It's not every year that Bath County High School is producing a D-1 football prospect but Clark Kissick seems to have changed that.
The 6'1 245 lbs. QB is already getting interest from "Mississippi State,Kentucky,Texas Tech,Western Kentucky,TCU,Michigan,Oregon,Eastern Kentucky,Bowling Green,Harvard,Georgetown (D.C.),Brown,Princeton, and Miami (FL)."
Kissick says "They all stand out in different ways, I love Mississippi State because I have a lot of family there. Of course with Kentucky always be toward the top because I'm a Kentucky boy. I also really like what's happening at Western Kentucky. TCU and Texas Tech have just came up recently as well as Oregon and Michigan. I really like Bowling Green and my dad played at Eastern Kentucky in the 80's."
As for which programs are pursuing Clark the heaviest he says "Kentucky,Western Kentucky,Bowling Green,Mississippi State, and TCU are recruiting me the hardest."
While those schools are pursuing him pretty hard Kissick says "Kentucky and Western Kentucky's coaching staffs have stood out to me the most."
The Owingsville (KY) star will take some visits soon and he says he'll visit "Western Kentucky again, and Mississippi State. I also plan to visit Georgetown and maybe Princeton,Brown, and Harvard." Kissick also plans on camping at either TCU or Texas Tech and says possibly even Miami (FL) or Michigan.
One visit and program that seems to have cemented itself in Clark's favorites is Kentucky which he visited for the spring game of which he says "I sat with Coach Smith, for most of the dinner along with Coach Sanders and I also talked to Coach Phillips. They said they want to see me in the camp one more time."
One program stopped by Bath Co. HS, as Western Kentucky stopped in to check up on Clark and say "They were very interested in me, and want me to camp there, before a offer is extended."
As for other prospects Clark wouldn't mind playing with is two Louisville Trinity stars in James Quick and Dalyn Dawkins, as well as Bourbon County (KY) RB Kentayvous Hopkins. Of Hopkins Kissick says "He was unreal, we battled with him the entire game but fell short, he was all the hype we had heard."
