"The vibe there is family and they work hard," Pegues said of the Toppers. "When I saw them in practice it was amazing how hard they worked and they can win championships every year. They recruited me really hard and now I have it off my mind so I can have a great senior year."
Western's third-year Coach Darrin Horn was excited about the addition of Pegues. "I think the two big things are that he's a 6-foot-9 high level athlete with versatility," Horn said. "We think that with him we've locked up the two best players in Kentucky and we want to be good in our own backyard."
