No. 14 Covington is on a roll after getting past Mandeville last week. LB Otha Peters, a Tennessee…
Peters is Solid to Tennessee
"I decided to take my official visit following the season so I can spend more time with the Tennessee coaches," said Otha Peters. "My mom and I decided to go after the season. The coaches won't be as busy then preparing for their games and coaching the team. I'm solid to Tennessee. I'm very impressed with their season. They've been losing some games, but the defense has played well. "They gotten worn down by teams like LSU and Alabama that have more depth. Injuries have also taken a toll on Tennessee." Peters says he's in frequent contact with freshmen linebackers A.J. Johnson and Curt Maggitt, and that he's looking forward to playing with them in future years. While the Louisiana tackling-machine (121 stops through nine games) is firm with his commitment, he's also planning to take official visits to other schools. "I'm going to visit Arkansas, Nebraska, and maybe TCU or Texas A&M. TCU's coach says I do have an offer, but they want to wait and offer when they see me in person. They don't want to do it over the phone," he said. "I'm not going on those visits until after my season, though. "This week, we have (8-1) Mandeville. They're one of our big three rivals along with St. Paul's and Fontainebleau. We need to not give up big plays and be good in our passing game. If we beat Mandeville, we'll have a home playoff game (in two weeks). It's a big thing for us to have a home game, because we play better at home and will get more support." Covington is 6-3 on the year.
