In Week 6 of last season, class of 2015 two-star cornerback Jeremy Peters of Green Cove Springs (Fla.) Clay suffered a season-ending knee injury and had no offers at the time. However, schools were already looking at him and after a solid spring performance he now has nearly double-digit offers.
Of the schools that have offered the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Peters, Marshall, Middle Tennessee and Ohio stand out for him, and once he has film this season showing off a healthy knee he expects to hear more from Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Indiana and UCF.
"I feel way faster, stronger," Peters said. "A lot of colleges came down in spring to see us play. I practiced and participated in non-contact drills and I was moving well."
Peters said he keeps in contact with Indiana every week.
"It's a nice school," he said. "Great program, coaches are awesome. They came down and watched me in the spring and the coach said he wants to get me there and that I'm a top prospect for him."
He recently attended a Georgia Tech camp and left with expectations of an offer.
"They really liked me," he said. "They just want to watch a game or two and they'll offer. They want to see how my knee works."
North Carolina was a school on the verge of offering before the injury.
"They were one of the first recruiters to come to me," he said. "Early in the season, they wanted my transcript. But before the recruiter came down, I got hurt. So they want me to send some tape after one or two games."
UCF is another school he expects to hear from.
"They're close to home," he said. "They have a great program."
As for the schools that have offered, Marshall is a top choice.
"They offered during spring," he said. "They saw how well I was moving and offered. I haven't had the chance to visit yet, but they're a really good, up-and-coming program. They told me I could come in and play."
Middle Tennessee is another offering school that stands out because he knows current Blue Raider, Jared Singletary, a Clay graduate.
"He's a good guy and he talks about (the school to me) all the time," he said. "The coaches up there love me and said I could come up there and get some playing time. I haven't visited yet but I plan to."
Before his injury, Peters had three interceptions and five pass break-ups his junior season.
