The top 25 players in the Big 12: No. 23
By David Ubben
We're counting down to the beginning of the season with the top 25 players in the Big 12. The official list is locked away in a vault in an undisclosed location, but we'll be revealing players from the bottom of the list all the way to No. 1.
Making the case for Clark: It didn't take long for Clark to make a huge impact. He redshirted in 2011, but established himself as one of the Big 12's best offensive linemen in his first season on the field. The 6-foot-5, 303-pound native of Rockdale, Texas has good size and solid technique.
The Football Writers Association of America recognized that and named him a first-team Freshman All-American a year ago. The redshirt freshman won a starting job quickly and started all 13 games a year ago, filling a big hole for the Red Raiders. Last season was one of the best offensive lines we've seen in awhile in Lubbock, and Clark was a big reason why.
