Peake expecting big things

Scout.com's No. 11 wide receiver in the class of 2011 will be in Clemson this weekend for Junior Day. Will he be the next in-state prospect to join the four already committed to the Tigers?

CUTigers recently caught up with Dorman High School (Roebuck) wide receiver Charone Peake recently to talk about this weekend's visit to Tigertown.

The Scout.com four-star was last in town for the basketball game against Duke.

"I just want to continue to build a relationship with the coaching staff, like I already have," Peake said.

The long-time Clemson lean continues to rank the Tigers atop his list along with a pair of SEC East powers. Georgia was scheduled to host Peake for Junior Day, but snow and winter weather kept him from making the trip to Athens. Along with Clemson and Georgia, Florida ranks among his favorites.

"I know Georgia and Florida are both good places to be. I like all their coaches," he said.

Clemson recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott is Peake's main recruiter. The two sat beside one another for most of the Clemson/Duke basketball game in January when Peake was last in town. They last spoke on Tuesday.

"I talked to him about the Junior Day and how basketball is going," Peake said.

CUTigers asked, is it possible that you'd commit this weekend?

"I'm not committing anytime soon," Peake said.

How long do you want to take to make your decision?

"I don't know yet. Whenever I feel like I know where I want to go."

Recently, Peake's added a few new offers to his list that already includes LSU, Maryland, North Carolina and South Carolina. Notre Dame and Michigan have recently offered and Oklahoma sent one his way on Monday.

He would mind taking trips to those new suitors, but hasn't made plans to do so. This summer, Peake's planned to attend only one camp.

"I know I'll be at the Clemson camp, but I don't know what I'm going to do yet for the others," he said.
