"It's not a knock on Seattle at all, but I just felt more comfortable living in Los Angeles for the next four years of my life and then after football as well. I want to live in Southern California after I'm done playing football and the alumni support is obviously much stronger for UCLA than Washington."
The 6-2, 285-pound Clark said it wasn't just staying close to home that sealed the deal for the Bruins.
"I have a real good relationships with the UCLA coaches, they have been recruiting me for a long time," Clark said. "I really like Coach Martin and Coach Mora and I talk with Angus (McClure) a lot too. I called Coach Martin to tell him first and then he put Coach Mora on three-way.
"Coach Mora was riding his bike and said he had to pull over because he was so excited. I really had a good time at the UCLA Camp and it just felt like home to me. Players always talk about writing about pros and cons and weight who has the best this or that but at the end of the day, it always comes down to where you're most comfortable and for me, that was definitely UCLA. I think we'll have a strong class coming in and I'm excited to be a part of it."
