On National Signing Day last week, 4-star defensive end/running back Deondre Clark signed a National Letter of Intent with the LSU Tigers.

However, the Tigers never officially announced the signing because they wanted Clark to have his day by holding a ceremony to announce his intentions.

Clark, who attends Douglass High School in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, had his ceremony pushed back because of the weather on two different occasions.

On Monday, LSU finally officially announced Clark as a member of their class.

“Deondre is a very athletic and versatile player who was a standout on both sides of the ball in high school,” LSU head coach Les Miles said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have him join this class. He fills a need for us at defensive end. He’ll be able to come in and compete for playing time right away.”

The 6’2.5, 238-pound Clark projects as a defensive end. According to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings, he is considered the 11th best strong side defensive end prospect, the third best overall prospect from the state of Oklahoma and the 149th best overall prospect in the class of 2014.
