California offensive lineman Bryan Peters made the long trek from his home state to North Carolina so he could check out a few of the schools showing interest in him.
Though Peters has not received offers from NC State, North Carolina and Duke as of yet, the 6-5, 305-pound offensive tackle from La Mirada decided that he, along with friend and teammate Isaac Luatua, would visit the schools.
The trip served as a good opportunity to see another part of the country, but the visits were also very informative.
"We visited Duke and NC State, and we were there for North Carolina's spring game and a junior day," Peters said.
Peters said he enjoyed the time he spent at all three schools and had plenty of positive things to say about NC State in particular.
"That was nice," he said of what the Pack showed him. "They took us everywhere ... around campus and all of that. We met coach O'Brien and the offensive line coach.
"I can tell the NC State coaches were kind of hard nosed. I liked that. That's how I'm coached. If you're doing something wrong they're going to get after you."
Peters said the NC State coaches are still evaluating him and have not decided whether they will offer. He also had some good things to say about rival North Carolina.
"That was awesome, too. They took us in well. The spring game was awesome. It was only a spring game but those guys were so fired up. North Carolina's facilities were unbelievable, too. It looks like in a few years they'll be building an add-on to the stadium, which should be cool. They've already offered 15 or 16 offensive linemen already, so they're going to wait until June to see where those guys stand.
"It would be a dream come true to play in the ACC for any of those schools. They seem like great places.
Florida State is the only school from a BCS conference that has offered Peters, but the list of mid-majors that have offered him is long.
"It's wide open right now," he said. "I don't have any favorites. Location isn't going to be a factor."
