On Sunday, the Dorman (Roebuck) senior spoke to CUTigers about his trip to Tigertown.

"I had fun. I like how much of a family Clemson is," Peake said.

He and fellow wide receiver commit Sammy Watkins were able to spend time with one another again this weekend. The two were in San Antonio, Tex. earlier this month for the US Army All-American Bowl.

"We talked more at the US Army game," Peake said, "But we still talked this weekend. We're pretty good friends."

Last Wednesday, new offensive coordinator Chad Morris was in Roebuck. It was the first-time he and Peake were able to meet face to face.

"I like him a lot. I feel like he's going to bring great things to the offense," Peake said. "I know he is. I've watched Tulsa play. I'm very excited about it."

On Sunday, he and head coach Dabo Swinney met.

"It was good. He let me know that I come in and work, do what I'm supposed to do, I could have a good chance at playing time this year," Peake said.

He enjoyed spending time with a few members of his signing class and the future teammates that are already at Clemson.

"I liked being around those guys. I feel close to them. I'm excited about playing with them next year," Peake said.
