WR Larry Raper Profile
Sunday evening former Clemson verbal commitment Larry Raper heard that Dabo Swinney will remain the head coach of the Tigers.
"I think it will be good for them. It will probably be good for me too if Napier is still there," Raper said.
Does the announcement of Dabo Swinney as head coach change anything?
"It will a little bit. I might firm things back up with Clemson. I will wait and talk to coach Napier first. I will see how it goes," said Raper.
The two-way standout didn't make the trip to Death Valley Saturday, but he did watch the Tigers.
"I didn't go to the game, but I watched it. Clemson played pretty well. I wasn't really surprised with the outcome," said Raper.
The Shrine Bowl standout believes he could play early at receiver at Clemson.
"I feel like that is where I can play college ball," he said. "I probably don't have the size for running back. I could probably put on the weight, but I think I am better fit for receiver."
The speedster actually heard about the new Clemson coach from the team the Tigers whipped on Saturday.
"South Carolina called today. They told me about coach Swinney getting the job. They are coming by to see me tomorrow. They will be coming by the school and the house," said Raper.
Are there any other schools that may come by this week?
"I think [North] Carolina is coming also. I've had problems with my phone so I am not sure," replied Raper.
When asked if he has a new leader, Raper responded, "I really can't say. I want to talk with the Clemson coaches first."
With his Shelby season over, Larry looks forward to playing with the top players from the Carolinas in the Shrine Bowl.
"I'm really looking forward to that," he added.
