Spring Game

UVa Making Impression On Clarke

T.C. Williams (Alexandria, VA) defensive lineman Jeremiah Clarke made his way to Charlottesville on Saturday. It was the 6’5″, 270-pound junior’s first trip back to UVa since February 24, when he was offered by head coach Mike London while on another unofficial visit.

“The Spring Game was great,” Clarke said.

Clarke was spotted wearing a Virginia t-shirt on Saturday, something that caught the attention of Cavaliers head coach Mike London.

“He said I had the right t-shirt on,” Clarke said with a laugh.

Of London, Clarke said: “He’s one of the best coaches. He’s cool. He’s chill. He’s a fun-loving guy.”

Clarke also said he does “a lot of communicating” with primary recruiter Anthony Poindexter, who he called a “great guy.”

Virginia has made a strong impression on the talented lineman, who also boasts offers from Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State, Penn State, and Temple.

“It feels like home,” Clarke said of UVa. “It’s also close, so my parents can come see me play.”

“It was just a great visit,” Clarke said, referring to a recent trip to Penn State. “I was impressed a lot with the coaching staff, the practice, and how everything is run there.”

Asked if Penn State and Virginia are high on his list, Clarke said: “All the schools that have offered me are pretty much the same, but I guess you could say UVa and Penn State are high up there.”

Up next for Clarke is a trip to Blacksburg for Virginia Tech’s Spring Game on April 20. Tech has yet to offer, but the T.C. Williams product believes one could come on that day. Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Tennessee are among the other schools expressing interest.

EDGE Outlook on Clarke: Clarke had a great trip to UVa on Saturday, and right now I think the Hoos might have a slight edge over the Nittany Lions. He really
