Dayes on Clark: "Jack is one of the top attacking players in Ohio and was someone we targeted early in the process. He is a very quick and technical player with the ability to beat players 1v1 and either serve quality crosses or create scoring opportunities for himself. He has had tremendous success at the club and high school levels and brings a winning mentality to our program."
