The offer was handed to King High School in Lithonia to Joshua Outlaw, a high school teammate of 2012 defensive end Kenderius Whitehead.

"I got it on the 11th," Outlaw told CUTigers of his Clemson offer. "My coach sent me a text and told me about it on the 11th."

Clemson defensive ends coach Marion Hobby recruits the area for the Tigers.

"They showed interest in me when he came to the games. He really liked my film and was looking forward to recruiting me. We got to touch base there," Outlaw said. "I went to the Junior Bowl and my mail picked up real fast. Then, they picked up interest. They said they wanted me to come down there and take a visit."

He plans to make his first trip up to Clemson for the March 3 Junior Day.

"I enjoyed their season, watching Sammy Watkins this year. Of course, I know James Davis, C.J. Spiller and [Andre] Ellington," Outlaw said. "I've watched the quite a bit."

The high-powered offense run by Chad Morris has in place also caught his eye.

"I really enjoy the offense. It's a very high-octane offense, like our offense," Outlaw said.

Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Vanderbilt, South Florida and East Carolina have offered, along with Clemson.

The 6-foot-3, 270-pound prospect listed no favorites.

"Definitely depth chart, my major -- communications and where I'm comfortable, where I'm going to be the next four years, I want to make sure I'm going to be there," he said.
