Sometimes a depth chart at prospective colleges can impact how a recruit views the school. That won’t be the case with Jacob Clark.

“It will effect my decision very little. I love to compete,” the Rockwall (TX) High quarterback told HN.

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.

“I’m very excited about the Iowa offer. I love the winning tradition that’s there,” he said.

Clark hopes to work with O’Keefe on setting up an Iowa visit sometime in the near future.

“My timeline to (commit) is sometime in June,” he said.

Clark is leaning towards majoring in Business when he gets to college.

Last fall, Clark threw for 2,937 yards and 29 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He added 125 yards and seven scores on the ground.
