Tyler Clark still considers himself a UGA commitment, but that pledge won’t keep the 4-star defensive tackle from taking a handful of official visits.
The 6-foot-3, 290-pound prospect from Americus Sumter County South (Americus, Ga.) took an official visit to Tennessee last weekend. He told SEC Country on Monday that he is also considering taking some other official visits but isn’t sure where or when he’ll do so.
He said Mississippi State, LSU, Ohio State, Auburn and Alabama are all potential destinations. However, Clark maintained he is still committed to being a Bulldog.
“I’m 100 percent,”Clark said when asked if he’s still committed.
Clark said he committed to UGA because it felt like home. Still, he admitted that UGA’s decision to fire former coach Mark Richt and hire former Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart did have an impact on him.
“It hit me a little bit,” Clark said. “I wasn’t expecting it…It didn’t affect it as bad as some thought it would.“
The Vols made an impression this weekend as they took the official visitors on a ride down Tennessee River.
“The boat ride,” Clark said when asked what stood out about the trip to Knoxville, Tenn. “I liked that.”
Clark is rated the No. 24 defensive tackle in the nation and the No. 19 prospect in Georgia.
