Clark was a high school superstar last season, a free safety who put up very good numbers and made his opponents look downright silly at times. He hit a growth spurt between his junior and senior seasons, and Michigan's coaches latched on before anyone else could. Clark accepted a grayshirt opportunity at Michigan before a real scholarship opened up, and before too long, Clark was a full-fledged scholarship recipient.
The last time we saw Clark, he was a little bit gangly. For a kid who's 6'3" or 6'4", his ideal weight is probably around 215-220 lbs. Clark is also a kid who looked a little raw in high school, which is somewhat understandable because most of his opponents were completely outmatched by his athleticism; he got by on being bigger and faster than everyone, not necessarily by being more fundamental. Clark could probably use a season to add some bulk, and perhaps more time to refine his technique. But if he shows enough aggression and the desire to hit people, he could find an opportunity to play on kickoff coverage.
(UPDATE: Conveniently, Andrew will be interviewing Clark in a couple days, so leave a question that you might have for Andrew to ask.)
