Rainey Adjusting to Move to Linebacker

Coming out of high school in 2012, Kelvin Rainey was seen as someone who could have success on both sides of the ball. He played tight end at Yulee High in Florida, but it looked like his potential might be the highest at linebacker. This spring, he's really getting a chance to test that theory after he was moved to weakside linebacker. Rainey redshirted last year in order to get bigger, stronger and more acclimated to college life, and was listed as a tight end. But with the Gamecocks losing their two-deep at each linebacker spot, the coaches felt he could help the team out more at linebacker.
