Clemson hit the Sunshine State Thursday and delivered offers to three South Florida products out of Deerfield Beach High School.

2020 running back Jaylan Knighton and 2020 receiver Deajaun McDougle and 2019 defensive end Brandon Dorlus announced the offers on social media Thursday.

Knighton topped 1,200 rushing yards with 13 touchdowns last season as a sophomore. The son of former Louisville running back Rodney Knighton, Jaylan also picked up an offer from Oregon Thursday to go with offers from Louisville, as well as Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State and more Power 5 programs.

McDougle (5-10 175) has garnered interest nationwide as well, with Oregon, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, Ole Miss, North Carolina and South Carolina among the suitors.

Dorlus (6-3 240) also received an offer from Louisville Thursday, adding to recent offers from Tennessee and Pittsburgh, as well as NC State.
