Butler High School [Matthews, N.C.] junior linebacker Peter Kalambayi last visited Clemson for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp. Prior to the camp stop, he was in town for the Orange and White spring game.

A third trip is in the works.

"I'll be at a Clemson. I don't know when, but I'll be at a Clemson game soon," Kalambayi recently told CUTigers.com. "[And] probably South Carolina, the schools close to me."

The 2013 Scout100 member recounted his previous trip to Clemson.

"I like it there. It was a really good atmosphere for the spring game, I can't imagine what it's like for a real game," he said.

A road trip south down I-77 is appealing for a couple of reasons.

"Their defense has been looking pretty good," Kalambayi said of the Gamecocks. "They're close. I'd like to go see them, because I haven't been there yet."

Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, Michigan, Virginia Tech and Purdue have already offered the 6-foot-2, 235-pound prospect.

He claimed no leaders.

"I'm all open again," Kalambayi said. "There's a lot more schools out there. I don't know about any favorites right now."

A decision will be made within the next 365 days.

"I'm going to decide before national signing day, so maybe sometime during my senior year," he said. "Maybe at the beginning of my senior year."

As a sophomore, Kalambayi recorded 106 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and an interception.

Through the first two games of his junior year, he had 23 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble and a pass breakup.
