Consensus 4 star National Recruit
Clark has the frame, wing span, feet and athleticism of a 5 star blue chip national recruit and future professional football player. This is why he was offered scholarships to play at Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State just to name a few. His quickness, agility, flexibility and overall speed make him a candidate to play several positions at the collegiate level. Clark displays unusual explosiveness and change of direction ability for a football player with his size. His years of competing on the wrestling mat and volleyball court have aided in the development of this overall incredible athleticism. On the offensive side of the ball he has an explosive first step will the ability to keep his pad level low. He can drive block a high school defender from the line of scrimmage well into the defensive backfield.
Micah’s ability to bend and dip like a graceful contortionist on defense allows him to defeat blockers and penetrate into the backfield. This is where he displays NFL potential. He has unusual acceleration and sudden bursts for such a large frame. The athleticism is off the charts. When his fully matured upper body and round the clock collegiate football coaching catch up to his lower half, he will be a very productive BIG10 football player. Question is at what position. He could be an offensive guard initially then be slid out to play offensive tackle if there is an immediate need. I see him as a guard more than a tackle because of his lighting quick feet. Rutgers has landed a true Blue Chip National Recruit.
