Clark planning Louisville visit this summer

New Orleans (La.) Warren Easton wide receiver Darrell Clark picked up a scholarship offer from Louisville last week. Cardinal Authority has the latest from the three-star prospect.

Last week the University of Louisville extended scholarship offers to 6 athletes at New Orleans (La.) Warren Easton High School, including one to three-star wide receiver Darrell Clark.

"It was exciting to know that a great school like Louisville has offered me," Clark told Cardinal Authority. "It's a really nice offer. I've watched their games and I thought it was a great school. I don't know that much else about them yet, but I'm going to find out more soon."

Clark who said there is "some talk" of he and some of this teammates continuing on to the same college and added that it was an exciting moment when Louisville offered him and five of his teammates.

"It was great for all of us," he said. "Not all of us had an offer yet, so it's a great opportunity for all us."

Louisville joins Clemson, Memphis, Missouri, Nebraska, Tulane, and Utah to offer Clark. LSU, Southern Miss, Texas and West Virginia are among the others expressing a high interest in the 6-foot, 165-pound receiver.

"I think it is going well right now and I'm enjoying it," Clark said of the recruiting process. "I was injured as a junior, so I think it'll get even bigger during my senior season."

Clark currently claims no favorites, but plans to make some visits this summer to help him gain a better understanding of some of those that have extended offers.

"This summer I think I'm going to three schools," he said. "I'm planning on going to Clemson, Missouri and Louisville."
