Peterman Still Orange

After spending a year at Georgia Military College, Dale Peterman has moved to California and will spend his sophomore season at City College of San Francisco. We hadn't been able to reach him for a while, but it was worth the wait as he confirmed on Tuesday that he is verbally committed to the Orange.

Dale Peterman is a prospect that still remains on the minds of many Syracuse fans and SyracuseFan.com confirmed today that the 5-foot-11, 172-pound cornerback will sign his letter of intent to play for the Orange in February.

"I'm still going to Syracuse, that's the plan," Peterman stated. "I talked to Coach (Scott) Shafer a couple of days ago just to keep in touch and he knows that I still plan on signing my letter of intent in February. I'll be coming in as a true junior and he said that if I come in and take care of business like I should I'll come in right off the bat and play."

"I talk to Coach Shafer every few weeks to let him know how everything is going, but I haven't talked to Coach (Doug) Marrone in a minute," Peterman added. "He's a stand-up guy and I like the type of person he is. He stresses excellence and wants the most out of his players which I like and I just need to straighten up my grades so I can get out there and be a part of things. I'm taking some summer school classes out here right now so I can be eligible to play this fall and I'll have my associate's degree by the time I get to Syracuse."

"I won't be taking any visits or anything like that. I'm committed to Syracuse and that's it."

As a freshman at Georgia Military College, Peterman made 33 tackles, three tackles for loss, registered one sack and had a team-leading five interceptions which he returned for 85 yards and a touchdown.
