Defensive tackle Kenneth Clark headed to UCLA

By Bryan Fischer | Blogger

It was a good start to a holiday week for UCLA coaches upon hearing that Rialto (Calif.) defensive tackle Kenneth Clark had made up his mind and decided to become a Bruin on Monday.

“I have real good relationships with the UCLA coaches, they have been recruiting me for a long time,” Clark told Scout. “I really like Coach (Demetrice) Martin and Coach (Jim) Mora, and I talk with Angus (McClure) a lot too. I called Coach Martin to tell him first and then he got Coach Mora on three-way."

The 6-foot-2, 285-pounder strongly considered Washington among numerous other scholarship offers but will be staying in-state for college.

“It's not a knock on Seattle at all, but I just felt more comfortable living in Los Angeles for the next four years of my life and then after football as well," he said. "I want to live in Southern California after I'm done playing football, and the alumni support is obviously much stronger for UCLA than Washington.”

Clark becomes the ninth commitment for the Bruins' class of 2013.
