We turned things around this year and went 8-3 and made it to playoffs, said Klock. I went down with an injury in Week 7, broke my foot. I'm still in a boot now, so I missed the rest of the year but we definitely had a much better year.
Klock has been making several visits to schools, visiting Pittsburgh and Rutgers twice and Maryland and Penn State in October. Klock visited the Terps for their game against N.C. State and left with a positive impression.
When I went to Maryland I really liked it, he said. Taking the tour ahead of time was really nice, and the game came down to a field goal at the end and I they lost by one but I really liked it there.
The Terps also stood out compared to some of the other schools on his list.
I was at Penn State the week before that, but I definitely liked Maryland a lot better than Penn State or some of the schools that I've been at, he said.
Klock spoke highly of the Terps and Rutgers' move to the Big 10.
I think it's really cool with 14 or 15 teams now in the Big 10 I think it'll be an extremely competitive conference, he said.
I'm just not a fan of all the coaches moving, he continued. I know at Maryland the coaches are staying true to their promise, but I've watched other schools that are moving around.
Klock has been in contact with the offensive coordinator and a few other coaches at Maryland, but hasn't had a coach come to have a meeting with him yet.
At 6'4 and about 250 pounds, Klock uses his physical presence on the field to his strength.
Blocking is definitely my strong suit, he said. I can get in kids ways and take them down to the ground.
He also noted his overall knowledge of the game, noting that he knows what each of his teammates is doing on every play and has even played every position except center and guard.
Klock doesn't pattern his game off of anyone in particular, but said that he's inspired watching Rob Gronkoswki play.
Klock, who said he takes his grades seriously, is looking for a good academic school but also a program where he'll have a good relationship with the coaches.
The type of offense that they run and how they would use me in the offense will matter, he said.
