Peters Feeling the Love

Jamal Peters can pretty much have his choice when it comes to where he wants to play college football. Peters holds offers from all over the country including just about every school in the Southeastern Conference. Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Mississippi State and Ole Miss make up Peters latest top five, but the pace of his recruitment appears to be picking up.

Earlier today, Jamal Peters was selected to the Clarion Ledger's Dandy Dozen, a list of the state of Mississippi's top high school football players.

While Peters' inclusion as one of the Magnolia State's brightest stars comes as no surprise, there was still a bit of relief when the announcement came.

"It's such an honor to be in the Dandy Dozen," said Peters. "I have wanted to be a Dandy Dozen my whole life.

"I was talking with my coach about everything and this is a big honor for Bassfield and for the football program.

"This is such a big honor for me and my family.

"I am really proud about all of this."

Peters will be taking his show on the road this weekend as he makes a return trip to Starkville to take part in Mississippi State's Big Dawg camp.

"I am looking forward to getting back up there, because it's been a while," said Peters. "My mama is coming with me and she is looking forward to the visit.

"I am excited about it and I am looking forward to the camp."

The four star safety reports that the Bulldogs' recruiting efforts are being aided by several of the state's top players.

"I talk with a lot of the Mississippi State commitments and they all want me to come up there and play with them," said Peters. "I have never had anybody treat me like that and it's an honor that a lot of the top players want me to come and play with them.

"I wouldn't mind playing with any of those guys.

"I know a lot of them are going to be in the Dandy Dozen too.

"I want to go somewhere that really wants me and it helps that these other guys in the Dandy Dozen want to play with me."

Peters has never set a firm time frame for a decision, but he reports that there is a possibility he reaches a decision in the near future.

"I have been going slow and just taking my time with everything," said Peters. "It's probably going to happen pretty soon though."
