In addition, "Colgate, Manhattan, Fairfield, Holy Cross, Princeton, Penn, and Brown have called and said they were also coming in to visit," said Jaklitsch.

*Rayner has a 3.95 grade point average. He will take the SAT for the first time in November. He can then start taking official visits," said Jaklitsch.
