Clemson Becomes Ninth School to Offer Gladewater’s Daylon Mack
Two days after receiving an offer from Miami, Daylon Mack grabbed another Atlantic Coast Conference offer.
Gladewater's 6-foot-1, 310-pound junior defensive tackle tweeted early Wednesday afternoon that Clemson offered him.
Mack's offer list, which is the longest of any of East Texas' nine juniors with at least one FBS offer, now is as follows: Alabama, Clemson, Miami, Oklahoma, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.
Mack's sophomore season included 64 tackles, 16 for loss, six sacks, and six fumble recoveries to earn Defensive Newcomer of the Year honors on the ETSN.fm East Texas Football Super Team.
He won overall Defensive MVP honors and the top defensive lineman award at the ETSN.fm Football Recruiting Combine at APEC training facility in Tyler on May 19 with an eye-opening performance in testing and lineman one-on-ones. He ran the fastest 40-yard dash of any of the event’s 21 players 230 pounds or heavier with a 4.84-second laser-timed run. He also had the second-most bench reps at 225 pounds with 21 and recorded vertical and broad jumps of 30 inches and nine feet even, respectively.
Mack is the third player in East Texas' 2014 or 2015 class to receive an offer from Clemson. The Tigers have also offered 6-foot, 160-pound Mount Pleasant senior receiver K.D. Cannon and 6-foot, 190-pound Newton senior athlete Kevin Shorter. Cannon and Shorter each have more than 20 offers.
