Daryll Clark said today that he talks to former teammate Michael Robinson once a week.
Robinson was the Nittany Lions’ quarterback in 2005, when Clark redshirted, and is now a running back with the San Fransisco 49ers.
"We talk about pretty much everything," Clark said." We talk about school. And as far as football goes, any ups and downs I might be facing."
Robinson sent Clark a text message after watching a clip of one of his electrifying runs during Saturday's 45-14 win over Oregon State at Beaver. Robinson joked in the text that Clark should have scored on the play.
Clark said he doesn’t mind being compared to Robinson.
"Any time you compare me to a guy who only had one year to start, without having to share time, and you lead a team to 11-1 record and to being a national contender, and the numbers you put up, the leadership you had and the success you had, I’ll take that compliment any day," Clark said.
"When they call me little Mike Rob, I’m just saying, `Thank you all the time." Because he was a great player and he got it done. He was a straight up playmaker."
