Jeff Greer of the Courier Journal wrote that wide receiver Robert Clark has left the University of Louisville football team and transferred to Samford, which is in Birmingham, Alabama. I am not shocked that he left, because apparently he wanted to be more of “the guy” in the offense. As we know, the Cards are loaded at wide receiver. And if anyone is going to be “the guy”, it will be DeVante Parker. What surprises me is that he left LAST MONTH. In today’s society of social media, I am very surprised that this wasn’t already well-known. But now it is, and here is some of Greer’s article…
Clark, who graduated from U of L this spring, caught 25 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown in 2013 but didn’t see a viable route to significant playing time in 2014.
“He wanted to be a guy that was a more integral part of an offense,” said Jack Daniels, the football coach at Dwyer High in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
“It was hard for him. Louisville has a lot of (receivers).”
Clark would have competed for playing time with seniors Kai De La Cruz, Eli Rogers and Michaelee Harris, who each have similar skill sets to Clark.
