Tennessee hasn’t had any obvious leads on a quarterback in the 2019 class to this point, but that may be about to change. Midlothian, Virginia’s Brendon Clark decommitted from Wake Forest last night, reopening his recruitment and allowing the Vols another shot.

Clark had been committed to Wake Forest since July of 2017, but his stock picked up steam over the spring, picking up offers from Clemson and Tennessee. The 6-2, 213 pound quarterback is currently rated as a three-star recruit.
He participated in the Elite 11 last week and managed to turn some heads with his live arm.
“Clark is another kid we’ve liked both days,” 247Sports’ Greg Biggins wrote last week after the second day of the Elite 11 Finals. “He has a real nice frame, one of the biggest arms in the camp and was accurate to all three levels of the field today.” (Via 247 Sports)
Clark is the 17th ranked pro-style quarterback in the country, according to 247 Sports. In a bit of a down year for quarterbacks, Clark very well could emerge as an answer at the position for Tennessee in the 2019 class. He currently hold just five reported offers from Wake Forest, Clemson, Tennessee, Duke and Maryland. That may change soon with him officially back on the market. Clark has visited Clemson in recent days.
Elsewhere on the quarterback horizon, Tennessee hosted Zach Calzada this past weekend. The Georgia native has seen his options really expand over the last few months. Now, the Georgia Bulldogs are the odds on favorite to land Calzada after a late offer.
