Top DE recruit Deondre Clark still on the fence about college choice

Deondre Clark’s collegiate destination continues to be a mystery.

During national signing day on Wednesday, USA Today college football writer George Schroeder, who was with the LSU coaching staff at its facility, announced on Twitter that the Tigers had gotten a signed letter of intent from Clark, a four-star defensive end from Oklahoma.

About an hour later, Clark’s mother Dorshell, and his coach, Willis Alexander, told The Oklahoman that Clark had not yet signed his official letter of intent.

Oklahoma schools were closed Wednesday, so there was no official signing celebration. And at the time of this posting, LSU did not have Clark listed on its official signing day roster.

Clark has been committed to the Tigers since last July, but started expressing interest in Oklahoma in the past couple weeks.

It seems like every year there’s at least one controversy and this appears to be an interesting one. Clark doesn’t have to sign on national signing day, It’s merely the first day a player can sign and a rite of passage for a recruit.

Perhaps, when Douglass High School in Oklahoma City reopens and has a signing ceremony – if it is planning to do such a thing – we’ll know more about the intentions of one of the only top remaining recruits on the board.
