With 26 scholarship offers already on the table, Avon, Conn., Old Farms High School tight end Chris Clark added the University of Louisville to his list on Saturday.

"I had talked to them a bit before," Clark said. "The tight end coach (Pete Nochta) and I started talking and we had a long talk today.

"He said the tight end was going to be a focal point of the offense again this season.

Clark said he knows of U of L coach Bobby Petrino and his history with the position that he wants to play. The 6-foot-6, 247-pound Clark is ranked as the No. 4 tight end in the country by Scout.com in the Class of 2015.

"I know about coach Petrino," he said. "He had a Mackey Award winner with D.J. Williams at Arkansas and I know he likes to use the tight end position a lot in the offense."

Clark finished his junior season with 40 catches for 430 yards and seven touchdowns.

While he isn't ready to make any decisions, Clark said he hopes to visit U of L in June. He has plans to visit the following schools in March: Ohio State, North Carolina, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and either Iowa or Tennessee. He has offers from those schools and also from Georgia, Miami, Pittsburgh, Oregon, Arkansas, South Florida, Arizona State and Texas Tech along with several others.

"It's going to be tough (to narrow it down)," Clark said. "But I have a really good support system around me. I will make the right decision in the end for me."
