Ohio State’s receiving unit just became better.

A late addition to the Buckeyes, James Clark (New Smyrna Beach, Fla./New Smyrna Beach) picked Ohio State Wednesday over Florida and Clemson.

Clark made his last official visit to Columbus, Ohio, and became the third four-star wide receiver to join the Buckeyes in the last week, joining Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto) and Corey Smith (Akron, Ohio/East Mississippi Community College).

As a senior, Clark finished the season with 49 catches for 1,112 yards and added eight touchdowns.

What is the impact of Clark's decision nationally?

Editor’s note: Every Tuesday and Thursday through Jan. 31, GatorNation will break down each position. We’ll look at 2013, of course, but also try to peek beyond next season. Today is wide receiver. We will profile running backs Tuesday.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Two-deep: This is without question the Gators’ weakest position. The group has been below average for three seasons. Redshirt junior Quinton Dunbar, who has 50 career catches, and redshirt senior Andre Debose, a career underachiever with 29 career catches, are the two most experienced players and would likely be the starters if the season started today. Debose is supremely talented but has been hampered by work ethic, attitude and consistency issues throughout his career. Senior Solomon Patton (eight career catches) and sophomore Latroy Pittman (two catches in 2012) would be the backups.

Next up: Sophomore Raphael Andrades, who caught two passes last season, and freshman early enrollee Demarcus Robinson will have every chance to move up the depth chart in the spring. Next to Debose, Robinson is the most talented receiver on the roster.
