Steven Clark Announcement Primer

Guntersville (Ala.) Brindlee Mountain defensive tackle Steven Clark announces his commitment today.


Steven Clark, two-star defensive tackle, only had non-power five FBS and FCS offers in the summer. In June, Clark decided to stay close to home and committed to the South Alabama Jaguars.

Things stayed quiet for Clark over the next several months. Then, ACC squad Syracuse saw his tape and moved quickly to offer him after they visited him at his school. Only a few days later, Clark decommitted from South Alabama.

Shortly after Syracuse starting showing interest, it seemed to be a three team race with Western Kentucky also in the mix.

About a month later, Clark officially visited Syracuse and declared the Orange his leader afterwards.

Another power five program, Minnesota, was starting to get involved. They did not offer when they visited him this week, however. Clark decided he was ready to make a decision, and Western Kentucky had fallen out of the race. He announced that he would declare his commitment on Thursday.


Clark will announce at his decision at Brindlee Mountain High School at 2:15pm eastern (1:15pm central). He is deciding between Syracuse and South Alabama. His mom and coach are expected to attend.


Clark is described as an athletic, quick and strong defensive tackle that has strong technique with his hands and pad level by his Brindlee Mountain head coach. His skill set is a perfect fit for a one gap, 4-3 base system. He has played defensive end in high school in addition to tackle, and is therefore comfortable rushing the passer as well as playing the run.
