But there are similarities with the six schools.
"There's a common theme," Clarke said. "They are all good academic schools, have great defensive line coaches, and they're all teachers, which fits me. There are more categories, but it's a combination of good academics, good D-line coaching, great head coaching and then a close proximity.
"Besides Miami, everyone else is within a close range where my parents can get there and I can get home in a quick amount of time."
Clarke also discusses what he liked about each of the six schools:
Miami: "It's a great football school, especially defensive line-wise. They have a great history, a great atmosphere, and it's a great school."
North Carolina: "Great campus, great morals, great head coach (Larry Fedora). He teaches religion as well as football, and more importantly, the academics (are great)."
Penn State: "Coach Larry Johnson is a great defensive line coach. He sees great things in me and says I have a lot of potential. The campus is beautiful, great fans. Academics are outstanding. I just like that school."
Tennessee: "It's a great D-line program. I can come in and start, it's a great atmosphere and great football. D'Andre Payne is recruiting me a little bit. I've been talking to him."
Virginia: "It's a great coaching staff, and then there's a lot of players in the Tidewater area that I'm pretty close with and they are going to be there. I have some players that I would already know and would be there and they can change their program a lot. It's close to home. So, all those things add up."
Wake Forest: "It's a small campus, great academics. It's a great coaching staff, a seasoned coaching staff. They've been through it all. It's a tight knit, close community."
