Granby (Norfolk, VA) linebacker Telvion Clark will not make a verbal commitment today and instead will do so tomorrow. Earlier today, he indicated to TechSideline.com that he had made his college decision but “wanted to make sure” before making his decision solid. But, as of now, all indications are that Virginia Tech will be the choice for the 6-1, 205-pound linebacker.
According to a report by Kyle Tucker of the Virginian Pilot, Clark will indeed commit to the Hokies tomorrow over Penn State.
Clark, who received scholarship offers from Colorado, East Carolina, Marshall, North Carolina, Penn State and Virginia, turned in an excellent performance at Tech’s camp on June 7th. He ran the 40 in 4.47 seconds and performed well in front of defensive coordinator Bud Foster en route to earning an official scholarship offer from the Hokies later that day.
“[Coach Foster] was hyping me up throughout the camp, so I knew I had to be doing something right,” Clark said shortly after his camp performance. “He said he really liked my aggression. I thought we worked well together.”
As a junior last season, Clark registered over 150 tackles including eight sacks. Assuming he follows through, he will become Tech’s sixth commitment of the 2009 recruiting class. Five of the six commits would have been offered at Tech’s camp.
