Danny Clark On Ohio State Recruiting Other QBs: "I Don't Care If They Bring In Joe Namath, Aaron Rodgers"

Danny Clark's commitment to Ohio State seems pretty unbreakable, no matter who else the Buckeyes bring in as competition at the quarterback position. Clark, a 2017 three-star recruit who committed all the way back in 2013, attended the program's "Friday Night Lights" event last night, and was naturally asked about Tate Martell, a blue-chip quarterback that recently joined the Buckeye class. Back when Martell committed, Clark said that he's not afraid of competition, and he doubled down on that on Friday.

From 247Sports:

“I don’t want to come off rude but that question has been asked of me hundreds and hundreds of times and like I said before ‘I don’t care,’ ” said Clark, who is preparing for his senior year at Akron Hoban. “I don’t care who they bring in. I don’t care if they bring in Joe Namath, I don’t care if they bring in Aaron Rodgers, I’m going to come in and compete and win the job.”

OSU has been stuffed to the gills with quarterback talent under Urban Meyer, and it looks like that will continue even beyond J.T. Barrett's time on campus. The Buckeyes have numerous high-profile QBs waiting in the wings. We should continue to see some serious competition at that position over the next few years.
