Four-star WR Clark gives visit a '10'
By Derek Tyson
Nebraska was great for a Florida receiver who is narrowing his choices. But there are still visits to take and a potential new suitor as well.
Four-star wide receiver James Clark (New Smyrna Beach, Fla./New Smyrna Beach) took an official visit to Nebraska this weekend. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound athlete said he enjoyed his time in Lincoln.
Four-star receiver James Clark visited Nebraska and still has visits to Clemson and Florida to take.
"My visit went pretty well, " Clark said. "I enjoyed the campus, I had a fun weekend. I got to see the staff, players and the facilities. It was a great experience."
While on his visit, Clark had a chance to speak with Nebraska head coach Bo Pellini.
"I spoke with coach Pellini a few times," he said. "He's a good guy. He was just telling me that he would be straightforward with me and if I came there, he would make me the best player that he could."
Overall, Clark said he was very impressed with what Nebraska had to offer.
"I would probably give it a 10 honestly," he said. "The highlight of the visit for me was just walking in to the stadium. It was probably the biggest stadium I have ever seen."
With official visits set up to Clemson next week and Florida the week after, where do the Cornhuskers stand for the talented pass-catcher?
"I'm not really sure where I would rank them because I still have visits left still," Clark said. "But there is definitely a chance I could end up at Nebraska."
After returning from his trip to Nebraska, Clark received a call from Ohio State tight ends coach Tim Hinton. Clark said he is intrigued by the Buckeyes.
"They called me kind of late," Clark said. "They just wanted to see if I had any interest. I don't know -- It's something I'll have to think about. There's a chance I could visit there, but I'm not sure right now."
Clark is unsure of a decision date and claims he has no leader at this point.
