North Brunswick (Leland, N.C.) junior defensive end Keilin Rayner spoke with Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, marking the first time he'd had any contact with Clemson. Rayner and Steele spoke two Mondays ago.
"He pretty much talked to me about Clemson," Rayner told CUTigers recently. "They want me to come down there and they'll offer me a scholarship. He pretty much wanted me to come down there for junior day and check out the facilities."
Rayner admitted that he doesn't know too much about Clemson.
"I know it's in South Carolina. I've watched a couple of games, and know they're in the ACC," Rayner said.
East Carolina and Duke had offers in before the Tigers.
"I like Duke," he said, when asked for his favorite. "The future, that fact that you have the future you can have."
Recently, he's taken visits to Duke and N.C. State. A visit to South Carolina for junior day is set up for this weekend.
Rayner had a 127 tackles, seven tackles for loss and two sacks during his junior season.
He's listed at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds.
Steele's offer a big surprise
