Ohio State recruiting: Chris Clark, '15 TE, has the Bucks on top

The Buckeyes are the early leaders for 2015 tight end Chris Clark.

Ohio State will look to add one or two tight ends in the 2015 class.

Ohio State is already in very good position for many prospects in the 2015 recruiting class, which as I've said before, will be a huge class for the Buckeyes.

One of them is 2015 Avon (CT) Old Farms tight end Chris Clark, who confirmed to me that the Buckeyes are his early leaders.

"I just feel I would fit well in their program and love the coaches," he said about Ohio State being his leaders.

The 6-foot-6-inch, 245 pound tight end was visited by Ohio State tight ends/fullbacks coach Tim Hinton on Thursday and had very good things to say about meeting Hinton.

"It was awesome! I got to have a great conversation with Coach Hinton."

He hasn't had the chance to take a visit to Ohio State's Columbus campus yet, but that's going to change soon as Clark will be coming to town for an un-official visit on March 21st. He's very excited to take the visit and meet some people involved in the OSU football program.

"(I'm looking forward to) seeing the campus, meeting all of the coaches, and all of the players," he said.

It's very unlikely the Buckeyes will take a tight end in the 2014 class, unless they can find a way to flip Mike Gesicki from Penn State or they offered David Njoku and hit a home run in his visit, so it's really important that the Bucks land at least one, maybe two tight ends in the 2015 recruiting class.

Clark doesn't have a set date for making a decision right now, but he wants to decide sometime before his senior season begins.

The Buckeyes are obviously in good position for Clark right now and we'll know a lot more about him and Ohio State after he takes his visit in March.
