Clark's in cruise control

Miami has been on top of Khairi Clark's list for some time, but he may not be close to pulling the trigger any time soon.

"All is still the same right now," Khairi Clark told Scout. "Miami is still on top and they are in the lead."

Why are the 'Canes on top?

"I grew up loving them, I like how their coaches care about the players, and they really keep it real with me. They have always been the school I watched and pulled for."

There is no number two or three school right now, but there are a handful of schools that this five-star defensive tackle is still considering.

"Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Nebraska, and Notre Dame as other schools I have interest in," said the Scout 300 member.

It appears any school not Miami has a lot of ground to make up if they want to sign Clark in February.

As much as he likes UM and as long as he has had the Hurricanes as his top school, the 6-foot-2, 320 pound junior out of Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna does not plan to make a decision any time soon.

"I am going to wait it out. I will commit late in the process and I will probably take some visits. I just don't want to commit too early. I will probably commit close to signing day."

Clark is the No. 1 defensive tackle in the country and the No. 18 overall prospect.
