Manchester's Kei'Trel Clark breaks up a pass intended for Monacan's Arturo Mendoza Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018.

Football player Tre Clark, who made national headlines when he announced he would leave the Liberty University football program because of what he described as cultural incompetence in the school's administration, said he will transfer to Louisville.

Clark was one of two Black players who announced he was leaving Liberty on June 22 because of issues that Clark said were bigger than football.

“However due to the cultural [incompetence] within multiple levels of leadership, it does not line up with my code of ethics,” he wrote on Twitter. 

Tayvion Land, a graduate of Ocean Lakes in Virginia Beach, also announced he was leaving the team. 

Clark (5-foot-11, 165 pounds) was a member of the Class of 2019 at Manchester High and helped the team win the Class 6 state championship in 2018. He committed to Charlotte before his senior season began but reopened his recruitment the following December. He picked Liberty over James Madison, Marshall and others. 

He becomes the second Richmond-area player to join the Louisville football team in recent history, following Mekhi Becton, the Highland Springs alumnus who was taken in the first round of the NFL draft in April.
