Clemson sees 2013 PF
Nearly a month to the day of Ray's stop at Boone High School, Schulyer Rimmer was in Clemson for the season opening football game.
"It went really well," Rimmer recently told CUTigers.com of his visit to Clemson. "The campus, it was really nice. It's a college town, so I think that really benefits the athletes. There's so much focus on the school and them succeeding.
"That puts a lot of pressure, good pressure, to do your best, whether it's on the court or in the classroom. I think that really helps the student athletes stay focused."
The three-star power forward was impressed with what he saw around campus, and also what's to come.
"The facilities are really nice," Rimmer said. "Apparently their practice court is supposed to be 12 years old. I couldn't even tell that they were five years old. They looked brand new. I heard they were getting new facilities either this year or next year."
Visiting Tigertown was a treat for the junior prospect from Boone High School in Orlando. His grandfather ran track for the Tigers when Press Maravich was the basketball coach.
"He said, sometimes they would run through the gymnasium and Pete would be in there doing drills and stuff. That's pretty cool," Rimmer said.
His interest in Clemson isn't just helped by the family ties.
"They're just a school you hear about all the time, watching them in the tournament this year, the success they've had in the past few years," he said. "The football program is one of the better programs. I've just been hearing about Clemson for a very long time."
Rimmer's also visited Butler and Penn State this fall.
Virginia Tech, Miami, UCF, UAB, Penn State and USF have offered.
Last month, Clemson head coach Brad Brownell explained where the Tigers stood, regarding an offer.
"Due to a few kids transferring out a few years ago, it kind of messed up how many scholarships he's going to be able to offer my year," Rimmer said. "He said he's got, at most, two offers to give out my year, and one of them is already taken up. He said that might change and he doesn't want to offer me now and then things not work out and have to retract that offer later on."
Clemson remains in his lead group along with Butler, Stanford, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Georgia Tech and Miami.
"I'm not anywhere near deciding right now. Things might change and I might decide early," Rimmer said.
