At Latta High School (S.C.), Raymond was named National High School Player of the Year in 2002, led his high school to two state championships and a high school career record of 104-9. He was named to the All-American Team and he set 2 South Carolina state scoring records (most points and most 3-pointers). In his freshman year, he was voted Carolina Player of the Year and ACC Freshman of the Week three times. He had 236 assists, and averaged 12.0 points a game. During his sophomore year, he was a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award and the Naismith Award, and had 213 assists, led the Tar Heels in steals (63) and free throw percentage (81%) while averaging 11.5 points per game.
