Granby (Norfolk, VA) linebacker/strong safety Telvion Clark , a first-team all-Eastern district selection in 2007, is receiving interest from a number of ACC and Big East programs. Granby head coach Dave Hudak does not believe that any school has extended an official scholarship offers as of yet, but he expects things to be different by the end of the summer.
“To my knowledge, nobody has actually offered Telvion (pronounce Tell-vun) just yet,” Hudak said. “Some coaches have said they are close, but they want to see him run. Several coaches want him to come up to one-day camps in the summer. I’m pretty confident that he’ll have a nice share of offers by August. He has an idea of some schools he’d like to play for and I think those schools will wind up offering.”
Virginia Tech is one of the schools expressing heavy interest in the 6-1, 200-pound junior. Clark, who recently attended Tech’s Spring Game, is interested in the Hokies as well.

Clark turned in a monster junior season, racking up 150-plus tackles and eight sacks on the year primarily from the middle linebacker spot, although he did move around to outside linebacker at times. He displays versatility and athleticism, but other abilities are impressive as well.
“He is a really good leader,” Hudak said. “He leads by example. He leads and our guys listen to him. I’m going to try to get him on the field more on offense next season. He is definitely the hub our team is built around. He is a hard worker. Sometimes, the hardest thing to get him to do is to rest.”
Despite the likelihood of seeing an increased role on the offensive side of the ball in 2008, Clark’s future lies on defense.
“He scored a few times on offense last year, but he really does run the show on defense,” Hudak said. “He is pretty heady out there. He has the green light to change things out there and he is used to doing that. He likes defense.
“[In terms of projected college position] He is right there to where he could be an outside linebacker...
