Hoban QB Clark decommits from OSU football

Archbishop Hoban quarterback Danny Clark announced on Tuesday he has decommitted from Ohio State and reopened his recruitment

Archbishop Hoban High School senior quarterback Danny Clark has decommitted from attending Ohio State University and joining the Buckeyes' gridiron program.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound signal caller announced his decision to reopen his college recruitment on Tuesday morning in a lengthy Twitter post.

The Columbus, Ohio, native was the first verbal commit of the Buckeyes' 2017 recruiting class when he pledged to join the Scarlet and Gray immediately after receiving a scholarship offer in December of his freshman year at Massillon Washington.

Long lauded as a proficient pro-style quarterback, Clark's skill set isn't best suited for the spread offense the Buckeyes have employed during head coach Urban Meyer's tenure.

In his first season at Hoban last fall, Clark, a three-star recruit, led the Knights to the Division III state championship. Midway through the 2016 regular season, Hoban is 4-1 and ranked third in the latest Associated Press state poll.
