"They stand No. 1 right now because I haven't visited other places," Clark said. "Once I see other places then I can make my decision. What stood out about Louisville was how cool the coaches were. I know it was a visit but I could just get from their vibe that they were cool coaches and really care about the players."
Having a good relationship with his coaches is a key consideration for Clark, a former high school star from Palm Beach, Fla.
"You want to go somewhere you will be comfortable and have a good relationship with the coaches," Clark said. "That's one of the biggest things that makes me like Louisville. All the players told me they get along great with the coaches. To me, that's one of the biggest things that impressed me."
Though he didn't play for Strong while at Florida, he was recruited by Louisville's head coach during his prep days at Dwyer High School.
"I liked everything I saw," Clark said. "I liked the city, everything about it. We were recruited by those coaches when they were at Florida so that's why they're already familiar with us. That's why they wanted us to come to Louisville."
Clark's previous relationship with Strong's coaching staff could help UofL win a recruiting battle with West Virginia.
"That's going to be a big part of the decision," Clark said. "I like Coach Strong and his staff. The players are also cool. There were a lot of South Florida players on Louisville's team and it seems like a great place. I felt like it was a home away from home."
Clark, who is thinking about visiting West Virginia before making his decision, could provide a big speed boost for UofL's offense.
"I could come in and they could use my speed," Clark said. "They need some speedy guys like me to come in and play. They see me being an offensive player for them but if they need me to go on the defensive side of the ball I'll do whatever to get on the field."
