Ohio State announced earlier this month redshirt junior wide receiver James Clark would graduate with a finance degree this semester and not return to the football team this fall.

Clark elected to take his talents to Blacksburg, where as a graduate transfer, he'll be able to play immediately for Justin Fuente's Virginia Tech Hokies.


"You can see the production they have out of the receivers," Clark said. "And as a team, they went to the ACC championship last year, and they know how to get their playmakers the ball.

"Watching film and seeing all the different ways they get the ball to the receivers, it's hard to say to (that)."

Clark, a 2013 four-star prospect out of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, finished with six receptions for 47 yards for Ohio State in 2016.

Virginia Tech begins its 2017 campaign against West Virginia at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, on Sept. 2.
