Last week, wide receiver Dewayne Peace backed out of his commitment to Michigan. However, he is already in full swing with the recruiting process trying to find a new home. His quest to find a new home was made easier when two schools journeyed to South Grand Prairie (TX) High School a day after they got word of his de-commitment. Both schools offered Peace the chance to take an official visit and he accepted.
"DP is going to take visits at Arizona and Oklahoma State," said Greg Peace; Dewayne Peace's father. "They were at the school as soon as they found out that DP wasn't going to Michigan anymore."
"That showed their interest and he has four visits left so I told him that he should at least see what those two schools have to offer."
Before Dewayne committed to Michigan back in June, he had a handful of offers however, neither Arizona or OSU had offered at that point. Greg says that might soon change.
"Oklahoma State gave him a verbal offer. When I talked to Coach (Doug) Meachum, he said that Coach (Mike) Gundy said to go ahead and offer DP so that he knew OSU was seriously interested and when he comes back from the national coaching convention he will look at the film and approve him with a written scholarship."
"I understand that it might not come through but, we have ties up there (OSU) and we are fairly certain that they will. They wanted us to know that there is a legitimate interest in DP so that we could start weighing our options."
As for Arizona, Mr. Peace said, "Arizona said that they are going to offer on the trip. They wanted to get him out there to make sure he likes everything and then they'll offer."
Aside from Arizona and OSU, another name has entered the fold of schools pursuing the "Three-Star" wideout.
"TCU has come on lately. We haven't scheduled a visit there but we are definitely interested in them."
With those three schools making a push, Mr. Peace says that they are keeping the door open for a school that they have yet to hear from.
"We have a serous interest in Oklahoma. I have reached out to them to get them some tape and I should hear something back pretty soon. With the de-commitment of Eric Ward, they are looking for receivers and DP had a great camp up there. If Oklahoma offers, there would be serious interest on our part."
Of the schools that offered DP before he committed to Michigan, only Kansas is popping up as a contender. Ironically, Kansas has filled the slots available for the WR position.
