Clark anxious for Signing Day

It didn’t take Marist, GA offensive lineman Charlie Clark long to commit to Georgia Tech once he had received an offer earlier this month. This past weekend, Clark followed up his commit to Tech by taking his official visit.

The visit reinforced Charlie’s opinion of Tech. “Everything we did just showed me how great of a place Georgia Tech is and that my decision to flip my commitment to Tech was the best decision for me.”

Two things stood out to Charlie on the visit. One was meeting his fellow recruits and the second was getting a chance to watch film with the coaches. “Both line coaches did a great job showing me how they coach the linemen. I liked how both coaches worked together.”

Charlie spent most of his time with Coach Mike Sewak. Charlie is expected to play in the interior of the offensive line and the two talked about those positions. Coach West also talked with Charlie about pass blocking. “He has a great gasp of pass blocking and I liked his approach.” Charlie liked that having two line coaches gives them more time for one on one instruction.

Tech offensive tackle Jahaziel Lee hosted Clark on the visit. The two talked about how Lee was handling his freshman year at Tech. “I loved how he was talking about the school with so much passion. He had a great grasp on the way things are done at Tech and passed that knowledge on to me.”

Lee and Clark also teamed up to spend some time with recruit Zach Quinney and his host Parker Braun. “The four of us had a great time hanging out and talking about our futures at Tech.” Charlie feels the 2017 class is shaping up to be a good one. He was especially excited about the recent commit of defensive lineman Antwan Owens. “You can tell the coaching staff has a great plan and it’s coming together. We are excited about the future for Georgia Tech.”

Charlie’s characteristics have been compared to Parker Braun. The two are great guys off the field but both have that mean streak to get the job done on the field. “I take that as a huge compliment.  I watched Parker and you can see why he was starting as a freshman.” Charlie’s goal is to come in and work hard to be like Braun. He knows that would make Tech a much better football team.

The morning of February 1st Charlie will be signing his letter of intent in a ceremony at the Marist media center. “The days until signing day can’t go by fast enough for me.  I’m anxious for signing day to get here.” Top Stories
