Palm Beach Gardens (FL) Dwyer has become a hotbed of talent for not only the class of 2010, but 2011 as well. At 5-10 and 170-pounds, 2010 cornerback/wide receiver prospect Robert Clark took a trip to Gainesville with teammates and best friends Matt Elam and Gerald Christian.
"We did one-on-ones and I was killing everyone playing wide receiver," he said. "I also played cornerback and did really good there. Coach Gonzales likes me at wideout and Coach Bedford likes me at the corner spot."
Clark is very familiar with Gainesville and has a special tie to the program.
"Deonte Thompson is my god-brother so I am at Florida just about every weekend that I can get up there. He takes me out a lot and shows me around and stuff like that."
Clark ended his junior season with 50 tackles, four interceptions, 500 receiving yards and scored seven touchdowns - two from the defensive side of the ball. He holds offers from Louisville, West Virginia, Iowa State, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Wisconsin, Florida International and Kentucky among others.
"Academics is number one for me wherever I decide to go because no matter what happens with football I want to be able to take care of my family."
On the possibility of continuing his football career with his two best friends, Clark had this to say.
"It would be great to play with Matt and Gerald at Florida. They are always teasing me saying that I am coming to Florida with them and things like that. Those guys are my best friends and we hand out with each other all the time on and off the field."
