2015 Standout Clark Recaps Georgia Visit

Avon (Conn.) Old Farms class of 2015 tight end Chris Clark made an unofficial visit to Georgia, and he spoke about the experience with Scout.com.

Avon (Conn.) Old Farms class of 2015 tight end Chris Clark will make a handful or two visits in the next few months, but he now has a measuring point.

Clark, who is 6-foot-6, 247 pounds, made an unofficial visit to Georgia late last week and it went very well.

"The people are so nice down there," Clark said. "All the coaches are real cool. You just feel the vibe of the college and all the people down there. The football is just awesome down there. I felt comfortable being at that school.

"I could see myself there. I have to check out other schools, but it definitely set the bar. I'll be able to compare the other schools to this one because it was such a good visit."

Clark made the visit after to campus after Bulldogs coach Mark Richt made a January trip to Avon Old Farms, where coaches filed through to check out one of the top prospects in the region.

Clark's offer list is approaching two dozen, and just in the last few days he added Penn State, Michigan and Maryland to a list that also includes Ohio State, where he will visit March 21, Miami and the Bulldogs.

But late last week was reserved for a trip to Georgia with his father and sister, and it began with a Thursday evening visit to meet with tight ends coach John Lilly.

"We went to his office and we watched a little tape," Clark said. "They put together a highlight tape of all the great tight ends in the history of the program, so we got to watch that. We chatted a little bit about life stuff, and my dad got to know coach Lilly a little more."

The big day was Friday as Clark spent the day on campus and met with Richt.

"We got the whole tour of everything; the locker room, the facilities, which were awesome," he said. "We got to meet a lot of the coaches, and we spent a lot of time with coach Richt. We spent about two hours with him just talking about stuff.

"He's an awesome guy. I really like him. I think he's one of the best coaches in college football. He's really genuine and really knows his stuff."

Clark also met with academic support folks and spent time speaking with Georgia freshman tight end Jordan Davis before meeting again with Lilly.

"I had dinner with coach Lilly and his wife on campus," Clark said. "My dad paid for it, of course. It was nice to meet her and they have a little kid. He's really cute. I had a good time."
