Clark breaks down recent Pac 12 visits

Rialto (Calif.) Carter defensive lineman Kenneth Clark had his third straight dominant summer camp performance over the weekend and compared his recent visits to UCLA, USC and Washington.

Kenneth Clark has clearly established himself as one the premier defensive tackles in the region. He dominated the UCLA Elite Camp a few weeks ago, drew raves for his showing at USC's Rising Stars Camp and impressed again over the weekend at Washington's Rising Stars Camp.

"I had a great time at the UCLA Camp," Clark said. "I really went to see how Angus (McClure) coaches and what his style is like. I know Coach Mora and Coach Martin pretty well already but I wanted to get to know Angus better and it went really good.

"I learned some new things from him about technique and some pass rush moves, how to use your hips. Overall, it was a good experience and I feel really good about UCLA right now."

USC has yet to offer Clark but several in attendance felt he was the top defensive lineman in the camp.

"The USC camp was real intense with great competition," Clark said. "Coach Orgeron really pushed me and I thought I outshined a lot of the other lineman there that were more highly rated. I just gave it my all and I think my effort just carried me through the camp.

"Right now, I'm really not sure what my status is regarding getting an offer. If I don't get it, it wasn't meant to be. It's a little frustrating waiting around for it but to be honest, I have some other great options and I'm not really worried about it. If it happens, it happens but I'll be fine either way."

Next up for Clark was a visit to Washington where he was unblockable once again. The tackle has the ideal combination of size, strength and quickness that you're looking for and he knows how to play the game and plays it with a high motor as well.

"The Washington camp was really intense too and I really like Tosh (Lupoi) a lot," Clark said. "He's a great coach, very intense and a good teacher. All the coaches had great energy though, I loved the campus and got a great overall vibe from the place.

"I definitely plan to come back and take an official visit there and Washington is on my short list for sure. My top five would be Washington, UCLA, Nebraska, Miami and Cal. I know I'll visit UW, Nebraska and Miami for sure and I can take unofficial visits to the in-state schools."
