For the third time in less than two weeks, Daylon Mack picked up an ACC offer.

Gladewater’s standout defensive tackle said via Twitter that Florida State offered him Wednesday night.

The Seminoles join Miami and Clemson as the ACC programs to offer the 6-foot-1, 311-pound junior since July 8.

Mack talked to on Wednesday morning about his Miami and Clemson offers. He said he’s enjoyed getting to know Clemson’s coaching staff, while Miami’s defensive tradition attracts him to the Hurricanes.

Mack had a big sophomore season to catch the eyes of recruiters across the country. He recorded 64 tackles, 16 for loss, six sacks, and six fumble recoveries and was named East Texas Super Team Defensive Newcomer of the Year.

Florida State was active in East Texas in the mid to late 1990’s when the Seminoles signed John Tyler defensive end David Warren, Jefferson offensive lineman Montrae Holland, and Nacogdoches tight end Patrick Hughes. FSU has offered three players in East Texas’ 2014 class: Newton athlete Kevin Shorter Longview receiver Dorian Leonard, and Mount Pleasant receiver K.D. Cannon.
