Greg Clark signs with Vols

Defensive lineman Greg Clark of Warner Robins, Ga., signed with Tennessee on Tuesday.

The 6-3, 300-pounder helped Northside High School to a 13-2 record this season and a berth in Georgia's Class AAAAA state championship game.

Greg Clark recorded 34 solo tackles, 21 assists and nine tackles for loss as a senior team captain and was named the unit's "Best Defensive Lineman" - quite an honor on this perennial powerhouse squad.

"He's a really talented kid," Northside defensive line coach Ryan Crawford said. "He's not a fast guy, obviously at 300 pounds, but he's such a strong kid. This is a great opportunity for Greg."

Clark was a three-year starter for Northside and sparked the Eagles to the 2007 state championship. This year was supposed to be a rebuilding season under legendary head coach Conrad Nix, but Clark and Northside's defensive unit allowed more than 300 total yards to just one opponent and held five foes to fewer than 200 total yards.

Clark became the 26th member of the Tennessee Vols' 2010 football signing class.
