Clark to decide among four
Notre Dame hosted the nation's No. 3 ranked tight end four-star Chris Clark of Avon (Conn.) Old Farms on Saturday and Sunday. "The visit went really well," Clark said. "I'm so glad I could visit Notre Dame and really see everything that I've heard about it with my own eyes. I just really enjoyed taking it all in. The coaches are great guys and the players are really cool." Clark, a North Carolina commit, has a grandfather and two uncles who attended Notre Dame. He was accompanied on his visit to South Bend by both of his parents. "Sitting in the tight ends meeting was awesome," Clark said. "It's not 'Tight End U' for nothing. Top to bottom there's top competition. Anyone on that roster right now could perform well on the field. It's great to see they only recruit the best of the best at the position, and they want me." Clark is currenttly Notre Dame's No. 1 priority at the position. The Irish plan to take one tight end in the class of 2015. "They (coaching staff) didn't put any pressure on me to commit or anything," Clark said. "They were just really excited to have me on campus." The 6-foot-6, 247-pound tight end committed North Carolina two weeks ago during a visit to Chapel Hill. "That commitment was kind of in the moment," Clark said. "It was a rushed decision that I did on the spot and should have thought about more. I'm not saying I'm not excited about UNC, but I definitely should have visited other schools first." Clark plans to finalize his decision within the next month. "I'm visiting Michigan and Ohio State on April 18 and 19, and then I'm going to make a decision," Clark said. "I don't wait to stretch this out. They're all great schools, so it's going to be where I just feel like I'm meant to be."
