    Clark tore his ACL prior to his freshman year at Independence C.C. and redshirted. He was a December graduate who had committed to Kansas, but sent in his paperwork too late. With the coaching change, Clark has dropped his commitment.

    He is looking at Colorado, Louisiana Tech and Tennessee. He's from Baton Rouge, so LA Tech would be returning home for him, but Dooley and his recruiting coordinator left for Tennessee. Dooley et al are still talking to him, but haven't offered a scholarship to the Vols. CU and LA-T have offered.

    Could this be the rumored 4*?

    Same JUCO as Andre Simmons, so maybe I need to start calling them again. :wink2:

    P.S. Props to BuffinVA for giving me the "heads up" on this one. :thumbsup:

    Clark would be a great get. Both our projected starters will be Srs this year so he'll have two years to unseat the rest of the rather shallow CB pool. Great size and speed.

    Cannot overvalue cornerbacks with coverage skills in our conference. Really hope the staff gets this young man.

    So if he did end up here, would our nickel secondary be known as The Dave Clark Five??? :smile2:

    (Eh, at least DBT will get the reference... :lol:)

    I got it. But only because when I googled "Dave Clark Youtube" I had to sort through a lot of old variety show appearance videos. :bang:

    If my Mom had Dave Clark 5 albums, does that make me younger than DBT?

    Yep. The depth beyond Smith and Brown is just not there. Really hope the staff reels him in because the CB position is so important in the conference.

    Not sounding very promising here. Looks like a Vol in the end.

    Expected, but still hurts. CB recruiting has been a bit spotty the past couple classes.
