Coaches are in line for Peterson
As a junior, DeAngelo Peterson was a standout on both sides of the ball and ended his junior campaign with 43 catches for 789 yards and eight touchdowns on the offensive side, and then moved to the other side and recorded 76 tackles from his safety spot. Peterson (6-2 ½, 190, 4.6) has been busy keeping up with all of the coaches that are after him and it's to a point to where he can't even keep up now. "I picked up an offer from Ole Miss, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Alabama, West Virginia, Arizona, Louisiana Tech and there are some more but I can't think of them all right now," he said. His list of suitors is long and impressive but five in particular have caught his eye. "It's LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama, Tennessee and Auburn," he said. What coaches are recruiting Peterson from the schools in his top five and what does he like about each program? LSU (Larry Porter/Running Backs) – "It's close to home and my people could watch me play. I like watching them on TV and how their receivers play a big role in everything." Ole Miss (Frank Wilson/Running Backs) – "I went down there last summer for a 7-on-7 camp and I liked the school and the atmosphere." Alabama (Nick Saban/Head Coach) – "I really don't know much about them but that they have Nick Saban. I know he's a good coach but that's about it." Tennessee (Trooper Taylor/Wide Receivers) – "I like their offense and they have had some receivers that got drafted high. It's in a great city too." Auburn (Greg Knox/Wide Receivers) – "He said that they are recruiting me as an athlete and that I could play safety too. I want to play offense but I think I could play safety over there too." While Peterson has five schools leading the pack he isn't ready to separate them any more than that. "Not really," he said when asked if he has a leader. "All of them are about even." Desire Street is now out for the summer and Peterson will take a little break then he plans on hitting the road for some unofficial visits. "I'm going to go to Nebraska, Auburn, Alabama, LSU and Ole Miss," he said. "I hope to make it to all of those places."
