TE Chris Clark of Avon, CT has been committed to Michigan since the summer but concern about the future of the coaching staff there has him looking around again. And one place he’s looking is USC. Clark has set an official visit with the Gamecocks for January 23rd.
He also set official visits to Southern Cal November 29th, Texas December 5th and North Carolina January 16th. He originally committed to the Tar Heels before backing off that and pledging to the Wolverines.
“I’m concerned about the Michigan staff,” Clark said. “I’m pretty convinced coach Hoke will be fired. They have a new AD and he will have a new vision. But I still feel good about Michigan. I’m still somewhat committed. We’ll see what happens. I’m just living in the moment.”
USC recruiter GA Mangus has continued to recruit Clark despite the pledges elsewhere and that persistence has paid off with renewed interest from the big tight end.
“I’ve been talking to coach Mangus a bunch,” Clark said. “He was at my game Saturday. We’ve been talking a lot. They are losing a couple of tight ends after this year, so it’s a great opportunity to play early. And it’s the SEC.”
Clark has never visited USC. This season he had over 40 catches for over 600 yards and 8 touchdowns.
