Its Still Early for Tony Clark

Profile - Tony Clark

Clark's first Junior Day was a trip to Athens to visit Georgia. "I got to talk to all the coaches for the first time. Clark is being recruited by Coach Tony Ball. "I had a nice time and enjoyed the visit there."

Tony is now deciding where to take his next visit. "I am deciding on whether to visit Georgia Tech or Florida and I will know for sure some time next week on which one I will attend."

Both in-state schools are recruiting Clark hard. "Coach Lamar Owens from Georgia Tech and Coach Tony Ball are recruiting me." Clark has gotten along well with Owens. "He is young and I can relate to him. He is easy to talk to and when it is time to get down to business he does."

Besides Georgia Tech and Georgia, Clark is hearing from Florida, Vanderbilt and Clemson. He is not ready to name a leader from that group. "It is too early to tell which school is the best fit for me."

Clark knows that the two in-state schools run different offenses but that will not affect his recruitment. "My high school runs the same offense that Tech does and I fit it well but I could also see myself in the same type offense that Georgia runs."

In addition to attending some Junior Days, look for Tony to attend some spring practices. "Both Tech and Georgia have asked me to come up to their practices so I will be going to both of them."

Clark is spending his offseason working on making improvements to his game. "I'm working on speed drills and I am working with my quarterback because we are putting in a two back shotgun offense to go with our triple option offense." Coffee County plans to run each 50% of the time.
