Lining up camps

Matt Clark from Syracuse (Nebr.) is going to be a player to keep an eye on through the spring and the summer. He clearly has the eye of Nebraska, but will an offer follow? Clark will also be at a number of other camps which could bring in some offers.

Matt Clark is wrapping up his junior year at Syracuse (Nebr.). The 6-foot-5 and 290-pound offensive lineman/defensive lineman also won his second state title as a wrestler.

"I won state in wrestling," Clark said. "We are class B and this is my second state title at 285-pounds. I think that wrestling helps p;laying football because of leverage, quick feet, stay low and with the cardio."

Before focusing on football Clark has another season to go. He will try and make it back to state this year for track. "I throw shot and discus. I went to state last year for track too, but I didn't place."

Clark says that when track is over that he will really start on getting ready for football. He says that he knows where he needs to improve.

"I need to get stronger in my upper body. I lift in the morning and to keep my quickness up I jump rope and sometimes I run sprints too."

Summer plans are being made and it seems that Clark knows only one school for sure where he will go for camp. After that, he says that there are a number of area schools that he's considering going to for camp.

"I am going to camp at Nebraska for sure. There are a lot of others like Kansas State, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas -- schools in the area -- that I am also considering going to camps too as well."

Clark was in Lincoln earlier in February for junior day at Nebraska. He says that since that weekend he's heard from one of the offensive line coaches at Nebraska quite a bit. He also says that he thinks that the Huskers like him better on the offensive side of the ball.

"I have heard a lot from Coach Barney Cotton who is the offensive line coach since junior day," Clark said. "I think that Nebraska likes me more as an offensive lineman than defensive. It doesn't matter to me which position they like me at."
