He likes to hit.

Tulane offered on October 24th. So it's a recent offer. Other offers included Troy, ULL and Texas State.

Looks to be a defensive playmaker. I like that. I also like his enthusiasm as he makes a big play. Infectious. Don't know his size, but he looks like he could be a good AAC player.

he looks every bit of six feet tall.

I don't mean this as a slight but I think Clark is a backburner guy. We were after some other in-state safeties so his offer and commitment might be the result of some of those guys crossing us off. Again, that's not a slight. Unless you're Alabama or Ohio State you'd better do your homework and have a solid list of guys after your top guys. I liked Clark's mid-season hudl. He shows off a range of skills in blitzing, tackling, covering, and catching.

We have to get more commitments from players on the radar. The under the radar recruiting has to stop. We can get 20 kids who are on the radar - I have no doubt about it.

With all the recruiting sites and every local newspaper in america covering local kids how can they have so many under the radar players?

So many? Name them. Bakare is one, sure. Other than him everyone committed has at least one FBS offer & only one guy I can think of on the list had only one at the time he committed.

We'd all like to be doing a flashier job but I don't get the concerns. Last year I sort of did and the coaches cleaned a lot of that up down the stretch.

Concern? You haven’t been watching us this year? :-D

Clearly we have a talent deficit with regards to the top third of our Conference. My question with every one of our recruits is do they upgrade the talent on hand.

Which is why I'd like we need to see more recruits choose Tulane over Memphis,UCF, etc than ULL, Troy etc.

Like I tend to repeat.....all I go by is the “Stars” and who else offered or showed interest
