NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.-Defensive end Carlos Dunlap of Fort Dorchester High has picked up two additional major scholarship offers.
"Auburn and Florida have offered me a full scholarship now," he said. "I think it's good. I like both of them."
The offer from the Gators was of particular interest to the 6-foot-6, 245-pounder.

"That's real good," he said. "I like their school. They are pretty good. They are good at everything and they've got good fan support.
"Their stadium is one of the biggest stadiums, I like that. It's important to me to play in front of a lot of people."
Dunlap is unsure if he will take an unofficial visit to Gainesville in the coming months.
"It depends on how my summer works out," he said.
He added that he had hoped to make an unofficial visit to Auburn, but missed his trip.
Dunlap had 103 tackles (22 for loss) his junior year and earned scholarship offers from Clemson and South Carolina as a result. The additional offers have opened up his options a bit.
"I'm not sure if I want to stay in-state or go out-of-state," he said, "Now that I've got out-of-state offers, that gives me an equal chance to go in-state or out-of-state."
Despite his high tackle count during his junior season, Dunlap likes to play assignment football and is just fine letting his teammates make plays.
Charlie Strong is recruiting Dunlap for the Gators. Strong recruited the area of South Carolina Dunlap plays in when he was defensive coordinator at the University of South Carolina from 1999-2002. Terry Price is the recruiter of record for Auburn. Steve Spurrier Jr. and new defensive line coach Brad Lawing are recruiting for the Gamecocks while Clemson running backs coach Burton Burns is leading the charge for the Tigers.
"If I have to stay on the line to open it up for the linebackers I can do it, or I can stop the run myself," Dunlap said. "But I mostly contain and open up the options for my linebackers."
Dunlap will attend the Clemson NIKE Camp on May 21.
