Not Totally Over?

C.J. Peake has been committed to Wisconsin for nearly a month and during that time there's been a lot of speculation regarding his commitment. Many people thought the Ohio safety was changing his mind and was going to decommit to Michigan State, after visiting the Spartans in early Dec. Now Peake says he has no interest in Michigan State, but that Louisville is still has a slim chance.

Three-star safety C.J. Peake (6-2, 208, 4.5), from Trotwood-Madison High in Trotwood (Ohio), says he's still committed to Wisconsin, but states that Louisville still has an outside shot.

"I'd say there's a 90 percent chance I'll sign with Wisconsin," Peake said. "There's still a small chance for Louisville though. That's really the only other school I'm still considering."

Peake created a storm of speculation about the firmness of his commitment to Wisconsin last month when he visited Michigan State (Dec. 8). "I already had the official visit scheduled and wanted to go there to be sure that Wisconsin is where I wanted to be. I liked Michigan State, but I'm not looking at them anymore."

He visited the Badgers back on Sept. 9 and says he's been high on them for a long time. "I really like the players there and they are losing four safeties, so I like my chances of playing early. Also, they are in the Big-10 and that's one of the best conferences in the country. They are one of the top teams and had an amazing season."

So what is it about the Cardinals that's keeping Louisville in the game. "They are close to home," Peake said. "They are only about two hours away and that helps. It's just a small thing though. They have a really great thing going there. I love the whole team attitude and it's a really nice football environment. I was probably more impressed by them then I thought I would be."

Peake says he plans to discuss everything with his mom and hopes to have his mind 100 percent made up soon. "I want to be 100 percent sure," Peake said. "I think I'll know for sure this week. I don't want to drag it out more."

He finished his senior season with around 60 tackles. His team was 7-4.

Peake reports a 2.5 core GPA and a 16 ACT, but says he still hasn't gotten the results from his Dec. retake. Recommended Stories
