Peters commits to MSU
Lamar Peters committed to Mississippi State on Saturday, he told Scout. A recent addition to Scout's top 100, Peters committed to Ben Howland and his staff during an unofficial visit to campus Saturday afternoon. “First off, it’s not that far from home,” Peters told Scout. “I wanted my mom and my family to be able to come to most of the games. I love my families support and just wanted to go MSU.” After a terrific spring with New Orleans Elite, Peters compiled interest from schools like Baylor, Georgia Tech, Illinois, LSU, Wake Forest, Tulane and a host of other schools. Peters said his relationship with MSU assistant Korey McCray played a big role in his commitment. McCray recruited Peters when he was an assistant at LSU and Peters was a freshman in high school. “It was a very big factor, because he’s been calling me every night and we’ve been talking about it,” he said. “We just kept talking about it and talking about the school and I just thought MSU was the best place for me.” Peters also likes Howland’s track record with point guards. “I love him,” he said of Howland. “He’s coached a lot of good point guards. He’s gotten a lot of point guards to the league and I want to be the next one.” Peters won a state championship at New Orleans (La.) Landry-Walker this past season and was named Louisiana’s 4A state player of the year. Peters is currently ranked No. 98 overall as the No. 21 point guard in the 2016 recruiting class. This is the first verbal plege in Mississippi State’s 2016 recruiting class.
