Clark taking his time
Two-way standout Donovan Clark of Fort Wayne (Ind.) South Side saw three coaches stop by to visit him on Tuesday. "This week, [Purdue assistant] (Jafar) Williams, [Indiana assistant] (Seth) Littrell, and [Notre Dame assistant] (Mike) Elston came to see me," Clark said. "Purdue is big on getting a good slot wide receiver in their class because that fits with their offense. They are mainly recruiting me at slot. They want to get me on campus and see me play before they offer." Right now, Clark has offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Indiana, Ohio, and Toledo, and he's staying open to all of those schools at this point in his recruitment. "Indiana is recruiting me as an athlete," Clark said. "They said they probably wouldn't know where they were playing me until after I enrolled and started practicing. To me, it doesn't really matter where I play, but I don't have too much experience at wide receiver, so that is something I need to learn." "Notre Dame just wants to get me on campus," Clark said. "Coach Elston wants to see me play because he says that [Notre Dame signee] Jaylon Smith is high on me." Clark's most recent visit was to Michigan State, and he is expecting a visit from their coaches sometime during the evaluation period. "Michigan State was pretty good, it was about like a normal visit," Clark said. "They are for sure recruiting me as a cornerback." Though Clark doesn't have any visits set up in the near future, he has a few schools he's planning to hit during summer camp. "I'll camp at few places," Clark said. "Right now, I plan on camping at Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Indiana, Purdue and North Carolina State if I can get to all of those places." Clark is a three-star prospect and is the No. 53 wide receiver in 2014.
