A 6-foot-6, 245-pound raw athlete, Will Clarke wasn't even on any school's radar, let alone the myriad of recruiting folks, until he tore up the competition at the Pittsburgh Prospects Camp in June. The Panthers offered him almost immediately, and most expected a quick response.
Instead, Clarke began to gain interest from other schools and was in camps at West Virginia and Akron, which also offered and strongly pursued him. Still, Clarke chose Pitt ahead of the Mountaineers and Zips.
Clarke is an amazing athlete that reminds a lot of people of current Panthers defensive end Greg Romeus, a redshirt sophomore, but Clarke has been playing football a while longer than Romeus. He also played tight end for Allderdice and led the Dragons to the Pittsburgh City League title game last year.
