Clark originally committed to Ohio State as a freshman, and made it clear throughout this process that Ohio State was his dream school, so on some level, this is a somewhat surprising development. But Ohio State has already added another quarterback in this recruiting class, in four-star dual-threat QB Tate Martell. Over the last year, it became increasingly clear that Clark’s skillset is less fitted to Ohio State’s offense. Ohio
