This is from a poster on VN who broke the news that Clark was on campus 2 hours before 247 and he said this before the article was released today on 247.

Quote:
Obviously this is just assumption, but they were giving him the "commit tour" at the Thornton Academic Center today. They were using the "this is where you will be doing X, this is X he will be your counsellor, etc.

Sounded like it was in the bag to me but once again, assumption.

The difference here is that The Dodie is something to be proud of and is a selling point to recruits (parents, especially)!

When you have a huge need for OT, this is a pretty big loss. It gets even bigger when you consider that it's unclear where we stand right now with McGirt and Merrick and it's unclear if Bailey (if he comes here) will be a tackle or guard.

I hope he understands UT already has a couple of OT on board. Good luck to him. I still don't understand why kids say things like I'm done with visits, then take 2 more. This is why it's hard for us to pull Virginia kids that live in the western part of the state. Much closer to K-ville than Columbia.

Whether or not he understands it he's still going there which means they did a better job of recruiting him than we did. Just like Derell Scott, he obviously doesn't care about the depth chart.

Must be nice to be loading up on OT talent.

Stewart will be a G. Jones probably will be a T. Clark is most likely a T. If we land Richmond he'd be a T too.

Believe this thing is playing out just as we thought. Clark set a short term date to announce his decision because he had made up his mind. UT starts slow playing him & other schools now become serious contenders according to some of the recruiting experts. UT comes back, firms up the offer, gets him to come back on campus, & convinces him he is a high priority (when he wasn't 2 wks ago). I believe he goes where he intended/or wanted to go all along & this one's over unless UT bails on him later. That could absolutely happen & has happened especially at a place like UT where they offer 300 kids a year.

"Believe" being the critical word because recruiting is never really over until the papers are signed.

Does he trust Butch Jones not to oversign and him end up w/o a scholly because Jones takes other OTs?

I don't think they would drop him, but I also don't believe that they're going to stop going after that in-state OT, Drew, either.

He probably ends up there but they would drop him like a bag of dirt if they needed that scholly for a player higher on their board. They cull recruits like crazy.
