Niceville (Fla.) High School wide receiver/cornerback Elijah Stove has received his first BCS scholarship offer. The 6-foot-1 and 170-pound sophomore now has three offers.

Niceville (Fla.) High School sophomore wide receiver/ slot back/cornerback Elijah Stove has received his first BCS scholarship offer. The 6-foot-1 and 170-pound speedster already had two offers from Florida Atlantic and Florida A&M but received his biggest offer to-date this week.

"Clemson offered Elijah," said Niceville assistant coach Adron Robinson of the 2016 prospects latest offer. This season Stove has been hot on both sides of the ball. On offense the sophomore has split his time at slot back and wide receiver. He has rushed the ball 30 times for 224 yards and five touchdowns from the slot back position. As a wide receiver Stove has caught 14 passes for 215 yards and two scores.

The underclassman has also been productive on defense, making 17 tackles from his cornerback position. Stove has also intercepted two passes and broken up three more in nine games.

"Eli is a very versatile and explosive player, he is a gamer," said Coach Robinson. "I believe with a full off-season of lifting weights and conditioning that the sky is the limit for "Young Money" which is what we have dubbed Elijah."
