Badger FB Recruiting - CJ Peake visits

The Wisconsin Badgers hosted their first official visitor in the class of 2007 just two weekends ago when Trotwood, Ohio (Madison HS) safety C.J. Peake made his way to Madison to watch the Badgers defeat over San Diego State. The four-star safety, spoke with Josh Clark, who offers this exclusive report to BadgerNation.com.

The Wisconsin Badgers have a priority in the Class of 2007 with four seniors departing the program after this season at the safety position.

The Badgers are being faced with looking for instant impact at safety in the class of 07'. They could certainly help their cause by gaining a pledge of allegiance from C.J. Peake, ranked the sixth best safety in the nation, according to Scout.com.

"The visit was good," Peake informed BadgerNation.com.

"It really opened my eyes to Wisconsin, and they are definitely one of my top schools right now. Coach (Bob) Palcic is recruiting me for Wisconsin, and we've developed a good relationship. He told me they are losing four safeties, and I'll have the chance to play right away."

Peake also highlighted his meeting with Badger strength and conditioning Coach John Dettman.

"Coach Dettman told me how players from other universities have came up to Madison to prepare for the combine. He showed me video of what they were doing wrong, technique-wise, before they arrived and how he helped them fix it. He also ran me through some different stretches to test my flexibility, which I learned from. I was real excited about their strength program after the meeting," Peake stated.

Peake doesn't plan to make a final decision until after the season, but plans to complete two more official visits during his senior season, and two following.

"I'm planning to take an official visit to Michigan State during their game against Ohio State, and I'll make an official visit to West Virginia during the season, too. Those would be my top three schools, right now."

The possibilities for his two visits after the season include Purdue, Iowa, Tennessee, and Ole' Miss, among others.
