South Carolina landed a major target at a major position of need Thursday evening when class of 2015 four-star offensive tackle Austin Clark (Lexington, Va./Rockbridge County) committed to the Gamecocks on local television.

"The three things I was looking for most in my college decision was how comfortable I was at the school, academics and depth chart," Clark said. "Those are the three things that I really focused on with all four of these schools and just being down there at South Carolina, it gave me a great feel. I really like it down there. Comfortability was great, academics -- they have the No. 1 International Business school in the country -- and depth chart -- the coaches say I've got a good chance to go in there and contribute early."

The 6-foot-6, 297-pound Clark, who is considered the No. 25 offensive tackle in his class in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite, chose the Gamecocks over Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Ohio State, which made up his final group, and numerous other offers.

“They are already ranked seventh in the pre-season and I think they finished fourth last season so they are doing really good in the SEC and I had two amazing visits and it is a place that I really liked,” Clark said of the Gamecocks prior to announcing.

South Carolina defensive line coach Deke Adams and offensive line coach Shawn Elliott tag-teamed Clark's recruitment and hit it off with the Virginia standout, who has a rating of 0.9075 in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite.

"I think they're great guys and also great coaches," Clark said. "Coach Elliott, he's a great offensive line coach. He really knows his stuff. He's the type of coach that will tell you like it is and be honest with you. I really like Coach Adams. He's a real cool guy."

Clark is the 12th commitment to the Gamecocks' 2015 class. With the addition of the state of Virginia's No. 11 overall prospect, the Gamecocks move up to No. 6 in the country in the 247Sports team rankings.
Great pickup.

Nice steal from UTk. Thank goodness the coaches did not listen to all the naysayers! Welcome to the Garnet and Black Mr. Clark!

I am aware. People were saying in the thread that UTk stole him from us when he visited after visiting us. UTk could not have stolen him because they were the favorite until the end. Truthfully we pulled the upset since that is where he originally wanted to go. If he would have committed to them then it would have been what everyone expected from the beginning of the process.

Funny thing, that 2007 class had a 3* WR named Michael Bowman from NC in it as well....We picked up a couple 5*'s and you can see why we are in the midst of the best football ever played in Williams Brice!

Nice work by your coaches recruiting him hard from the get go.

I will follow his career and root for him when he doesn't play the Vols.
