Remington Peck Commits to BYU

Remington Peck from Bingham High School called up Cougar coaches Friday night to commit to sign a letter of intent with BYU this coming February. Peck said he felt it was the right decision and is very confident about it, as he'll sign and then play for the school he's always dreamed of playing for.

"I love BYU and I'm just so happy to have the opportunity to play in such a great program," said Remington Peck. "When they offered I was pretty sure I'd commit to BYU, but I just needed to take a little time and consider everything, but when I did it just felt right."

Peck is a 6-foot-5-inch, 220-pound athlete who could play any of four positions while at BYU. So which position will Peck play?

"Probably either outside linebacker or tight end," said Peck. "Those are the positions I feel most comfortable at right now, but I could play d-line or maybe even offensive line. We'll see how it goes and where I fit in best."

Peck's overall athleticism and versatility was on display for coaches during Junior Day. He received his offer following the one-day workout earlier this month. When Peck received his offer from BYU, it was the proverbial "dream come true" for the Bingham prep star.

"It really was a dream come true for me," confirmed Peck. "BYU is the perfect place for me and where I've always wanted to play ever since I can remember."

What led Peck to his ultimate decision were factors beyond the gridiron.

"I like that I'll be in an LDS culture," said Peck. "BYU's environment is a great environment for me as a person and I'll also have a lot of friends and former teammates down there, so it should be a lot of fun."

Peck's scholarship will be earned and maintained by playing football for Mendenhall's program, which is something Peck is very grateful for. Having met with the team and through attending practice sessions, Peck has become very impressed with what he's seen down in Provo.

"The players on the team are very close to one another," noted Peck. "They work well together and they do a lot of stuff around the community, and I really like and respect that. The practices are very good and you can tell that Coach Mendenhall coaches just as he talks. He's straightforward and doesn't mess around. I like that about him."

Peck does not have mission plans at the current time and will join the team after signing a letter of intent this coming February. In the next year, Peck will continue his development before taking on any of the four positions being looked at as possibilities for the versatile athlete.

"I don't really have a preference right now," said Peck regarding which position he'll play. "I'm just very excited to be part of BYU's program. It's a program that has everything I could ever ask for and I know that the coaches down there will have me play where I'll do best and where I'll help the team out the most. I'm just happy and very grateful to have the opportunity that I do."
