Peak pulls a shocker

Four-star L.J. Peak pulled a shocker and will head to the Big East.

For all the world it looked like Gaffney (SC) shooting guard L.J. Peak was going to stay home for college. The 6-foot-4 scorer moved back from Chicago to be closer to home as a junior, but that wasn't in the cards for the four-star prospect.

In a press conference at his school, Peak announced his decision to commit to the Georgetown Hoyas. The Hoyas beat out South Carolina and Florida State for services.

This past year Peak had a very strong season at Chicago (Ill) Whitney Young, playing alongside the top prospect in the class of 2014, Jahlil Okafor. However after one season Peak decided that was enough and moved back to Gaffney. Still on the national radar Peak had a very good season, and proved to be one of the top scorers and athletes on the wing.

Now Peak will play in the Big East, and joins a fellow four-stars, Isaac Copeland and Tre Campbell, in a very solid class for the Hoyas. Copeland is a smooth shooting power forward while Peak is an athlete who can really defend and score on the wing.

Peak is the No. 13 shooting guard and the No. 68 player overall in the class of 2014.
