OT Andrus Peat Profile
CUTigers has been in recent contact with Corona Del Sol High School (Tempe, Ariz.) rising junior Andrus Peat for the latest on his recruitment.
"I really have a high interest in Clemson," he said. "They are definitely high on my list right now and I would put them up there with any other school. I really liked all the coaches when I visited Clemson and have built a good relationship with coach Scott. He's not only a great coach, but a great person as well."
Scott made the trek out to west to see the Peat brothers. Andrus' older brother, Todd, is a four-star defensive tackle.
"Coach Scott's visit this summer showed me that they are really dedicated people at Clemson," the younger Peat said. "It meant a lot to me that he traveled that far to see us, especially because it was the first day college coaches could visit recruits.
"It shows me they really have a high interest in me because I was the first recruit coach Scott came out to see, even though I'm only a rising junior."
Scott was returning the favor. The brothers camped at Clemson in the summer of 2009.
"Last summer at Clemson was great," Peat said. "I got a chance to work with some of the best coaches in all of college football as well as experience a true football atmosphere in Clemson. They are really dedicated and live and die football there, which I really like."
He and Scott have been able to speak a few times.
"He has told me that they are really dedicated to me and I am the number one guy they are recruiting right now," Peat said. "Also, they haven't offered many tackles in my class or the class before me so I'll have a chance to compete to play early if I go there."
With over a dozen offers to his name, several stick out. Clemson, Stanford, Arizona, Oregon State, ASU, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Nebraska are among those on the early list. For now, there's no order.
This summer, he's been to Oregon State and Oregon and the Arizona State and Arizona team camps.
"My brother and I are not visiting Clemson this summer, but we are definitely going to get out to see a game during the season," Peat said.
Wherever his older brother decides to sign in 2011 won't make an impact on where Peat looks to head a year later.
"My brother and I don't have to go to the same school but it is definitely possible. It doesn't really matter to me where he goes," he said. "We will each look for the right situation for ourselves individually."
Peat plans to make a decision after his senior season and official visits are taken.
The rising junior was also recently named a U.S. Army All-American and will play in the 2012 All-Star game in San Antonio.
