Old Farms Tight End Snags USF Offer

Already possessing over a dozen offers, Avon (Conn.) Old Farms tight end, Chris Clark, picked up two more offers on Saturday night.

With numerous scholarships on the table from the likes of Georgia, Miami, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Arizona State, Ohio State and Texas Tech amongst others, Avon (Conn.) Old Farms tight end, Chris Clark, added to his impressive list on Saturday night after receiving scholarship offers from South Florida and Arkansas.

The No. 14 tight end in the class of 2015 by Scout.com, isn't quite familiar with the Bulls, but is aware of how badly he's wanted nearly 1000 miles away in the Sunshine State.

"Honestly, I'm not too familiar with them (USF) and I don't really know much," Clark said. "I just know they're really excited about me and want me really bad."

Bulls' defensive line coach, Eric Mathies, caught Clark by surprise when he offered the scholarship.

Clark, who reports a 4.7 in the 40-yard dash, has itinerary finalized to check out two schools over the next few months.

"Yeah, I am visiting Georgia next week and Ohio State in March," Clark said. "I'm going to visit Tennessee, Arizona state and Miami as well. I am going to see when I can check out some other schools. We'll see about USF."

The possibility of early playing time will be a significant factor in the pass-catching tight ends recruitment.

"I just want to be at a place where I have a chance to play right away," Clark said. "I want to compete as a freshman in an offense where the tight end will be involved in the offense and moved around to create mismatches. I want a honest coaching staff and a great campus as well."

In 2013, Clark hauled in 40 catches for 440 yards and seven touchdowns for the 8-2 Beavers.
