Scout.com Scouting Report: DeWain Clark is an interesting quarterback prospect from West Iredell High in Statesville, N.C., with good size and willing to step up in the pocket. Above average arm when he has proper footwork, but he does make a few jump-throws on short and intermediate passes. He may actually throw a better ball rolling out to the right than from the pocket.
