Decision Date set for Tyler Clark?

Georgia was the second school to offer Tyler Clark a scholarship and the Dawgs are first on his list of favorites. That is a good thing because the four-star defensive lineman could make his decision within the next month...

Is it that time for Tyler Clark?

Does he have the scholarship offer that he wants? Does he know what school he wants to attend after he finishes high school at Americus-Sumter (Ga.) in 2016?

If he does not know for certain, he is getting very close.

"Right now I am planning to commit on May 15," said Clark. "That is the day of our spring game and I am thinking about announcing my decision at halftime. I think I am pretty-much ready to announce my decision."

Georgia has had Clark on their campus three times in 2015 and the 6-foot-4, 292 pound defensive lineman has the Dawgs at the top of his list.

"I have been to Georgia a lot this year and the last time I was there, it was G-Day -- I loved it. The fans were great that day, the atmosphere was cool, and Georgia just has a great feel.

"I like the coaches, I like the school, I like the environment, and I love the fans there."

The explosive four-star prospect actually grew up in a Bulldog home. That only helps UGA. Auburn has had Clark and his family on their campus too and the Tigers are No. 2 on his list, but playing for the home-state school is very appealing to him.

"I grew up a Georgia fan and my parents are Georgia fans, so if I go there, they would be very excited and it would be great because they could be at most of the games. Being close to home is important, so it would be great to still be playing in Georgia. I am from Georgia, so it would be cool to play for UGA too."

A coach on the UGA staff that many look up to and really respect is Tracy Rocker, the defensive line coach. Clark feels there is none on Rocker's level.

"Coach Rocker is the best coach ever," said Clark. "I like how he coaches and how much he knows about the game. Off the field he is cool, but on the field he means business. He has done so much and he knows so much, so it would be great to play for the best coach."
