"We are doing good," Peko said. "We are 4-2 right now and in the middle of our conference games. I am playing three technique or outside defensive end as a seven technique. I don't know what my stats are though."
Peko has already taken one official visit, but he doesn't have any other visits set up at the moment. That may soon change because he's eyeing a second trip for the first weekend in December to a second Big Ten school.
"I haven't set up any other visits yet. I am talking about setting up a visit to Nebraska. That would be for after the season though. We were talking about that visit being on December 1st."
Nebraska is a team that Peko is very serious about. He said that the Nebraska staff was at his school last week, while they were on their bye, to take a closer look at him. Peko said that he couldn't talk to the Nebraska coach, but it meant a lot to him that they would stop by and see him.
"Coach Rick Kaczenski was here last week from Nebraska. I wasn't able to really talk to him because of the recruiting rules, but he was here to talk to my coaches on Thursday. It meant a lot to me that he stopped by. It shows that they are serious about me."
As a freshman Peko said that he tallied 39 tackles, eight tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and 13 quarterback hurries. Peko says that he will be eligible to graduate in December and enroll at a school for the spring semester with three years of eligibility to play two.
