"Since that game I have been hearing from every Junior College in Mississippi, ULL, Alcorn State, UT Martin, and those are the ones that have called me personally," he said.
"I haven't checked with my coach to see if any have contacted him."
There is another school that started to also have interest after that game, Southern Miss.
"I did notice that I started hearing from them during and after that game," he said. "I haven't talked with them yet about an offer, but I am looking forward to talking to them. I am very interested."
Pegues said he'll continue to work out over the next few weeks, he'd like to add some weight throughout the spring as he heads for life at the next level.
He doesn't have any offical visits set up yet, but is hoping he can find some schools to visit before signing day rolls around.
