Clark rebuf fs Hor ns

Clark Clark When Mac Brown and the University of Texas couldn’t decide whet her t hey wanted to tend er LeRaven Clark a scholarship offer, Clark saved them some time and said thanks, but no thanks.

Clark, the 6-foot-6, 247- pound Rockdale lineman was extended an inv itation to the L onghorns latest junior day on Saturday by defensive coordinator/head coach in waiting Will Muschamp, but offensive line coach Mac McWhorter phoned Rockdale Coach Jeff Miller on Thursday and informed Miller that he didn’t know if the Longhorns were going to be able to make him a solid offer, but he was welcome to attend anyway.

Clark decided against making the trip to the capital and will move on.

Clark had gotten a look at all he wanted to see on last Tuesday when he and Miller took an unofficial visit to watch the Longhorns practice.

They visited with both Muscha mp a nd McWhor ter a nd toured the facilities.

The Longhorns are loading up on linemen and have signed five of the state’s top players, including Sedrick Flowers (6-3, 290) of Galena Park North Shore.

Clark is in no hurry to make a decision as far as where he will attend school and has already had solid offers from TCU and Baylor.

“He’s just taking them as they come in,” Miller said. “Everyday, somebody new calls.”

Clark—who is just 16 years old but already has a 7-foot-1 wing span–will make another unofficial visit this week to Texas A&M.

Oklahoma St. and Houston have been on Clark’s trail and now Missouri has joined the fray.

“Missouri has come in hot and heavy as of late,” Miller said.

Of course Missouri has had great luck with Tiger football players.

Former Tiger Stryker Sulak graduated from Missouri last year after a stellar career which saw him named first-team All-Big 12 and an NFL draft choice.

Miller says that schools are torn whether to use Clark on the offensive or defensive side.

“They realize the great upsidehe has,” said Miller.
