Clark, who moved from Los Angeles to Cleveland as an eighth grader to live with his father, eventually emerged as a standout tight end and linebacker under the tutelage of legendary coach Ted Ginn Sr. at Glenville High School. He committed to Michigan and played four seasons with the Wolverines before being drafted by the Seahawks in the second round of the 2015 draft.
