The 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect holds offers from Georgia, Nebraska, and Arizona State, among others, and reports interest from other schools like Alabama and LSU.
Members of the Red Raider coaching staff dropped by on Monday to visit the Riverdale Rebel, who also visited with coaches from Oklahoma and Kansas State. The Tech coaches had good things to say about the prospect.
"It went real well. The Texas Tech coaches came, Arkansas, Kansas State, and Oklahoma. (The Texas Tech coaches) introduced themselves, talked to me, told me how much they liked me, things like that."
"They really like my speed and the way I use my hands on the field. They said they would offer me, but they want to see more of what I can do this spring."
Clarke was teammates with 2015 five-star LSU signee Donte Jackson last year. It was down to the wire in January with Jackson's recruitment between Georgia and LSU, and it looks like another battle between those two schools will take place for the services of Clarke. Georgia has already offered, and Clarke thinks an LSU offer is on the way.
"I want to go to the school that feels most like home to me. It would be nice to stay at home and play in the state, but I've got to go out and see what other colleges have to offer me."
Tech is squarely in the mix for the pass rusher, as he will try to set up an unofficial visit to Lubbock this summer.
"Yeah I'm going to LSU again, I'll be in Georgia, I might come visit Texas Tech, Alabama, and as of now that's what I have."
With over a year and a half until he has to sign with a school, Clarke has plenty of time to make a decision. However, two schools are standing out to him at the moment.
"I do have two favorites. Right now my favorites would probably be LSU and Georgia, but I don't have an official top set of schools."
The highly sought-after recruit holds offers from Georgia, Arizona State, Tulane, Nebraska, Idaho, and Cincinnati. He reports interest from Arkansas, Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Kansas State, Ole Miss, and Texas Tech.
