The 6-4, 275 pound star defender traveled to Williams Bryce Stadium Saturday night to watch the annual Palmetto state battle between the Tigers and the Gamecocks. "I went to the game with my father and a friend," stated Raysor.

Raysor came away very impressed with the Tigers. "The Tigers really came to play. The Tigers looked like they were ready. Clemson was real tough this year." The Raysor family left the game during the 3rd quarter as the outcome had already been decided.

Did the games outcome have any impact on Raysor's commitment to the Gamecocks? "My aunt was talking to me about it. I told her it didn't really have much of an impact. They are still about the same but Clemson is moving up a little bit."

Raysor wants to relax now that his senior season is over and then take his visits before making a final decision. "I'll see after I come back from my final visit to Clemson. I'm relaxing now that the season is over. I started basketball practice last Wednesday." The standout defender has an official visit scheduled with Clemson for January 9. He has not set his official visit with the Gamecocks yet.

Coach West is trying his best to keep the Tigers in the mix for the star defender. "Coach West came by my school last Friday to talk with my coach," stated the prize recruit.
