The top tight end prospect in the 2015 class will visit Syracuse

The top tight end from the 2015 class, 5-star Chris Clark, left the UCLA program earlier this month and is looking to visit multiple schools to find a new home. Syracuse will get one of those visits.

Former five star and number one tight end prospect from the 2015 class, Chris Clark, has visits set up with Pittsburgh, NC State and Virginia after decided to transfer from UCLA. He now has a fourth destination on his list of trips before decided where to play college football for the rest of his career. That place is the first school to extend a scholarship offer during his original recruitment, Syracuse. 

Clark told CuseNation.com that he will definitely visit Syracuse and is looking at Sunday, October 4th through Monday, October 5th as his visit date. He is still trying to work that out with his and his parent's schedule, but it seems probably that is when the visit will happen.

Given Clark leaving UCLA due to homesickness, Syracuse makes a lot of sense. Not only is it near his New Jersey home, but it is with a coaching staff which he already has a relationship. 

"They are close to home," Clark said. "They have a couple buddies (Jake PickardAnthony Giudice) who play there. And I really like the direction coach Shafer is taking the program."

Clark said he spoke with head coach Scott Shafer  and offensive coordinator Tim Lester Tuesday morning. Clark said the conversation went very well and it was great to catch up with coach Shafer again.

The interest from both sides is nothing new to CuseNation.com members, who have had the inside scoop on this situation for weeks. You too can be equipped with the best inside information in the business with a membership by CLICKING HERE.
