We had a chance to see 2016 quarterback Brent Peus over the Memorial Day weekend at the Steve Clarkson QB Retreat in San Diego. He was a pleasant surprise and a player that has the tools to play at the next level.
"I think if he played at a more well known football school, he would be talked about as one of the better quarterbacks in his class," Clarkson said. "He's a very talented kid with a lot of upside and he's only going to get better."
Peus has a nice frame, a solid 6-2.5, 185 pounds with a live arm and showed good mobility outside of the pocket. He's polished for a young quarterback and with two years to develop, has a chance to emerge as a legitimate college prospect.
"The weekend was a lot of fun, I had a great time," Peus said during the Retreat in San Diego. It was fun to compete with the other top guys here like Brady White and Travis Waller. It gives you an idea where you stand and what you need to improve on.
"I've been working out with Steve since the 7th grade and he has helped me a ton. A lot of it has been my mechanics and footwork. From top to bottom, Steve covers it all and I don't know where I would be without him."
In April, Peus visited Princeton and Pennsylvania and will hit up multiple camps over the summer.
"In June, I'm going to camp with USC and Stanford," Peus said. "I know I'll attend a few others as well but those are the ones locked in. I've gotten some letters from Arizona and Oregon State but I know junior year will be big for me.
"The idea is to go out, have a big season and get my tape out to the schools. Academics are big for me, that will play a big role in my decision. I have a 4.6 GPA right now so school is important. Location doesn't really matter to me, I'll go wherever, just looking for that best fit possible."
