Largo's Rayner gets his signing out of the way early

Largo defensive lineman Adarius Rayner wasted no time making his college choice official. He arrived at the school at 6:45 a.m. to sign his letter of intent to go to Indiana University and faxed over his paperwork at 7 a.m., the earliest time possible for a recruit.

Rayner originally committed to Colorado State in October, but switched to Indiana after his recruiting trip last week after making an official visit to the campus where he saw snow for the first time.

"I liked the academic program that the school had for its players," Rayner said. "Fifty players on the team have a 3.0 GPA and the program graduates 94 percent of its players." 

Rayner was the only Packer to sign on Wednesday. But he kept Largo's six -year streak alive of having a Division I-A recruit.
