Loganville (GA) Grayson High head coach Mickey Conn knows that he has a special player in linebacker Michael Peek.

"He's just a playmaker," said Conn. "Michael makes a bunch of plays and is a great athlete. He's a 4.5 kid who can run and is strong as well.

"He had over 120 tackles for us and four interceptions. He also had four touchdowns and should have had five but it was called back. The best way to describe Michael is to say he just makes plays."

Peek holds offers from programs such as Navy and Georgia Southern among others, in fact he has already committed to Navy. Programs like NC State, Georgia Tech, and Vanderbilt are involved. In fact, this week NC State came through with an offer and Peek will be visiting the Wolfpack over the weekend.

"Coach Bridge and coach Tenuta officially offered Michael this week," said Conn. "They've been recruiting him. Coach Bridge does a great job in this area, he comes through every year to look at our kids. The thing with Michael was he started here as a sophomore but transferred to a smaller school for his junior year before coming back to Grayson.

"Because of that I think his recruitment was slow. We got some senior film out to schools and NC State was one of them. They came through during the state playoffs and watched him play, and they have been recruiting him ever since."

Peek, who checks in at 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, is being recruited to play outside linebacker by NC State. How did the offer impact his Navy commitment?

"Obviously it's flattering to him," said Conn. "Michael is going to go down there today for an official visit to see what he thinks of the school because he's never been down there. I don't want to speak for him, but I would think after that visit he will be making a final decision."

Peek finished his senior season with 120 tackles, six sacks, 16 tackles for a loss, four interceptions, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and four touchdowns. He led a defense that allowed just 11 points a game and reached the state semifinals.
