Clark Talks About Visiting UCLA

Passing tournaments are not typically designed for 6-1, 290 pound defensive tackles. Don't tell that to Rialto (Calif.) Carter lineman Kenneth Clark, who played some linebacker and actually didn't look half bad...

Kenneth Clark is one of the region's top defensive tackles and has a very nice upside to him. He's a strong, physical kid with a motor and just needs work on his technique but that's always the easiest thing for a college DL coach to fix. "I wanted to come out here and bang around a little," Clark said. "It was fun, I enjoyed it. Obviously linebacker is not my real position but I thought it would be good to come out here and show off some athleticism and I think I did that."

On the recruiting front, Clark is now up to eight scholarship offers.

"Nebraska was my most recent offer," Clark said. "I also have Boise State, UCLA, Washington, Washington State, Oregon State, Nevada and Colorado. I've already visited UCLA and USC for Junior Days and Spring practice and I'm going to camp with both in the summer.

"UCLA was cool, a lot of intensity, they were getting after it. Coach Mora is bringing a different edge to the team and I liked it. With USC, it's the same thing, they're very competitive and they have the best players in the country. If you want to start there, you know you have to compete against the very best but that's how you get better."

Clark said he has no plans to make an early decision and wants to take all his official visits.

"I would like to wait until Signing Day if I can," Clark said. "I know I want to visit Nebraska, Colorado, Boise State and maybe Oregon if they offer. USC and Oregon are two schools who haven't offered that I'm hoping will do so. USC said if I do well at their camp, I could get an offer so we'll see where things go with that."
