Frank Clark Set For Michigan Visit

The Cleveland (OH) Glenville prospect will be taking his likely-final official visit to Ann Arbor this weekend. GoBlueWolverine caught up with him to gauge his feelings on Michigan, the upcoming visit, and an in-home visit from the Wolverines.

Frank Clark, one of the last recipients of a Michigan offer under coach Rodriguez, recently took a visit to the Wolverines' in state rival Michigan State.

"I enjoyed my visit down there," he told GoBlueWolverine. "Coach Dantonio is a great coach and he was telling me how they are going to go up and keep getting better and better."

On deck this weekend is an official visit to Ann Arbor to get the full Michigan experience, but the Wolverines were already in Clark's home Tuesday evening.

"Actually, I just had a Michigan home visit from Coach Singletary. Michigan is definitely still in play and intact and will potentially be a place I play for in the future. At the end of the day it's going to take me getting to know the coaches more, and finding out about them, and seeing if I can trust them with my future."

The Michigan in home visit was quite a positive for Clark, who still holds the Wolverines in high regard after the overhaul of coaching staff in Ann Arbor.

"He (Chris Singletary) talked to me about how Michigan has been looking at me since the Michigan Showcase thing, and that I could be a guy who could immediately contribute to their program. They really enjoy watching my film, and he said the (new) coach watched five plays and said we have to get this guy. Coach Brady Hoke has a great history of turning programs around and he took Ball State to 12th in the nation and things of that nature, and San Diego State from 1-11 to 8-4. He has a nice history of making them better programs. And he's a Michigan guy -- he was there when they won the national championship."

The in home was with only Coach Singletary, and Clark hasn't had a chance to meet the new head man yet, but his high school coach is already on top of that.

"My coach, Coach Ginn, is actually on his way to meeting him right now."

Clark has high expectations for his weekend visit.

"There isn't anything like Michigan. They're saying that Michigan is going to blow my doors away. I want to see coaches who are ready to make an immediate change with the program and turn it around and get down to business. I don't want to go to a program where the players aren't ready to work."

Michigan is in select company for Clark's services come February's national signing day.

"Oh yeah," Clark responded when pressed if the Wolverines have a shot. "I have a top three. It's Michigan, Michigan State and North Carolina, in no particular order."

Barring any last minute changes, the Maize and Blue will be the final stop for the Buckeye State prospect.

"This will probably be my last visit unless I go to Minnesota. I kind of let them (the Gophers) know I was done, but they still want to try and pull the trigger and get me up there."
