Palmetto's Raymond to be at USF Pro Day

Mistral Raymond is scheduled to be among the former USF players who will be participating in USF's Pro Day on Thursday.

The Palmetto High graduate has been mentioned as a possible late round draft choice this year. The thing that has endeared him to pro scouts is his versatility and ability to play either safety or cornerback.

Individual workouts are scheduled to begin around 2 p.m. at the USF Track & Field Stadium. Fans will be permitted to sit in the stands during the series of tests the players are put through. Other testing will be done inside the facility and is closed to the public.

In his last collegiate game, Raymond was selected MVP of his Mountain All-Star team in the inaugural Dixie Gridiron Classic in St. George, Utah.

He was credited with seven tackles, one interception and two forced fumbles in leading his team to a 17-13 victory over the Pacific All-Stars.
Raymond played cornerback and safety and was the gunner on the punt teams. Two of the turnovers forced by Raymond led to scores and his interception late in the game sealed the victory.

While serving on the punt team, Raymond popped the ball loose from a returner and the Mountain team recovered it and eventually scored a touchdown.

In the fourth quarter he intercepted a pass that on his own two yard line and returned it about 35 yards to end a potential game winning drive.
