Former UCLA TE Clark discusses next moves
The last few weeks have been a wild experience for 2015 Rivals100 tight end Chris Clark. The former Avon (Conn.) Avon Old Farms star left the UCLA program and has been at home in New Jersey trying to figure out his next moves. On Tuesday Clark received his official release from UCLA and he has already set up a series of official visits in October.
"I am going to visit Pittsburgh, Virginia and N.C. State in October," Clark said. "I'm giving other schools a week to reach out to me and I'll figure out which schools I'm going to consider."
Clark will be at Pittsburgh on October 9, Virginia on October 16 and N.C. State on October 31 but these aren't the only schools he is considering.
"I'm really looking at schools that fit me closer to home," he said. "I like some of the ACC schools. Maryland is definitely in the mix. I like Pittsburgh a lot too. I like coach Narduzzi. He was one of the guys recruiting me at Michigan State. I do like N.C. State a lot. They were one of my first offers and they've stuck around with me through all this."
Clark, who is hoping to have a decision made by early November, was very high on Michigan State, Ohio State, Notre Dame and was committed to Michigan for a period of time. Those might have been schools Clark would reconsider but UCLA has blocked Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State as transfer possibilities.
When Clark picks a school he will likely have to enroll in January and sit out the 2016 season.
