LB/DE Peter Kalambayi Profile
Butler High School rising junior Peter Kalambayi started the Wednesday workout at linebacker before moving to defensive end.
"They're evaluating me at both [positions]," he told CUTigers.com recently. "They told me I could play at the bandit, which is like half d-end, half linebacker."
Kalambayi, who checks in at 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, enjoyed working alongside defensive coordinator/linebackers coach Kevin Steele.
"It was good. He helped me a lot and was pretty hard on me. I like their defense that they run," Kalambayi said.
As a sophomore, Kalambayi registered 106 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and an interception from the middle linebacker spot.
He'll play outside linebacker this fall. As a freshman, he played defensive end.
Kalambayi was back at defensive end with Marion Hobby at the end of his Clemson camp stop.
"He's a really good coach," Kalambayi said of Hobby. "I hadn't played defensive end in a couple of years, since I was a freshman. He helped me out in the drills. When it came time for one-on-ones, I was better prepared."
Clemson is already among several schools that have offered Kalambayi. Michigan, Florida, Virginia Tech, N.C. State and Duke have also stepped forward.
"They're all up there, but I like Clemson, though. I like Florida, too. Those two stand out," he said.
There are several factors working in favor of Clemson.
"It's close to home. They have a pretty good graduation rate. They try to get their football players educated," Kalambayi said. "I like the atmosphere. They have a lot of tradition there. I like the coaches. They seem like they know what they're doing."
