Clark Shines At Michigan

The Cleveland Glenville TE/WR made his way back to Ann Arbor to participate in Michigan's annual 7 on 7 tournament and came away as one of the top prospects in the camp. He caught the Wolverines eyes, but did they catch his? GoBlueWolverine has the latest.

Frank Clark, the 6'3" 210 pound hybrid tight end and receiver from Cleveland Glenville, came to Ann Arbor over the end of the past week and put on a truly dominant performance in Michigan's annual 7 on 7 tournament.

"It was great," Clark told GoBlueWolverine. "The University of Michigan is a great university. It was my second time visiting there, and I was up for the Michigan Showcase. It's a great campus, and their big on academics. The first things the coaches asked me was about my G.P.A. and did I take my test yet. Most of them were very surprised that I have a 3.8 and scored a 19 on my first time taking the test, and I'll be taking it again."

"Then I just brought my skills and went with it," Clark continued. "So all the coaches started talking to me and they could see it. Even the receivers coach kept asking me and saying you can do that over here but can you do that in the Big House? It was basically hinting on whether they might offer me. When I talked to Rich, he was a cool coach. He was different from what I thought. I thought he'd be all up tight and mean, but he was a cool coach and led a family oriented atmosphere. He even had a player with him driving around with him in his golf cart. He only wants the best for everyone."

With the Wolverine coaches paying a keen eye on Clark, the Buckeye State prospect took the opportunity in front of him and seized it.

"I actually had a great performance. I believe it was my best 7 on 7 and I've been to plenty with the Raw Talent tour. I was pretty calm and there was great competition there. We competed as a team and had some great individual performances as well."

While coaches can't offer at camps, the will convene and discuss what took place, and Clark will almost surely hear from the Wolverines again.

"The receiver coach asked me my name and all that stuff so I'm sure I'll be found and contacted through that. And Rich asked me my name and that stuff too."

Should the Maize and Blue extend an offer, they will firmly plant themselves into the race for Clark.

"Michigan would definitely be in the running. I'm very big on academics and so is my family. It's closer to where this side of my family stays. But at the end it comes down to my decision."

In the meantime, the short three hour drive from Cleveland to Ann Arbor is one Clark plans on making, to take in the atmosphere of Ann Arbor when the town is bustling.

"I'll be able to come in on visits. I think it's a great college and I want to see more of it during the school year and things of that nature."

Clark, who holds four FBS offers, does have a current leader, but that could change as more colleges and universities start to turn up the heat on him, including the Wolverines.

"Right now, Cal is obviously my number one choice. My two major colleges are North Carolina and Cal right now, and I like Cal just a little bit more. Basically if Michigan were to offer, they'd be up there in that running. I would just have to look into everything and make a decision. I can hold off on committing. It just takes a lot as a process. My plan is to check out everything. I don't want any late offers coming in that would prevent me from looking into those colleges."
