Peters Weighs In On Iowa Offer

Brandon Peters attended Iowa's recruiting tailgate on Saturday and is glad that he did. The Class of 2016 quarterback from Indiana picked up an offer. He talked about the Hawkeye chance it what it meant to his process.

Growing up in the Midwest, Brandon Peters was raised on Big Ten football. A school outside of his home state of Indiana became the first conference program to offer him a scholarship, however.

Iowa extended the Class of 2016 quarterback an opportunity on Saturday when he visited for the team's recruiting barbecue.

"It meant a lot knowing that it was my first big ten offer. And after visiting, I realized how cool of a school Iowa is," the 6-foot-4, 190-pound signal caller from Avon High said.

The Hawkeye offer arrived one week after he picked up his first one, which came from Virginia Tech.

"The campus was cool and Iowa City seems like a pretty fun town. The players and coaches made it seem like the game day is a pretty big deal for Iowa and the stadium entrance and atmosphere is something they are known for. Also, all the coaches are straight up and honest with you, which is what you want from a coach," Peters said.

Iowa has distributed six reported offers to '16 quarterbacks. Peters joined Seth Green, Sonny Abrahamson, Bowman Sells, Jake Zembiec and Nate Stanley. None of them have committed.

"(The Hawkeyes) like my athleticism and poise. They run a balanced pro-style offense, which I feel like I would fit good into," Peters said.

Peters is not rushing his decision. He has two seasons of high school football to play.

"It will probably go until somewhere around this time next year," he said of his process. "My recruiting has just picked up a little for me these past two months."

Peters said he would be attending football games at Iowa and Virginia Tech this fall.
