While making the rounds through Texas last month, Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris offered this explosive play-maker.

Cedar Hill High School junior Laquvionte Gonzalez could play either running back or wide receiver at the next level. Morris offered the 5-foot-11, 170-pound prospect as a receiver.

Though Clemson is pretty far from his Dallas-area home, Gonzalez has an interest in the Tigers.

"It's always good for the experience," he told CUTigers recently. "It is far from home, but it would be a good experience."

A visit could be in the cards in the not too distant future.

"I'm going to try to get up there for Junior Day, probably the one in April," Gonzalez said.

So far, he's made junior day trips to Texas A&M and Baylor. He may also head to Oklahoma on March 3.

Along with Clemson, Arkansas, Baylor, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, TCU and Oklahoma have offered. Gonzalez has reached double-digits with his offer number.

"I don't have any favorites. I'm looking at every school," he said.

What does he know about Clemson?

"They've got that true freshman, Sammy Watkins. I know they've got him. He's one of my favorite players. I don't really know too much about them."

As a junior, he rushed for 919 yards and 11 touchdowns and caught 22 passes for 346 yards and five more scores.
