Dorman wide receiver Charone Peake made his second stop along the spring practice circuit in Clemson.

The Scout.com No. 10 rated wide receiver and four-star prospect shared his thoughts on the Tigers' scrimmage with CUTigers Saturday evening.

"The defense looked pretty strong. Xavier (Dye) made a lot of good catches to keep the throwing game running," Peake said.

Before the start of the scrimmage head coach Dabo Swinney was sure to make his way over to Peake for a quick conversation.

"He was just joking around with me. Every time I visit he jokes around with me. He told me to watch Tajh (Boyd)," Peake said.

Afterwards, he ate lunch with wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott before heading over to Vickery Hall and through some dormitories.

Peake was in Athens for Georgia's spring practice last week and has yet to set any other visits in the upcoming weeks. He might head back to Clemson for the spring game April 10.

Heading into the summer, Peake would like to see Clemson, Georgia and Florida again. He's also looking to visit USC and North Carolina.

With a couple of new players making a push in Peake's recruitment, he shared his thoughts on the two schools that join the Tigers, Bulldogs and Gators.

USC: They have a good quarterback every year, it seems. They have a really good offense.

North Carolina: I'm interested because of the interest they have in me. They've been coming at me pretty hard lately, sending me a lot of notes.

All five of the schools are in Peake's top five.

"They're in no particular order," he said.

As a junior at Dorman, Peake had 57 receptions for 870 yards and nine touchdowns.
