Jayhawks Offer Peat

As one of the top defensive tackle prospects in the country, Todd Peat has seen his list of Division One scholarship offers swell significantly in recent weeks.

Tuesday he added his eleventh to the list, when the Kansas Jayhawks extended a formal offer to the Tempe (AZ) Corona Del Sol High School product.

"That was actually today," Peat said Monday. "We actually talked about a week and a half ago and they said they just had to put the film through Coach (Turner) Gill, and then get the offer out."

Peat also owns offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, Stanford, Wake Forest and Washington, as well as a handful of other schools.

Scout.com's Jason Jewell, Southwest Recruiting Analyst, described Peat as a "big, strong, stout player" with the versatility to play multiple positions along the line on both sides of the ball.

"(He's) a very productive, very disruptive defensive tackle prospect in Scout.com's Top 150," Jewell said. "He stands about 6-foot-3, 285 pounds, so he's very strong. Played some defensive end in the '30' front this year a little bit, too, but is probably going to project as a defensive tackle in a 4-3 scheme."

Though the majority of his offers come from schools along the West Coast at this point, Peat said he was more interested in finding the right fit than anything else.

"I'm just really looking for the best situation for myself, where I can go in and start for four years and be able to be the best player I can be, to give myself the best chance to go to the NFL," he said. "Wherever that might be is the best school."

"I want to  to get to know as much about every school as I can," he added.

Peat's father – Todd Peat, Sr. – played professionally for both the St. Louis (later Phoenix) Cardinals and Los Angeles Raiders, from 1987 to 1983. His younger brother Andrus, a 2012 prospect, has also holds a number of D1 scholarship offers.
