Super Frosh QB Commits To Buckeyes

It's not often that a high school freshman is good enough to start at the varsity level at quarterback, especially at a program such as Massillon Washington.

Clark is now a Buckeye

Well, the Tigers' Danny Clark defied all odds, becoming the first freshman in school history to start behind center.

Clark defied odds once again today, when he visited Ohio State for a bowl practice and landed an offer from Urban Meyer, committing shortly after, Bucknuts has confirmed.

The 6-foot-4 and 205-pound Clark completed 104 of 179 passes (58.1 percent) for 1,644 yards with 17 touchdowns with seven interceptions this past season. His best game statistically was in a loss to Austintown Fitch (30-27) as he completed 16 of 23 passes for 358 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

The Class of 2017 prospect is naturally the first in his group to pull the trigger and will now look to be a leader in his class moving forward. We'll have more on this story when we talk to Clark and his father, Jeff, so stay tuned to Bucknuts.
