Manchester QB Brendon Clark decommits from Wake Forest

Manchester's QB Brendon Clark (17) during the first half against Hermitage at Manchester in Chesterfield County VA Fri. Oct. 27, 2017.

Manchester quarterback Brendon Clark, a rising senior, is reopening his recruitment, the team's Twitter account announced Sunday night.

Last summer, Clark (6-foot-2, 213 pounds) committed to Wake Forest. At the time, he held only one other offer, and it came from Maryland. He said he liked what Wake Forest had to offer academically as well as athletically.

He was named All-Metro as a junior, throwing for 162 yards per game and totaling 28 touchdowns compared to four interceptions.

He was ranked No. 2 on The Times-Dispatch's Junior List, a ranking of the area's top recruits. Coming in No. 1 was lineman / linebacker Hakeem Beamon, who is now slated to be Clark's teammate at Manchester.

Recently, Clemson, Notre Dame and Tennessee have offered him. Clark improved his profile by competing at the Elite 11 quarterback competition in Los Angeles. He was one of 24 quarterbacks nationwide to qualify for the event. At the Charlotte regional, he was named MVP of the camp.

Clark likely will become the third Richmond-area quarterback to sign with a Power 5 team in the past nine years. He'll follow Glen Allen's Alex Faniel (Mississippi) in 2017 and Collegiate's Wilton Speight (Michigan, UCLA) in 2014.
