On Monday, Colorado landed a commitment from 6-foot-3, 190-pound La Verne (Calif.) Damien shooting guard Bryce Peters.
The 2016 prospect is one of the West Coast’s top scorers in his class and possesses the upside to be a productive player in Boulder.
An athletic wing with a good frame, Peters has made pretty steady progress over the last couple of years. He’s a pretty consistent performer who typically plays hard on both ends of the court.
Peters' best weapon is his pull-up jumper, something he can knock down from both three and midrange, while he's also capable of attacking the basket and finishing above the rim.
Not just a scorer, Peters is also a very capable player on the defensive end, where his quick feet and motor help him stay in front of his defender and pick off errant passes, leading to fastbreaks the other way.
While he sees the court well enough, it's Peters’ attacking mentality and scoring ability that make you like him.
His consistent improvement makes you think he’s working hard on his game and heading in the right direction entering his senior season.
Like most high school shooting guards, Peters will need to work on shot selection and turning the ball over less, but college coaching should have a big impact there.
Peters’ size, athleticism, scoring ability and motor give him the chance to be a player who makes an impact in the Pac-12.
