Arizona State University has landed the biggest commitment of the 2019 class from Louisiana’s Jordan Clark. The University Lab cornerback made his announcement official Tuesday on Twitter. The four-star prospect has been high on the Sun Devils for some time now. He took several unofficial visits to the school, including one on September 8th when Arizona State took down Michigan State in a defensive thriller.
One of the top prospects to come out of the boot, he selected Arizona State over Cal, Louisville and Vanderbilt. He noted the facilities were top-notch and he had always hoped to have had an opportunity to play for Arizona State. He not only was a fan of the new facilities, the coaching staff and the campus, he was happy with what opportunities he would have outside of football.

The son of former NFL Player Ryan Clark, he and his family have been long-time friends with Head Coach Herm Edwards. It only helps that Antonio Pierce, another former NFL player, also has a solid relationship with the Clarks. According to Clark, when Edwards took over the football program, Arizona State really became a true contender for him.
Clark is considered to be one of the top defensive backs in the 2019 class. He’s versatile, has an incredible sense of awareness and has the potential to be a true leader for the program. His commitment marks the 15th for ASU in the 2019 recruiting cycle and he is the highest-rated pledge so far. Clark was just offered the opportunity to play in this year’s Under Armour All American game.
