2018 Santa Margarita (Ca.) Catholic TE Jake Peters talks about his first offer and some summer plans

On Thursday, Washington became the first school to offer 2018 Santa Margarita (Ca.) Catholic TE Jake Peters and he updated Dawgman.com on what this first offer means as well as some plans for the summer...


"Coach (Jordan) Paopao and coach 'K' (Pete Kwiatkowski) stopped by our school yesterday and they watched our practice," Peters said. "I guess they liked what they saw because when I called them later that night they said that I had the offer.

"(Paopao) said I fit their offense well."

Washington is the first school to offer Peters and he said it meant a lot to him.

"I honestly was speechless," Peters recalled. "It's a huge honor."

A little over a month ago, Peters visited Montlake and he said he's hoping to come back during the fall.

"I'm going to go to their Huntington Beach satellite camp this summer and I'm going to try and come up during our bye week for a game this season," Peters said. 

As far as making a decision, Peters said while the Washington offer was exciting, he's not even thinking about making an early decision.

"I'm only a sophomore," Peters said. "I'm not even thinking about that really. I've got plenty of time.

"I will say though, Washington is definitely a school I could see myself at."

In addition to his offer from the Dawgs, Peters said he's also heard from coaches from Colorado, Utah, Utah State, USC, Washington State and Nebraska although the contact has been limited since he's still only a sophomore.

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

"It's definitely what held me back," Peters said back in April. "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."

We'll have more on Peters in the coming weeks and months as he continues his way through the recruiting process and we will update news on him as it happens.
