For Glenville High School’s head coach Ted Ginn Sr., Frank Clark played a variety of positions in high school, but he had the least interest in playing the position that Ginn thought he was most naturally suited for (outside linebacker or defensive end).
Clark was a defensive end, tight end, and outside linebacker who was awarded three stars nationwide. On February 2, 2011, he signed his national letter of intent to enroll at Michigan.
In the Sugar Bowl game against Virginia Tech on January 3, 2012, as a rookie for the 2011 Wolverines, Clark had an interception that led to one of Michigan’s two touchdowns.
For felony second-degree home invasion and accused theft of a MacBook Air, Clark was suspended from the squad the following offseason before the 2012 team’s season opening against Alabama.
A few weeks later, he was allowed to return to practice. After missing a week, he eventually entered a guilty plea to the felony charge.
He might have received a sentence of up to 15 years in prison and a $3,000 fine, but he qualified for the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which would have allowed for a sentence that would be expunged from his record after fulfilling the terms of probation.
In each of the team’s final two regular-season games against Iowa and Ohio State, Clark got quarterback sacks. Jimmy Garoppolo was sacked in the end zone by Clark during the seventh week of the 2022 season, giving him his first career safety. He was given a two-game suspension for his arrest in June 2021 two days later, on October 24, 2022.
