kid," Clark explained. "I have a passion for football and I love the game. When I step on the field, it feels like home to me. I'm a very versatile tight end. I can do many things; play in the slot, put me out wide or in the backfield. I consider myself an athletic guy. I think I have the whole package."
