Clemson looking to make Clark's short list

April 23, 2014 

OL Austin Clark of Lexington, VA has seen his offer list grow to more than 15 and Thursday he plans to reveal on Twitter his final seven list. Clemson and USC are among his offers and have been active with Clark in recent days.

"I talked to (Clemson recruiter) coach Caldwell on Twitter and Facebook and (USC recruiter) and coach Elliott was by the school the other day," Clark said. "I didn't talk to him but I did talk to him on Twitter. Both of them remain very interested. I'm really high on their boards and they would like to have me."

Clark visited USC for a spring practice session. He was at Virginia Tech last week and he's also been to Ohio State. Recruiters from Miami and Virginia are coming in this week to see him. He also has offers from Tennessee, Penn State, North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, Maryland, Temple, Rutgers, West Virginia and Vanderbilt.

"I pretty much know who the seven are going to be," Clark said. "The main thing I was able to think about was how I feel not just around the coaches and the football side of thing but also more of the school side of things like class size, majors and professors."

Clark plans to release his information via Twitter sometime Thursday afternoon.
