One of the most intriguing players for Coach Mason and his staff as the 2020 season approaches is going to be lefty gunslinger Danny Clark.
Clark attended Archbishop Hoban HS before committing to Kentucky. Impressively, Clark was ranked as the No. 4 JUCO QB in the 2020 class and comes to Vanderbilt with 3 years of college experience.
Clark started his college career in Lexington where he redshirted in 2017 and only played a few snaps in 2018 for the Wildcats. Then, he decided to transfer to Copiah-Lincoln CC for the 2019 season and saw plenty of action during his time with the Wolves. He played in 9 games while passing for 2,166 yards and recording 18 touchdowns. Clark had a shockingly impressive 51.6 completion % along with 240.7 yards per game.
Those are pretty impressive numbers for a kid who’s flew under the radar to many fans around the country. Clark is mobile out of the pocket and has a strong arm on the run. The Ohio native joins a brand new QB room for new OC Todd Fitch.
Having two true freshman coming to West End, Clark will look to use his veteran presence to teach the younger guys for quicker success. Building relationships with the Vanderbilt wideouts will be key in regards to the timing and rhythm during the 2020 season.
Finding a permanent and consistent QB will lead to the Commodore offense to a much more successful season on that side of the ball. They will desperately need Clark’s experience and leadership as a reliable signal caller for Coach Mason. Danny Clark will look to step up and take the starting QB role before Vanderbilt’s season opener on September 5th vs. Mercer. Electric.
