Peters holds five offers
Throughout his high school career, 6-foot-3, 180-pound La Verne (Calif.) Damien 2016 shooting guard Bryce Peters has made steady progress. A strong athlete who always plays hard, Peters is a relentless scorer who can do it from all three levels. His pull-up jumper helps him score from the perimeter and midrange, while he can also use his ball skills and athleticism to get to the basket. Becoming a better defender was one of multiple goals for Peters heading into the season. "I think I’ve improved my defense," he said. "I’ve also improved as a communicator and being a coach on the floor." So far, Arizona State, Wyoming, Pepperdine, UTEP and San Francisco have offered Peters, with interest coming from USC, Utah State and UCSB. Peters listed USC and San Francisco as the two schools recruiting him the hardest. "My former teammate, Jordan McLaughlin, goes there, and I really like their guard play," Peters said of USC. "They play a fast paced game and their freshmen are pretty good." Finding the right fit as a player will be a key for Peters. "Location isn’t a big deal, but defense is important because offense wins regular games but defense wins championships," he said.
