Two days after making his 2012 debut against Air Force, Michigan defensive end Frank Clark pled guilty to a second-degree felony home invasion charge on Tuesday at a Washtenaw County Circuit Court.
The 6'2, 262-pound sophomore admitted to Judge Donald Shelton that he knowingly walked into another student's room at a campus residence hall and stole the student's laptop back on Jun. 14. Due to the fact that he had no prior arrests however, Clark was sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Training Act (HYTA) and can actually have the charge expunged from his record if he stays out of trouble for one calendar year.
Clark made an immediate impact with four tackles (two for loss) and one pass deflection in his debut against the Falcons on Saturday, even though it's difficult to know if this situation served as a wake-up call or not. Another transgression under Brady Hoke's watch would likely spell the end of Clark's career at Michigan, so the talented defender will definitely need to keep his act together if he wants to stay in Ann Arbor.
