Michigan Football Recruiting: Jeremy Clark Commits

Kentucky safety Jeremy Clark decided on Friday to accept an offer from Michigan. Clark is a 2012 recruit, but he might end up grayshirting and not joining the Wolverines until a year later. The reason for this is because Michigan doesn't want to sign too many recruits for 2012, and that could end up happening if Clark and safety Jarrod Wilson both commit. Wilson is expected to decide soon, and if he picks Michigan, Clark will grayshirt. If not, Clark will be a part of the 2012 class.

Here is more info on what grayshirting means:

To those that aren't familiar, a greyshirt would mean Jeremy would commit to Michigan and pay his way through school, likely only for a semester. Once the semester is up he would then be able to earn a scholarship, the greyshirt preserves his eligibility while not counting towards the 2012 class numbers.

Clark has not yet been rated by any of the major recruiting sites. His offer list on Rivals includes Akron, Ball State, Central Michigan, Illinois, NC State, Ohio and Toledo.
