Defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks relayed the message to the Mount Tabor High School [Winston Salem, N.C.] sophomore wide receiver.

"Coach Brooks actually told my dad first while I was signing in at Clemson. Then I walked up to him and he told me," Deablo said, during a recent interview with CUTigers.

The news caught the 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect by surprise.

"I didn't expect it that early, because they just started looking at me," he said.

Deablo shared some of his emotions after the offer, "Excited, happy, like the best feeling in the world."

That was his second trip to the Clemson campus of the season. Deablo also visited for the Boston College game.

"I didn't really get to go around the campus, but the facilities are really nice. I like it very much," he said.

As for the environment, that was impressive, too.

"I love the people. They treat you like family and the environment is just great," Deablo said.

Duke, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest have since stepped in with their offers. In addition to the Clemson trips, he went to games at N.C. State, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

With no list of favorites to speak of, Deablo will consider a few factors as he moves through the recruiting process.

"Environment, people, the education, how many people graduate from there, stuff like that," he said.

Deablo had over 800 yards receiving and scored nine touchdowns as a sophomore.
