Maryland Zeroing In On Recruitment Of Roddy Peters
Roddy Peters has seemingly become Maryland’s top priority for the 2013 class.
The 6-foot-4 point guard from District Heights (Md.) took an official visit to College Park earlier this week.
“It went really good. I liked it,” said Peters, whose rapid summer ascent landed him as a consensus top-50 recruit. "They took me around to see everything, I got to see the dorms, talked to a couple of the players (Nick Faust and Pe’Shon Howard), met the trainers … They just said that they really want me at Maryland. That’s what (my mom) liked. Coach (Mark) Turgeon told me he really wanted me. She likes them.
“He told me how I can come in and be a point guard, how he thinks I fit the style,” he continued. “Of course, they were all saying that I should commit, but I still want to weigh my options.”
Peters is also considering Georgetown, Xavier, UCLA, Memphis and Rutgers.
“At first everyone thought I would commit [when Maryland offered], but I have all types of schools now. It’s really all about where I’m most comfortable,” he said. “I’ve got some thinking to do. I think I’ll commit during basketball season.”
