Per his Twitter... Chris Clark has committed to UNC. 

Will Conrad get a Buckeye offer now?

Wow wtf now we are getting beat out by fucking UNC for our top football targets? Hopefully he will still take visits.

I can't believe he committed without visiting us first... and he was visiting this coming weekend.

Honestly I think Braxton struggling to go through reads hurts us at the TE position. Vannett and Heuerman weren't targeted a ton last year. I believe JT Barrett will be different when he takes over as QB.

He would never even play with Braxton, so if that was "his thinking" that's retarded.  Kenny utilized them just fine, so it's clearly not the game plan.

I'm talking from a production standpoint. UNC's TE is the #1 overall TE on the board and had a monster year. Our TE's weren't used a whole lot in the passing game this year.

Its really quite off-putting when:

A) You use the word "retarded

and 

B) You criticize a recruit's LIFE DECISION because it doesn't match up with your favorite football team.

These stretches in recruiting really stink. I'm ready for the train to get rolling again. I'm confident we'll get momentum back though

whelp, did not see that coming.

Maybe he thinks he'll become as good as Ebron who just graduated from there and is the #1 TE in the draft? But seriously that's nonsense that he chose before all of his visits, but again his choice and good luck to him

Isnt UNC being investigated for another scandal that could absolutely hammer them? I dont follow the gossip on smaller schools like unc but thought I seen some headlines on them in the last couple of months.

Yep, certainly didn't see this coming. That sucks. Hopefully we can land Hale Hentges out of Missouri. Kid is a high priority at TE as well.

A month or so ago I remember he received his ND offer and a lot of people were scared he would commit there with him and his family saying the offer was a dream come true,heard he even cried when he was offered.

Hang in there folks...a lot can happen in 11  months. I never get too excited about a kid commiting to a school this early unless they are a legacy or a local kid b/c sometimes it makes sense for a local "high school hero" to pick an in-state school (Christian Hackenberg is an example). I am sure Urbs will be in touch through the summer anyway.

Or maybe it's what we all know about UNC lately that was the big draw.

This doesn't mean a whole lot IMO. If he's still committed after this season, then I'll take that as that's where he's going.

It doesnt mean alot if he still visits other schools. However for example if he cancels his visit to Columbus then it means a ton. Rule of thumb is never pay attention to what a recruit says and only pay attention to what they do. If he still makes his visit there is hope.

Cancelling a visit this early isn't that big of a deal.

I hear you Colerain & I didn't mean to say that I think he ends up a Buckeye, because I have no clue about that...I just have my doubts as to whether he stays a Tar Heel.

You know what Urban says about verbal commitments. "All that means is you're in the kid's final three."

I'm not sure. I'm not even sure what helmets those are. Are those from an arena football team? I don't see anything in that room that speaks deep football tradition. Is that a study hall?

Like another poster said, it is what they do and not what they say. We have had prospects before that said it was a dream..blah blah blah, to only commit to another school before even visiting. It happens to teams all around the country every cycle. That is why you always recruit several players and not put all of your eggs in one basket.

Jeremypreemo81's picture

I hope I don't get slammed with DV's b/c of this but until we start using are TE's more effectively I don't see us getting a top 5 TE consistently druing the recruiting process.  We have some great TE's on the roster now and I hope we start using them b/c they are huge down field weapons. Until we start using them as such I just feel it's going to be hard for us to get that top kid.  I am sure they want to do more than just block.

Hopefully his parents will convince him to put more thought into it. Any word on if he still plans to take the OV to OSU?

Calm yourself down we're only a month and two weeks past NSD 14. If we go for higher end targets that means that we won't have as strong of a start as usual. Plus recruits have the next season to determine where they're going to go. I'm pretty sure if we have a playoff berth and win the NCG it'll help recruiting a whole lot.

Keep recruiting the OL and DL hardcore and get a top end can't miss QB every two years and the rest will fall into place. Sad OSU didn't get their guy, but a lot can happen between now and 2/15.

Jeremy Birmingham's picture

As I said last week, wasn't feeling Clark and OSU much - seemed like he was into the school initially but I got the feeling he wanted a bit more intimate environment for college. Last week he told me that his leaders were Arizona State and...Purdue, but that he was hoping he and his parents would go someplace and be blown away, apparently that happened in Chapel Hill.
