Once the word got out that Manchester starting defensive back Kei’Trel Clark (2019 DB/WR 5-10 160) re-opened his recruitment last week, there have been a multitude of programs looking to put him right back at the top of their big board.
The Manchester product de-committed from UNC-Charlotte in the early hours on December 10th citing that “unfortunately, things happen” after talking it over with his family and friends. Clark picked up another offer from the University of Richmond in which he took a visit to getting the chance to meet up with Coach Russ Huesman.
If that wasn’t enough, Clark has been able to secure three offers over the course of the last four days coming from Kent State University, VMI and Stony Brook.
“We have an okay relationship,” Clark told recruit804 about Stony Brook. “They were recruiting me during the summer time. From what they told me, they didn’t have any open slots to offer me a scholarship at the time so I stayed at the top of their recruiting board for a while. When the slot opened back up I was the first person they contacted to give me the good news.”
Despite losing communication with the Seawolves following his commitment to the 49ers, Stony Brook revamped talks upon finding out about Clark de-committing from Charlotte.
“We lost contact during the time when I had committed to UNC-Charlotte, but right when I re-opened my recruitment they reached out to me,” Clark stated.
Despite K.J. McNeil (2019 RB/LB 5-11 214) being the primary target on the season for Brendon Clark (2019 QB 6-2 218), Kei’Trel was able to make a sizeable impact. However, Clark is being targeted by many college programs to play defensive back due to his speed, coverage skills and five interceptions he had on the season alongside Kwame Dehaney (2019 DB 5-11 180). Clark has maintained that his recruitment will remain open until he gets comfortable enough to find another suitor.
