Cedar Hill (Texas) 2015 running back Aca'cedric Ware has seen the recruiting process quicken with two offers coming in over the last week.
First there was the Clemson Tigers who delivered the news on Monday
"Clemson, I really like Clemson," Ware said. "Clemson has been one of my top schools for awhile and I was very excited when they offered. That's where most of my family went. They went Clemson, so it would be nice for me to attend Clemson."
Much of Ware's family lives in South Carolina and his dad spent a year redshirting on the Clemson Tiger football team.
Offensive coordinator Chad Morris was the coach who made the call to Cedar Hill, and the Clemson coach left a positive impression on the Cedar Hill running back.
"Yes sir, I talked to coach Morris the day he offered," Ware said. "It was great. Coach Morris, he's a great guy. I could tell he was very excited too."
On Thursday, it was the Houston Cougars who did the honors. Ware had not talked to Houston before speaking to Rivals.com but he hoped to change that in the near future.
"I'm hoping to very soon, but that was a great feeling too," Ware said. "It was my second offer so that felt good."
When it comes to the recruiting process, Ware is taking everything in right now. However, he does have a few schools who have caught his attention. He mentioned Clemson being among his top schools for awhile and the Tigers are joined by Stanford, Alabama, Oklahoma, LSU, and TCU.
"(They are) Childhood favorites and I love the coaching, "Ware said. "Coach Nick Saban, I love his coaching style. The way he coaches, the way he drives his players to become better. That's what I look for in a coach."
Ware hopes to visit Alabama and Clemson soon and he plans to attend a couple of junior days in Texas.
"I'm going to Texas A&M's junior day and I'm going to Baylor's junior day," Ware said.
As a junior, Ware rushed for 1,270 yards and 11 touchdowns as he helped Cedar Hill capture the 5A Division II state championship.
"This past year started off kind of bad for me because I missed the first game and I got hurt again in the third game and missed five games after that. So I didn't play a full season," Ware said. "After I got back going I did my thing. I made sure we won every game I was a part of. I put my heart on the field. I left everything on the field. I'm just happy I had a nice season this year."
