Clark Likes West Coast Swing

Glenville (Calif.) receiver/tight end Frank Clark talks about his visit to California with the Raw Talent Tour, including his time in Westwood at UCLA's 7on7 Tournament...

Glenville (Calif.) receiver/tight end Frank Clark said his experience with the Raw Talent Tour was unlike anything he's gotten to do.

Clark and several other prospects from Ohio took to the road to hit several camps across the country, including a trip to the Golden State, and the trips proved very fruitful for Clark, a 6-3, 220-pound receiver who may end up as a tight end in college.

Eastern Michigan was his lone offer prior to the trip, but two more schools offered him and more said they were interested.

"I went to North Carolina and they offered me as an athlete," said Clark. "Then Cal offered me as a receiver after I went to their camp. I also went to UCLA for the 7on7. They didn't offer me but Coach (Daronte) Jones and Coach (Reggie) Moore said they were watching me real close."

Clark said the visits to each of those schools have him a good perspective on college life.

"The North Carolina campus was really nice, real beautiful and I liked all of their facilities," said Clark. "Then we went to Cal and they told us they were redoing all of their facilities and the campus is in a really cool area. UCLA's campus was one of the nicest ones I've ever seen, but we didn't get to see their stadium since they play off-campus (in the Rose Bowl)."

Clark said he's hoping to see all three schools again come fall.

"I'm definitely going to take my official visits, all of them, and I know I want to go to Cal, North Carolina, UCLA and Michigan, and maybe some other ones. But I want to go on all of them," said Clark.

Clark said that North Carolina and Cal were his two leaders, with the Golden Bears in the lead.

"I like Cal a little more because of how they'd use me in the offense," said Clark.

He also said an offer from Michigan and UCLA would put them squarely in the mix.

"If Michigan or UCLA would offer me, they'd be right there with Cal and North Carolina, but those two schools right now (Cal and North Carolina), are hard to beat," said Clark.

Academically, Clark is in fine shape, with a 3.7 GPA and a 19 on the ACT.

He's a three-star tight end nationally by Scout.com.
