Iowa offered a scholarship to Clark Sunday. TCU, Memphis, Washington State, Rice, Vanderbilt, Colorado State, Minnesota, Wyoming and Syracuse were among the other programs to extend opportunities to him.
Iowa quarterback coach Ken O’Keefe stopped at Rockwall last week to watch Clark throw. He was scheduled to be back at the school this week.
The Hawkeyes offered four players at the position last week. In addition to Clark, fellow Texan, Maverick McIvor, Ohio’s Connor Bazelak and Zach Calzada from Georgia received opportunities.
O’Keefe called Clark (6-5, 210) Sunday night to offer the scholarship.
“We talked about how they really liked me as a quarterback and how I threw the ball. He said I would fit in great,” Clark said.
