Clark ready for his second visit to Lubbock
After sending out his junior highlight film to schools across the country, Kyle Clark has quickly become one of the most heavily recruited offensive linemen in the country. Apparently the coaches who watched his film liked what they saw, because schools like LSU, Texas Tech, Arizona, Louisville, and others threw their hats in the ring earlier this year, and there are more offers on the way.
"Recruiting has been absolutely out of control lately," laughed Clark. "Just insane. My coach said that just this weekend, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Minnesota, and Boise State all confirmed that they sent me offers, so I should get those any day now. My coach says there are more schools that have said they'll offer, but he doesn't want to tell me until they actually send the letters, so I don't know who exactly that is."
With so much attention being thrown his way, Clark's travel plans reflect his popularity. Having spent last weekend at Oklahoma State's spring game, the Clark family will turn around on Friday morning and make their way to another spring game.
"We'll be heading out to Lubbock on Friday morning," he explained. "We're going to be there all weekend and I'm really excited about it. On Friday, we're going to get a full academic tour for my parents with Coach Mainord and the academic advisor, so that way we can just concentrate on the Junior Day and the Spring Game on Saturday."
Though he's already been to one Texas Tech junior day, Clark is excited to see the Red Raiders in action during this trip.
"I'm really excited for the spring game," explained the four-star prospect. "I want to watch their offense and how they work up close. I know they're getting a lot of attention because of how good they're going to be, so I kinda want to see that for myself. I also want to talk to Coach Moore a little bit more and see him coach the O-Line."
Clark, who maintains that he still holds Tech as one of his leaders, says he's not sure what the weekend holds, but says there is a possibility he'll walk away from the recruiting process altogether this weekend.
"I still do like Tech a lot and I've always liked them a lot, that's been really constant," said Clark. "It really just depends on what my parents say after they've seen it all. I already have an idea in my head of how I like Tech, but I want to see what my parents think of the academic side of things and I want them to see how Tech is one of the best academic schools in the Big 12 and has one of the best graduation rates in the country. After they've seen everything and we've checked it out then we'll see where I stand. I am just excited to be making the trip and we'll see what ends up happening."
