Santa Margarita (Ca.) Catholic TE Jake Peters is taking a tour of schools that have shown him some early interest

Several prospects were on the sidelines for Washington's first spring practice and one was 2018 Santa Margarita (Ca.) Catholic TE Jake Peters...

"I loved it," Peters said of his visit to Montlake. "It had everything I'm looking for from athletics to academics and I loved the city of Seattle."

While he was on campus, Peters had the chance to watch Washington's first spring practice and he also got the chance to talk with the Husky coaches.

"The practice was well organized and there was lots of energy," Peters noted. "The coaching staff and players I met were amazing. Coach (Chris) Peterson is a really good guy with a life plan for his players and I could really tell he cared about them.

"The connection I felt between the tight ends coach (Jordan Paopao) also really stood out to me."

No schools have offered the 6'5", 220-pounder at this point, but he has been talking with plenty of schools and he's visiting several of them over the next few weeks.

"Washington, Michigan, Northwestern and Arizona are all talking to me right now," Peters said. "Last spring I visited Arizona and Arizona State and now that my visit to Washington is over, I'm heading down to see Oregon and Oregon State."

A big reason why Peters has yet to grab any offers is because he missed most of his sophomore season while recovering from Mono.

"It's definitely what held me back," Peters said. "I didn't finally get over it until midway through basketball season, so a lot of schools haven't really gotten to see me yet."

To rectify that, Peters will take part in several camps this summer in the hopes of getting on some schools' radars.

"I'm definitely going to camps with Washington, Michigan, Oregon, BYU, Arizona and Northwestern and Stanford has been talking to me too so I might head up to their as well," Peters said. "Most of the camps I'm going to hit are satellites so I can hit a lot of them without having to travel too much."

We'll have more from Peters in the coming weeks as he gets ready to hit the camp circuit.
