Danny Clark commits to Kentucky Wildcats

New, 9 comments

As expected, Danny Clark has committed to the Kentucky Wildcats. He announced the decision via Twitter on Saturday morning.

247 Sports ranks Clark as a 3-star recruit, the No. 18 quarterback in the class of 2017 and the No. 18 overall recruit from the state of Ohio. ESPN rates him as a four-star prospect and the No. 13 QB in 2017.

Clark coming off a visit to UK last weekend. All indications have been that it went very well, enough so that UK essentially sealed the deal in this recruitment.

It became a done deal once Clark not only tabbed today as his commitment date, but also set another unofficial visit to UK for tonight’s game vs Mississippi State.

The 6-4, 223-pound passer was once committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes, but recently decommitted and reopened his recruitment. The Indiana Hoosiers have also been recruiting him, but UK has been viewed as the favorite as soon as he decommitted from the Buckeyes.

The Archbishop Hoban star out of Akron (OH) decommitted from the Buckeyes Sept. 27 in a heartfelt letter. He had been committed to OSU since December 2013, his freshman year. UK recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow stayed in contact with Clark while he was pledged to the Buckeyes, which led to a quick pledge to UK once he decommitted from OSU.

This is a big-time get for Mark Stoops and his staff, not to mention give them another solid pickup from the Buckeye state.

Clark is the second quarterback commitment for the Wildcats in the class of 2017 and the No. 14 commitment overall.
