Andrus Peat is coming toward a decision on National Signing Day, and the Corona del Sol offensive tackle will have some tough choices to make. Does he have potential favorites that stand out over everyone else?
One potential favorite (perhaps the biggest favorite among them all) is the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who will give Peat the chance to play with his brother Todd (a year older and a Nebraska enrollee from last season) in college. Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports projects Peat to Nebraska.
The 6-foot-7, 300-pound Arizona native, who also is a pretty good basketball player, sparked quite a turnout in the crowd for one of his hoops games last week. In the stands: Lane Kiffin and a few USC coaches, the entire Nebraska offensive staff and a few Stanford staffers. His older brother Todd Peat signed with the Huskers last year, and given NU's tradition with O-linemen, it's no stretch to think that the No. 8 overall prospect in MaxPreps Top 100 could be headed to Lincoln.
Peat could also end up at Stanford. Peat recently tweeted the following.
Just got admitted to Stanford.. still haven't decided on a school yet tho— Andrus Peat (@AndrusPeat1) January 22, 2012
Stanford is putting together a monstrous offensive line, which would suggest the Cardinal have the edge in that regard. But there could be a lot of challeneges for Peat to try and start immediately, which could make him lean another way.
Peat is also considering Florida State and USC among his top 4, but he cancelled his most recent FSU visit, which would seemingly make them a dark horse in this race.
