Peters Moving Toward Decision

Four-star point guard Roddy Peters is coming off of a visit to Rutgers and next on the docket is a trip out West to UCLA.

Four-star point guard Roddy Peters is becoming one of the most sought after players in the entire country. With a limited number of point guards still on the board, Peters has become a must get for several schools.

The most recent visit taken by Peters was to Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights have been recruiting Peters for a while, and they showed well for themselves on the official visit.

"It was cool up there," said Peters of Rutgers. "I liked it up there and got to hang out with the players and watch them workout. It was real nice."

The connection to Rutgers for Peters is through former DC Assault coach and current assistant David Cox.

"I didn't know him when he was coaching for Assault," said Peters. "I do know that he is a good coach and he is a really good guy. We talk a lot."

Up next for Peters is a visit across the country.

"I have a visit to UCLA on October 6," said Peters.

When it comes to the Bruins, Peters likes a lot of what they have to offer.

"I am looking forward to seeing the campus life there," said Peters. "I like them because of their style of play and I have a good relationship with the coaches. I want to see how things are with them and the players when I go out there."

One school that gets linked quite a bit to Peters is Maryland. He grew up near the campus and says he has a good relationship with everyone at the school.

"It is pretty good with Maryland," said Peters. "They are right there even with all of the schools. They are just telling me how if I go there I will play a lot and everything. Most of all they talk to me about the position and how I will play and being a point guard and everything."

Also Peters made an official visit to Xavier and came away impressed with what he saw.

"I really like the coaches at Xavier," said Peters. "Also they have a good style of play and they do good in their conference and make it to the NCAA Tournament every year."

Originally Kansas wasn't on Peters' list, but the Jayhawks recently picked things up in his recruitment, and now they are a factor.

"I know a lot about them because of their history and how good they are every year," he explained. "I am still interested in them. They are a nice school and a school I will consider."

When it comes to making a decision, it shouldn't be too long before the No. 54 prospect in the country makes that call.

"I will probably go about another month and then make my decision," said Peters. "That is my plan right now."
