It’s not often a high school freshman gains national attention four years before he makes it to college.
Yet 2022 Woodrow Wilson (NJ) receiver and defensive back Amari Clark has done just that.
After already holding offers from Baylor and Rutgers, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound standout recently received his third Power Five offer from West Virginia.
“I was pretty excited about the offer. It’s coming from a big-time school like West Virginia,” Clark told DubVNation. “I think I would look good in blue and gold. The program is really nice. I love the coaches and love the uniforms. There are a lot of good teams in the Big 12. I think I will perform well against other Big 12 teams.”
Although Clark has plenty of time to select where he’d like to attend college, he hopes to visit West Virginia in the future with his head coach and stated that academics and football will be key factors when deciding on a school.
West Virginia’s tradition of singing “Country Roads” after a home game also struck a cord with the 2022 prospect.
“Take me home! I heard it for the first time this year. I thought it was awesome, especially watching everyone on TV sing it.” Clark added it also gave him “chills” when he heard the Mountaineers unofficial fight song.
As for now, Clark is focused on breaking the 1,000-yard mark as a receiver next season and bringing home another state championship.
