It this an offer that Urban and the coaches should be worried about? My ND friend sent me an email with an excerpt from an article where he sounds pretty excited about ND (I'm not sure from where the article is published). 

 

That particular school joined the mix on Tuesday as Notre Dame extended an offer to the 2015 tight end.“I’m so happy man, this means the world to me,” the 6-foot-6, 247-pounder from Avon Old Farms in Avon, Conn., said.

It’s a big offer for Clark, who said he knows “a ton” about Notre Dame.
“I know the success they’ve had and a ton of tradition,” said Clark. “They’re always sending guys to the NFL.
“Three of my uncles and my grandpa all went to Notre Dame. It’s really the school of my family and on my mom’s side too. My mom is really excited about Notre Dame. She’s constantly asking, ‘What’s happening with Notre Dame?’ It’s definitely a school everybody is really excited about in my family.”

I know the success they’ve had

It's not the 80s anymore.

“They’re always sending guys to the NFL.

And fake girlfriends.

Sure ND has the rep of sending TEs to the NFL but OSU is in a unique position to offer him early playing time considering no TE last year and the way Baugh has been messing up. 

Mac..yeah

So basically his family has a giant hardon for ND.

I never blame a kid for going to a school that he is a legacy at.  Just one of those things you deal with in recruiting.  If his entire family roots for ND, it's similar to a kid in Ohio wanting to be a Buckeye his whole life...

Steve Wiltfong tweeted that the offer brought Clark's mother to tears. I can't embed but here is the link.

Hopefully he will still come to the good guys.

If ND is the best place for him and his family, best of luck to Clark.  The one thing I am confident in is that tOSU coaching staff will bring in a great talent at tight end and in one year we'll be celebrating another terrific recruiting class.  Go Bucks!.

i mean in all honesty, Notre Dame is the better program too, they have a rich tradition that Ohio state cant compete with and not many college football teams can say that they have had charlie weis and tyrone willingham coach their teams, and lets be honest here, they are two of the best coaches to ever coach college football. so with that being said this guy is making the correct call... but my heart is always with ohio state.  O.H.

Please learn how to use the sarcasm font, stat! Otherwise, I have a laundry list of insults to hurl your way...

It must be, right?

I think Birm's called this guy's recruitment something like "New day, new offer, new favorite." ND may in fact be his dream offer, but he's seemed equally excited about a dozen other new offers in the last month or two.

I think there is a Michigan troll in this thread.

At this point, I think the only way Ohio State lands him is if Kelly jumps to the NFL.

My ND friend at work tonight told me there were some rumblings on some ND boards that  Heurman was considering a transfer to OSU.
