UCLA Interested in Ohio Athlete

Frank Clark is a 6-3, 215-pound athlete who can play multiple positions, and he's getting attention from across the country. One Pac-10 school has already offered...

Frank Clark is basically a coach's dream, because he can play nearly any position on the football field at a high level, and the Cleveland Glenville senior is off to a strong start to his senior season.

Clark, 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, shined last summer on the camp circuit as an offensive player, at both wide receiver and tight end, but so far this season he is starring at linebacker.

His play has been instrumental in Glenville's two impressive wins, over nationally regarded Indianapolis Warren Central and Palm Beach (FLA) Dwyer.

"This was a great win for us, beating Dwyer, especially after beating Warren Central last week," Clark stated. "I think I've played well both weeks, especially against Dwyer as I get used to playing outside linebacker. I would like to play more offense, but I'll do whatever my coach wants from me."

Clark has attracted scholarship offers, and he's hopeful more should be on the way, as his senior film makes the rounds.

"I have offers from North Carolina, California, Eastern Michigan, Toledo and a few more," he explained. "I've gotten a lot of calls this week, from schools like Michigan, Michigan State, UCLA, LSU and Ohio State. I'd love to have an offer from any of them, especially UCLA, because I loved it out there. I was very surprised when LSU called me, because I had never heard from them at all. I would definitely visit LSU on an official."

He also took the time to discuss two of his favorites, Cal and North Carolina.

"Those are my two favorites right now of the schools that have offered," he added. "Cal and North Carolina are both known for their academic reputations, not just football, and that means a lot to me too. I could play a lot of different positions for each school, and it does not matter to me. I just want to play."

"At the end of the day I'm going to be listening to my head coach and my parents about making a decision," he said. "I've been to both schools and I like them both a lot. It's going to be a hard decision trying to figure out where to take official visits. I've been to Michigan, UCLA, North Carolina State, Michigan State, Eastern Michigan, USC and Oregon already. I will schedule my visits in November."
