2011 Michigan Football Recruiting: Frank Clark
Position: Tight End
High School: Glenville Academic Campus
Head Coach: Ted Ginn
Class: 2011 Football Recruiting Class
Profile: Michigan Football Recruiting Target – Frank Clark
Frank Clark- Frank is a hybrid TE and SE (could likely also be an H-back, which is not really used in the Michigan spread) from famed Cleveland Glenville. There may not be a program in the Midwest that has more athletic talent than Glenville.
Frank caught UM’s eye at the Michigan showcase. He is a very good athlete and moves well for his size, which is listed in the 205-210 range. Frank clearly has the frame to add the weight needed to be a college TE or H-back. His straight-line speed is reported to be in the 4.5+ range.
Frank runs solid routes and uses his body well to separate from defenders. Glenville is loaded with skilled players, so Clark does not show up a ton on film. His video from the Michigan showcase was impressive.
Just as our last article with Damon Knox with these two player profiles, both of whom are a little under the radar, are here presented. Both players come from highly successful programs.
There is very good upside potential for both of the players mentioned and both could be considered as developmental level players in a big time division one program, probably red-shirting and contributing by the third year.
But things can change greatly from junior to post senior status. It would not be a great shock to see the stock of both Frank Clark and Damon Knox rise significantly, primarily because of their athletic skills.
