Rahshawn Clark is a four-star athlete, according to 247Sports. But, he is a consensus three-star prospect among all of the recruiting sites. As of Sunday afternoon, the 6-foot, 180-pound athlete released his Top 6 schools: Louisville, California, Michigan State, Oregon, Oregon State, and Washington.
Brandon Huffman, a National Recruiting Editor for 247Sports had some high praise for the Federal Way High School product as he heads into his senior season:
"“Clark is one of the top two-way prospects in the state regardless of class. He has Power 5 offers for both cornerback and for receiver. He’s rated as an athlete and while we think he’s got more upside on defense, his heart is on offense. Whichever side of the ball he ends up playing, he will impact the game. He’s also a good returner, a player who can use his speed and vision to break off long returns. As a receiver, he’s a natural pass catcher and probably projects best inside as a slot but could split out wide too depending on the offense. Defensively, he has some of the best ball skills of any defender in the class and plays with a nice, physical edge to him, not afraid to initiate contact at all.”"
Based on this scouting report, it appears Clark would play as a wide receiver in a Division I program, but still has the capability to play both sides of the ball. Louisville was late to the game in his recruitment by not offering him a scholarship until April 1st of this year. But, Jeff Brohm and the Cardinals made a massive impression on him as the Cardinals are in his Top 6 less than one month later.
In a recent interview with 247Sports’ Brandon Huffman, he had this to say about Louisville:
"“They really opened my eyes on the unofficial visit I took. It was crazy how much they made me feel like a big priority.”"
Shortly after, he set up a visit to the University of Louisville on April 14th. An unofficial visit at that, meaning it was on his own dime. So, Head Coach Jeff Brohm clearly had an impact on him and has made up some serious ground in recruiting the dynamic player.
It will be exciting to see how Louisville continues to pursue Rahshawn Clark, especially with the way Jeff Brohm prioritizes highly-talented receivers in his offensive scheme.
