The Clemson coaching staff offered Greer tight end Desmond Parks after a strong performance at the Tommy Bowden Football Camp last week.

"Coach Scott offered last night," Parks told CUTigers.com. "He talked with my family and made the offer. I was excited. I mean it is a great opportunity to play football at Clemson."

How did Clemson's offer impact his decision about where to play college football?

"As I make my decision I will give that consideration that Clemson was my first big-time offer. Clemson is a great school to go to," replied Parks.

The Palmetto state standout spoke with CUTigers.com as he returned home from camp at the University of Florida.

"I am on my way back now," he said. "It went pretty good. I had a good workout. I met a lot of the players. I had a good time with the coaches."

When does the Greer standout plan to make a decision?

"I will probably make my decision in the next months. I want to have it done before school starts," replied Parks.

A few familiar faces saw Parks at the Florida camp.

"I knew a couple of players from the Clemson camp. They remembered me. I am not sure of their names though," said Parks.

A decision from Florida about an offer could come later this week.

"They wanted me to send in some academic stuff. They said they will call me on Friday to let me know about an offer," said Parks. "North Carolina, Presbyterian and Western Carolina have offered. I am also hearing from South Carolina, Vanderbilt and North Carolina State."

A return trip to Clemson is planned for later this week.

"I am going back to Clemson on Friday for an unofficial visit. In July I think I am going back to Florida for Friday Night Lights," said Parks.

Last year as a junior Parks recorded 29 catches for 403 yards and five touchdowns.
