Point Guard Eyes Iowa

Caught up with DeMatha point guard Jeff Peterson as he returns from his visit to Iowa; he's stuck at Chicago O'Hare waiting for his delayed flight to Washington. And I wouldn't be surprised if Peterson, who hopes to make a decision before the Stags play in the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament beginning March 15, ends up a Hawkeye.

"It went very well," Peterson said of his visit to Iowa City. "I enjoyed myself a lot. The people were very nice, not just the coaches and players, but the administrative staff that I met. And I enjoyed being with the guys."

Peterson had committed to Princeton in the fall but is reconsidering. Xavier and St. Louis are also recruiting him.

"I told [Iowa] I'm going to talk to my father and my mom but most likely I'll make a decision very soon," Peterson said. "I'm going to go over everything with my parents. I did like Iowa a lot. There's a chance."

Jeff Peterson should go to Princeton for the following reasons: 1) He will be a starter and key player right away; 2) He will get a Princeton education that will last him a lifetime. Peterson will be a very good college basketball player but will probably not be a pro player. With a Princeton degree he can do whatever he wants in life and still play basketball. Even if he turns out to be a basketball phenom he can still get drafted after four years at Princeton - e.g. - Bill Bradley, Geoff Petrie, Brian Taylor and Armond Hill come to mind.
