Tonight in Columbus, Indiana close to 15,000 people will cram into the stadium home of Columbus East to watch them battle cross-town rival Columbus North. The game is highlighted by Columbus East junior running back Markell Jones who rushed for 260 yards and 5 touchdowns last week, rightfully so. However there is another name college coaches across the nation are paying close attention to and that is Tyson Clark. Clark is a senior at Columbus North and he anchors the massive offensive line. Standing at 6’2 and weighing 285 pounds, Clark packs a mean punch. One look at his film and you can tell he likes to be physical and punish the guy across from him. Clark is receiving interest from coaches representing every conference in Division I football. The likes of Florida, Michigan and BYU are taking interest in the offensive lineman. Columbus North has produced several Divison I offensive lineman in recent years (Jake Reed-Indiana, Matt Krempel-Northern Illinois, Thomas Shoaf-BYU) and it seems Clark will follow suit.
