Florida WR makes a Commitment

<b>Patrick Clark</b> is a big play wide receiver from Florida that had several offers to choose from, and he made his decision this week.

Georgia Tech has dipped back down into Florida to add a wide receiver commitment. Patrick Clark is a big play athlete from Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, FL that has cast his lot with the Yellow Jackets.

"I committed to Georgia Tech on Thursday," said Clark. "I'm going there on January 9th for an official visit. I've been to Atlanta and seen the campus before, but this will really by my first time to really tour Georgia Tech."

What made Clark decide on a school that he had not seen much of to this point?

"The first reason would be the academics; it's a good overall school. The second reason is that I would be given a chance to play early. They're recruiting me to play wide receiver."

Clark is going to get a chance to play wide receiver after doing a little bit of everything this season for Mandarin.

"I played receiver, running back, corner, and kick and punt returner.  I had six touchdowns receiving, three rushing, and two on returns this year. on defense, I had 2 interceptions."

Clark chose Georgia Tech over offers from Ole Miss, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, and North Carolina. He is a very good all-around athlete that also plays basketball and runs track. His personal best in the 100 meters is "10.8 or 10.9".
