Tigers first to offer WR

WINSTON SALEM, N.C. -- Divine Deablo is a prospect on the rise.

The 2016 Mount Tabor wide receiver spoke with FOX Sports Next about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Last week, sophomore wide receiver Divine Deablo received his first scholarship offer from Clemson.

"It was exciting – I didn't expect it," said the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Deablo, who is also being recruited by North Carolina, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. "It just felt great.

"(Defensive line) coach (Dan) Brooks and (wide receivers) coach (Jeff) Scott are recruiting me. They're both cool."

He has already visited Clemson.

"I've been down there twice," he said "I went to the Boston College game and Florida State game," he said. "The atmosphere was great. There are some nice people down there."

Which school could be the next to offer?

"I think Virginia Tech could be next," he said. "They've really been trying to get me to go up there and visit."

In regards to the rest of the season, Deablo has more visits in mind.

"I'm going up to N.C. State this weekend," Deablo said. "I also want to go to North Carolina and Virginia Tech before the end of the season."

Although his recruitment is gaining momentum, Deablo's focused on having a strong finish to the season.

"Individually, I want to have over 1,000 receiving yards," he said. "Team-wise, we want to win a state championship. We just have to keeping working hard in practice."

Mount Tabor is 6-3 and hosts Parkland tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m.
