The recruitment of five-star tight end Chris Clark (Avon, Connecticut) continues to be one of the biggest Michigan football recruiting storylines as we charge towards signing day, and he revealed when his commitment will drop via his Twitter account.

Clark will be choosing between Michigan and UCLA on ESPNU live on National Signing Day on Feb. 4.

He decommited back in December just hours after Brady Hoke was dismissed as Michigan's head football coach. Jim Harbaugh has continued to make him a priority and the program hosted Clark for an official visit this past weekend.

Things went very well, Clark told Nick Baumgartner of MLive.

"It's crazy, he's really intense, and you really like that," Clark told MLive on Sunday. "He grew on me a lot. I didn't know what to think at first, I wasn't sure what he'd be like. But once I left, he really, really grew on me.

"He's the best coach I think I've sat down with. I just think he's awesome."

...

"He said, taking this job, he can't fail," Clark said. "He said he can't fail, because he cares way too much about the city, about the University of Michigan and he's going to work harder at this job than anything he's ever done in his life.

"He's committed into turning Michigan back into the best program in America, and I really think they'll get there. I've never met a coach who is that competitive and that intense."

We'll see what happens after he takes his official to UCLA this weekend, but the new staff made a great impression with him and Michigan seems poised to be the hat that Clark chooses during his announcement.
