He is rated the 9th best OT in the country. No more visits before his announcement on June 12. This seems to be setting up nicely for us.

According to TBS, he is a take for Tennessee, but it's unclear if they're pushing for him.

Also, he is not taking any more visits before he announces.

I've asked our MODS on VQ to clear up the situation, I let you know if they answer.

I am equally confused/interested in what the hell we are thinking here if we aren't pushing.

Our insiders said it might because of two OT commits already, and in the gem with some other higher rated kids

Here is the answer I got..sounds like they are confused too.

Quote:
That's a good question. If he doesn't visit Tennessee before his announcement I believe he ends up a Gamecock.

I don't think they would turn away his commitment, but I don't know that they are pursuing him as hard as South Carolina, either.

OL Austin Clark of Lexington, VA made his final unofficial visit Saturday before making his announcement on June 12th. Clark made a second trip to USC, one of his final seven schools along with Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Penn State and Ohio State.
Clark made the visit with his father and spent the day with Gamecock offensive line coach Shawn Elliott.
“That was really important to me as far as getting to know him better as a coach,” Clark said. “It was definitely a good day. I got to see a little bit more of Columbia than I did on my last visit. The visit pretty much answered all the questions I had left. His main message to me was I was a top priority for them and they want me to come and man one of the tackle spots for them.”
Clark did not meet with Steve Spurrier who was out of town after attending the SEC meetings in Florida earlier in the week.
Clark plans to narrow his list to four next weekend and the visit to USC appears to have boosted their chances of making the final four.
“They have a really good chance of making it,” Clark said. “I pretty much answered any questions I had left.” He plans to major in business management and he was given plenty of information about the USC business school.
Clark said he remains in touch with his recruiters from the other schools as well. He will announce his decision during the 6:00 PM newscast on June 12th on the local TV station.

Well this is an interesting development.

Said he was done with visits after SC visit then turns around and immediatly goes to VT and Tennessee.

This is going to be an interesting announcement.

So much for us being his last visit before his announcement. That certainly makes things a little different.

Callahan now thinks he is more of an option for UT. Awesome.

I wonder if our coaches were OK slow playing him when it looked like VT and some BIG schools were our biggest competition and now that an SEC East rival is up there we decided to push again?

Wouldn't surprise me. He apparently grew up a UT fan so if y'all push we have no shot.

I'll let you know what they say after the visit.

He very well could be on campus one last time pleading his case as why they should take his commitment as a last ditch effort. If we don't then he could still be y'alls.

Or it could be that we asked him back to try and smooth things over since we slow played him like idiots.

He is on campus today visiting. As we've always said the last few weeks, we will be watching to see if he makes a visit before his decision as that will determine whether or not the Vols are a legit option.

Now, he told several people late last week that he wasn't planning on visiting Tennessee and now he showed up today.

I honestly don't know what to make of it but we will see him Friday in Baltimore at the 5-star challenge and while we will try and talk to him tonight about his visit, I think we will know more this weekend as he will announce his final four there.

I didn't see this visit coming because he told several people, including the guys at our South Carolina site on Saturday once he left there he wasn't taking anymore visits.

There have been mixed signals leading up to his visit today, but I think that's a good thing for Tennessee and Clark. I have always said this is very much between Tennessee and South Carolina, and I had another source this weekend continue to confirm that with me

Sounds like a commitment was made and accepted today, IMO.

247

Quote:
“tennessee being in my top seven, they’re definitely one of my favorites. But going on this visit today really did make me like them even more. … every time i go there, i feel really comfortable there. And each time i come back, i come away liking it more than i did before i got there.”
the 6-foot-6, 297-pound clark recently named a top seven of clemson, ohio state, penn state, south carolina, tennessee, virginia and virginia tech.
He’s not ready to name his four finalists, but he admitted that tennessee “has a really good shot" at being one of them.
Clark said wednesday’s visit — his fifth trip to tennessee in the past year — allowed him “to see a little bit more of the academic side of things” there and spend plenty of time with vols coach butch jones and offensive line coach don mahoney.
“they said that they love the way i play, and they’re hoping i pick tennessee next week,” clark said. “if i pick them, they’ll be real excited about it. That was their main message to me. … i talk to them a lot on the phone, but actually getting to sit down in coach jones’ office and talking face-to-face, that went really awesome.
“they really need some guys (at offensive tackle), and (mahoney) told me that i’d have an opportunity for early playing time there. He’s definitely planning on using me as a tackle.”
