Pitt, WVU Offer Local Juniors
Colleague Paul Tenorio has today's news:
Broad Run junior running back T.J. Peeler picked up his first scholarship offer from the University of Pittsburgh after attending Pitt's Junior Day.
Peeler, a 6-foot, 175-pound versatile back, rushed for 1,145 yards and scored 18 touchdowns despite playing in just 11 games -- he missed three due to a small bone chip in his elbow -- helped lead the Spartans to a perfect 14-0 season and the Virginia AA Division 4 state championship, the school's first ever football title. Under the radar until the Spartans started to make their playoff push, Peeler has also drawn interest from Maryland and several other D-I programs.
"The coaches were all nice and I just felt really comfortable there," Peeler said. "They were showing me around the whole city, the school, facilities, everything was nice. I talked to Coach Dave Wannstedt and he was telling me he was really interested in me and liked my tape and I don't know, I just felt really comfortable."
Loudoun County linebacker-tight end Chase Williams, picked up his second scholarship offer Thursday from West Virginia University, according to his brother Blake Williams.
Williams, son of former Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, already had an offer from New Mexico State and has also drawn major interest from Maryland and Virginia Tech. Williams will also visit South Carolina this weekend, and the 6-foot-2, 235-pound athlete has drawn interest from several of the nation's top programs, including Florida and Southern Cal, and Tennessee, LSU and Alabama have recently also picked up their recruiting recently.
