Q: What swayed your decision toward Iowa?
Drew Clark:I talked to the coaching staff at Iowa quite a bit, developed some good relationships with Coach Ferentz and Coach Morgan. I just feel like it's a good fit for me.
Q: Who'd you call, when you made your choice?
Clark:I called Coach Ferentz. I told him I wanted to be a Hawkeye and I guess today was his birthday, he said this was his first birthday present.
Q: Did you speak with any of the other coaches?
Clark:He passed the phone to Coach Morgan, I talked to him for a while, they all seemed real excited. I was excited too.
Q: You've been on vacation for the past week or so, was that helpful to sort things out?
Clark:We usually go down to Branson, Missouri around this time every year. It was a good time to relax, get away from everything, have time to think about it.
Q: You grew up a Hawkeye fan, correct?
Clark:Yeah, my uncle played for the Hawkeyes in the 80s, Craig Clark, he was a tight end when Chuck Long was there, with those guys.
Q: Have you talked much with (former Marion teammate) Allen Reisner during the recruiting process?
Clark:I wouldn't say a lot, but I've talked to him to see how he's doing, and I've seen him at a couple of the scrimmages that I went to in Iowa City.
Q: He had to sweat it out a bit, his offer didn't come until February, is it nice to have it out of the way early?
Clark:It was good to know, and focus on my senior season, help out my team as much as I can.
