Florida commit high on Clemson heading into visit

Clemson’s guest list of recruits for Saturday’s game against Florida State features a few prospects committed elsewhere, including a pair of Florida commits in the class of 2019.

One of those is Dunnellon (Fla.) four-star wide receiver Maurice Goolsby, who will be among the headlining names in Death Valley for the 3:30 p.m. kickoff.

It will mark his second visit to Clemson and first this year.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what they have to offer me, how I could fit in with this offense,” Goolsby told The Clemson Insider.

Goolsby (6-5, 195) said he has heard from Clemson of late.

“They’re all excited that I’m coming up,” Goolsby said, “and coach (Jeff) Scott was telling me how I would fit perfectly in their offense.”

Goolsby is ranked by Rivals as a top-10 receiver and top-30 overall prospect in his class. He committed to Florida in June over offers from Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Southern Cal and others.

While Goolsby remains on the Gators’ commitment list right now, he is waiting to see how things shake out at Florida after former head coach Jim McElwain parted ways with the program last month.

“I’m just seeing how things play out,” he said.

Goolsby said he is high on Clemson heading into the visit.

What stands out to him about the Tigers?

“The energy and emotion that the players play with,” he said. “It seems like it would be a blast to play in Death Valley.”

Fellow Florida commit Jaquaze Sorrells, a junior defensive lineman from Largo, Fla., will join Goolsby at Clemson on Saturday.
