Clark Excited About Visit to Iowa State Recruiting Update

Posted Jun 6, 2008

Marion (IA) High School offensive guard Drew Clark will be taking an unofficial visit to Ames on Monday.

"I'll be heading down for the day with my parents," said Clark. "I'm real excited about checking out the whole campus. I plan on majoring in engineering so I'll also get to check out the academic side."

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound offensive guard received his first scholarship offer this week from the Cyclones and said it was a very pleasant surprise. "It feels pretty good. I guess I wasn't expecting it this early but it's really exciting," he said. "My coach showed Coach Petersen my highlight tape and I guess he really liked it because soon after they offered me a scholarship."

Along with Iowa State, Clark said he is being recruited the hardest by Purdue, Iowa, and Kansas. "I'll be going to a camp at Kansas on Saturday and I'll also be attending camps at Purdue and Iowa this summer," said Clark.

Marion Head Football Coach Tony Perkins feels Clark is an even better person than he is a player. "He's a great player but it goes beyond football with Drew. He's got a 4.15 GPA and he's just a morally grounded young man," he said. "He really does everything well. He won the Drake Relays in the shot put and finished second in state in the same event."

Drew is not yet sure when he will make a final decision. "It really depends on when certain offers come. It would be nice to get it over before my season begins in the fall."
