loves football and sports so much that he doesn’t want to leave them behind, even when his playing days are over.

The 6-4, 290-pounder is the 4-star offensive tackle prospect out of Lithonia (GA) Martin Luther King who got an offer from Clemson on Tuesday this past week [one of over a dozen offers he has received], so the end of his playing career still appears far off into the future.

That doesn’t mean he can't go ahead and plan, however.

“I would like to work for someone like ESPN or Fox or CBS in broadcasting,” Outlaw told TigerNet Tuesday after receiving the Clemson offer. “I would definitely like to stay around sports, and I wouldn’t mind going to a school that has some form of media broadcasting. But it just comes from the fact that I have been around my sports my whole life, and I love it.”

The first decision Outlaw has to make, however, is where he plans on going to college. He has plenty of suitors and has offers from schools like Clemson, Georgia, Arkansas, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina.

The Georgia and Clemson offers came Tuesday.

“Georgia offered today,” Outlaw said. “It was an offer that I really wanted because Georgia is a home-state school. I remember watching them when I was growing up. I am also really looking forward to learning more about Clemson, and I am going on a visit there on March 3rd. I am really looking forward to seeing the campus, and seeing what the coaches have to tell me about their campus.”

Outlaw will visit Auburn this weekend, Clemson the following weekend and is still looking to get to either Arkansas or Florida before the end of the spring.

As a result, he says he doesn’t have a favorite at this point.


"I am just open to see all of the places and see what they have to offer,” he said. “When I make my decision, I want that to be it. I want it to be a firm decision. I want to sit down with all of the staffs and see what their plans are for me.”

He would, however, like to play early.

“I am definitely going to look at the depth chart,” he said. “I want to play early and make an impact early. And my relationship with the coaches is also very important to me.”

Outlaw said his best attribute is that he is athletic for an offensive lineman.

“I would say I am very athletic for my position,” he said. “I think I do a lot of things well, and I can block into the second level. I know I have a lot of things to work on, but I feel like I do a lot of things well.”
