Clark excited about official visit to IU

Donovan Clark is one of several players on official visits to Indiana this weekend but the difference for him is that he has already give the Hoosiers his commitment. Told that he's looking forward to signing with IU on Wednesday. Here's an update on Clark.

When Donovan Clark committed to Indiana back in July, he was the only defensive back in the recruiting class and the seventh commit overall.

Now the Hoosiers have picked up two other players at his cornerback position in Waynedriko Smith and Tony Fields and there are still defensive backs being looked at in the final weekend before signing day.

But Clark, a three-star corner from Fort Wayne (Ind.) South, has not wavered at all on his commitment. In fact, he said Friday he's looking forward to signing with Indiana more than ever.

Clark in on the IU campus this weekend for his official visit.

"I'm really looking forward to signing and eventually playing at Indiana,'' Clark told "I think it's great that they're going out and beefing up the secondary. I think we're going to have a chance to be really good there.''

Clark said he is planning to have a ceremony at his school on signing day, Wednesday, at 3:15 p.m.

Clark said he has already had an opportunity to meet new IU defensive coordinator Brian Knorr. Knorr and IU coach Kevin Wilson were part of an IU group that stopped by for a home visit shortly after Knorr was hired.

"He seemed like a really nice guy and I was very comfortable with him,'' Clark said. "I really like the idea of going to more of a 3-4 instead of a 4-3. We played both a 3-4 and 4-4 in high school and it really just depends on if you have the right personnel to run the defense. If you do, having more coverage linebackers will only make my job easier.''

One of the things that really interests Clark with Indiana beyond coming to Bloomington play football is the business school. Clark hopes to major in business and join the Kelley School.

"That has always been a big part of my decision to go there,'' Clark said. "I'm really looking forward to spending some time down there this weekend and then to sign next week. Top Stories
