ATHENS — After a long wait, Georgia does indeed have Tyler Clark in the fold.
Clark, a defensive tackle from Americus-Sumter County High School, has sent in his letter-of-intent, Georgia confirmed. He becomes the 20th signee in Georgia’s class, and possibly the final one, depending on what five-star athlete Demetris Robertson does.
Rated a four-star prospect, Clark is the No. 25 defensive tackle nationally, and the No. 22 overall prospect in the state of Georgia. He is listed at 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds.
Clark has been committed to Georgia since last May, and will play for Tracy Rocker, one of only two holdovers from Mark Richt’s staff.
He now joins a defensive line that loses four seniors off last year’s team, but has a good stable of young players, most notably rising sophomore Trent Thompson and early enrollee Julian Rochester.
