Jordan Clark out of Richmond Hill was quietly one of the best cornerbacks not just in the southeast sector of the state, but in our opinion, the state at large. The 2021 corner had some huge games last year for Richmond Hill, going up against some of the top competition in all of class 6-A as they made a deep push into the playoffs.
Perhaps the most memorable game was Richmond Hill’s win over Valdosta in the state quarterfinals. They won 16-14 against the high-powered offensive attack of Valdosta, which propelled Richmond Hill to the state semifinals for the first time in school history. Clark had several key plays in their historic win, one being a pass breakup on 4th down against Valdosta’s All-State wide receiver. Clark also made a few big tackles, one that stopped a potential long gain down the middle of the field. So to put succinctly, the clutch-factor for Clark is real.
That was just a small part of last year’s success, and over the offseason Clark has focused on improving his game. “I have improved on my man and press coverage and my eyes in the backfield.” He continued to talk about the upcoming season, “My goal is to become a better leader and get more offers.”
The 5’10” 165 lbs. Clark already showcased good man coverage instincts, so sharpening up that skill even more will really solidify the senior cornerback as one of the better in his class. Dating back to even his sophomore year, we have always been impressed with 2021 cornerback. He has a wiry frame that is continuing to fill out (just over the last year Clark has added 50 lbs. to each lift), but what has been the most consistent theme in Clark’s game is his competitive nature.
Clark believes that his athletic ability is what separates himself from his positional peers, and says that his eyes are his biggest weakness at the moment. When asked about what schools he is currently hearing from, Clark has a solid list.
“Samford, Campbell, Georgia Southern, Savannah State, and Boston College are a couple of schools that have been in contact.” He continued, “Schools like Georgia Southern, Georgia Tech, Georgia State and Lenoir-Rhyne talk to me about coming up there for a private training session after the dead period.”
Right now, Clark’s recruitment has been steady, and believes that more offers will come in after he gets his test scores recorded. Campbell and Lenoir-Rhyne are two of Clark’s most recent offers, and with no college camps in place, it looks like the 2021 corner will have to start off his senior year out with a bang in order to peak more D1 school’s interest. It should be an exciting first few weeks of the season here, so stay tuned to @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter to see how Clark’s recruitment develops.
