Kentucky Big Man Chimes In On NU

In Nebraska's quest to fill up the defensive tackle quota for the 2005-2006 recruiting season, the Cornhuskers are turning to prospects identified as some of the nation's best. One of those prospects could be Corey Peters, the big man out of Louisville, Kentucky. Peters discusses his favorite schools, who has been recruiting him the hardest and where Nebraska stands with him.

Corey Peters is a name that's starting to ring throughout the ears of recruiting junkies all over the nation, but only a few schools actually have a legit shot at the big man from Kentucky.  Not only is Corey a legitimate defensive prospect, but many schools see him on the offensive side of the ball as well, if only as a possibility, though one that could pan out well.

In speaking with Peters about the schools that are hitting him the hardest these days, it appears that an undefeated team from this past season is doing the most damage, but it isn't the USC Trojans.  "Probably Auburn, I'm pretty much getting 2-3 letters on a daily basis.  I talked to Coach (Don) Dunn about coming to camp," said Peters.  Peters informed us that his favorite school is Auburn, but that they are closely followed by Michigan, Kentucky, Louisville and Minnesota.

So, where does this leave Nebraska in the Corey Peters sweepstakes?  "They send me letters but, it seems like it stopped for a while," said Peters.  With the flow of letters trickling down to a halt, it appears that the Cornhuskers have backed off of Peters, at least for the moment.

Peters says that he'll probably start narrowing down his official choices as his own football season draws to a close and then make a decision following the completion of his senior year at Central High School.

As far as visits and camps, Peters has two places in mind that he would like to get to.  "I'm supposed to be going to a camp at Auburn, so I'll look around while I'm down there and I'll probably end up going to Michigan before the Summer's over," he said.  Peters mentioned that he has gotten evaluation visits from Louisville, Kentucky, Auburn, Michigan, Marshall, Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Minnesota and Ohio State as well.
