Duke has been a favorite of DE Keilin Rayner of Leland, NC and still is, but the Blue Devils have company now. USC defensive line coach Brad Lawing offered Rayner Thursday and the Gamecocks have pulled even with the Blue Devils on Rayner's favorites list.
"I like the SEC because it's on top," Rayner said. "South Carolina would be my second leader because it's in the SEC. I like the Duke coaching staff and their new facility."
Rayner also has offers from Clemson, East Carolina and NC State. He's also hearing from Auburn, Tennessee, Maryland and Wake Forest.
Rayner said he talks regularly with Clemson recruiters Kevin Steele and Dan Brooks. And he plans to visit USC this summer.
