Kenny Dillingham is on the pursuit to build his program his way, and it starts with his first real off season of recruiting both players and funding for NIL. It was inevitable key players on and off the field would enter the portal, one of those was veteran defensive back Jordan Clark.
Clark spent his last four years in Tempe and became a formidable leader, and committed to Notre Dame for his final year of eligibility.

“I wanted to spend my last year somewhere where I could grow as a student athlete, & I don’t think there’s anywhere better for me to do that than ND.“https://t.co/12Es8V6BL9 pic.twitter.com/noMkPPkKwS
Ryan, Clark’s father, played a major part in his upbringing. The former NFL safety who won Super Bowl VXIII with the Pittsburgh Steelers, said kind words of his son’s former program.
Today on #DCandRC I got a chance to thank @KennyDillingham for doing something most coaches wouldn’t do. He called Coach Freeman let him know what kind of young man @Jclark21_ was. I am forever grateful to him! He’s going to build a winner, because he’s the right kind of man. pic.twitter.com/uC4sJs9tZq— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) December 6, 2023
Clark will spend his final season in Notre Dame before, in all likelihood, declaring for the 2025 NFL Draft.
