Two players training in the tristate area have earned invites to the NFL Combine in what will be the biggest stage for them to impress representatives from all 32 NFL teams.
A source tells Metro that Jordan Morgan, an offensive lineman from Kutztown and defensive back Chuck Clark from Virginia Tech will both be headed to Indianapolis, Indiana later this month for the NFL Combine. Both players are currently training for the combine at TEST Football Academy.
A former preferred walk-on at Kutztown, Morgan became a four-year starter at the Division II program and was given the Gene Upshaw Award as the division’s top program. He impressed recently at the Senior Bowl and was one of the standout offensive linemen at the event.
As for Clark, he is the latest in a line of Hokie defensive backs primed to be drafted. A three-year starter, Clark has 274 career tackles and two interceptions. He’s generating a fair amount of interest from a number of teams the source said.
The two players are currently training at TEST Football Academy, located at the TEST Sports Club facility in Martinsville, N.J. The site was responsible for the combine and Pro Day training for players such as Patrick Peterson, Ryan Clady, Duron Harmon, Jamaal Westerman, Joe Flacco, Eric Foster and a number of other prominent NFL players.
