One junior college prospect is ready to get to Knoxville, well almost.
Baton Rouge, La., native and cornerback Dave Clark was planning on arriving in Knoxville at the end of next week to begin classes on Rocky Top. There appears to be a minor delay in those plans.
According to Clark, he is still working on gathering all of his transcripts and grades, including having to retake one class, before he can enroll at Tennessee.
"One course I took has to be taken over," Clark told InsideTennessee.com on Saturday evening. "I'm in the process of retaking it now. I should arrive in Knoxville in July ready to go for the second summer session. I can't wait to get there."
Clark is very happy about the opportunity that is in front of him.
"I'm very excited," Clark said. "I can't wait to get there and finally be a Volunteer. It's a golden opportunity to play in the SEC and play big time football. It will also give me a chance to accomplish my goals in life."
Clark has been off a semester preparing for the next journey in his life, but that hasn't kept the impressive athlete from working out.
"I can say I'm in the best physical shape of my life," Clark explained. "I have been working out a lot. I'm ready to go where that's concerned."
Clark, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound corner, committed and signed with Kansas before the Jayhawks coaching change. He had numerous other offers.
