Peterman Enjoying Summer

Springfield, Ill. quarterback prospect Eric Peterman has been busy this summer. The 6-2, 200-pound Peterman has four offers under his belt and is hoping more are on the way. Peterman also attended Notre Dame camp recently, and we spoke with him to get his thoughts on his camp experience and his thoughts on the Irish.

Eric Peterman said he enjoyed his camp experience at Notre Dame. "I liked it, but I had a bad day," Peterman said. "I just had a bad day throwing the football. I was very disappointed in my performance."

His performance hasn't stopped the Irish from recruiting him. "I've e-mailed coach Mattison but he hasn't gotten back to me yet," said Peterman. "I think he's on vacation. He sent me a post card, though. They told me they offered two quarterbacks already and they were going to recruit me as a safety now."

Peterman had mentioned to Irish Eyes earlier that he wanted to play quarterback in college. We asked Eric if Notre Dame's change of position eliminated the Irish. "I might give up playing quarterback to play safety at Notre Dame if they wanted to offer me at safety," Peterman said.

As of now, Peterman has four offers to choose from. "Central Michigan, Air Force, Wisconsin and Indiana have offered me. They've all been recruiting me as a quarterback," said Peterman.

Northwestern is another school on his list. "I went to camp at Northwestern," said Peterman. "I thought I threw the ball well there. They said they are kind of slow in the quarterback process. I don't think they've offered anyone yet."

Does Peterman have any leaders at this point? "I like Notre Dame a lot," he said. "Northwestern, Indiana and Wisconsin are also some of my top schools."

Peterman would like to make a decision soon. "I've talked to my family and we'd like to make an early decision, but that might not happen," Peterman said. "Now I'm kind of thinking that I might take my official visits and decide sometime after my season."

Comments: It appears the Irish are still in good shape with Peterman. He's not 100 percent sold on giving up the chance to play quarterback, however. Still, it's obvious he likes the Irish quite a bit. He's another player to keep an eye on. Top Stories
