Arizona hosted a big recruiting weekend and came away with a commitment. Dallas, TX/South Oak Cliff linebacker Derrion Clark made a verbal pledge to the Wildcats on Saturday.
Despite being a two-time, 1st Team All- Texas selection. Arizona was his lone Power 5 offer. He also held offers from Texas-San Antonio and UTEP, as well as a number of FCS offers.
Clark has 270 tackles in three years at South Oak Cliff, including 111 last season. He is a 3-star prospect by the 247Composite rankings and 247Sports rates him as the No. 63 ILB, though some believe the 6-0, 220 pounder may be able to add the size to develop into a an outside linebacker/edge rusher.
He becomes Arizona’s fifth verbal commitment in the 2019 class and the third from Texas. He is the lone defensive commit so far in the class.
