Clark Louisville's latest Butler C.C. target

Last year, Louisville signed Chris Campa and Tyler Jessen out of Butler (KS) C.C. This year, the Cardinals hope to lure Zac Clark, a talented 6'3, 250-pound defensive end who plans to make an official visit to UofL this weekend.

Both Campa and Jessen have made instant impacts for the Cardinals defense this season after transferring to UofL last winter. This weekend, Zac Clark, a former teammate, will make an official visit to Louisville.

In ten games this season, Clark has recorded 70 tackles – fourth-best on a defense that has allowed just 219 yards and 11.7 points per game this season. Clark, a playmaker in the opponent's backfield, also has 16 tackles for loss, 13 quarterback hurries and eight sacks.

That performance has earned him interest from Louisville, Arizona, N.C. State, Boise State and Georgia Southern. A December graduate, Clark will make a decision in the future before enrolling at the school of his choice in January.

"He's pretty open right now with the schools he's looking at," said Butler assistant Aaron Flores.

Clark hopes to lead Butler to back-to-back NJCAA national titles and had a big game with five tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack in the NJCAA regional championship win over Hutchinson.

"He had a great game in our Region VI championship game last weekend," Flores said. "He made a lot of plays for us, was physical and ran to the ball. He took care of business on the front side and back side of plays."
