Texas Tech Offers Chapel Hill’s Joseph Clark
The first BCS conference offer arrived Monday afternoon for Joseph Clark.
The Chapel Hill 2014 defensive back was offered by Texas Tech, he announced on his Twitter account.
The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Clark has impressed in recent weeks during camps, including the Texas Tech camp in Longview on June 12. Later that day Clark received an in-person offer from Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione at the Bobcats' camp in Kilgore.
Texas Tech is the third Division I FBS program to offer Clark, whose offer list includes the Red Raiders, Air Force, Texas State, McNeese State (Division I FCS), and Incarnate Word (D-I FCS).
Clark played linebacker, safety, and running back for the Bulldogs in 2012, when Chapel Hill finished 3-7. Clark had 104 tackles, four for loss, one sack, three interceptions, and three forced fumbles. He led the Bulldogs in rushing, carrying 94 times for 712 yards and six touchdowns.
Clark started at safety as a sophomore when Chapel Hill won the Class 3A Division I state championship. He was also the Bulldogs’ fourth-leading rusher that season, finishing with 51 carries for 406 yards and five touchdowns.
