Kicker Has Favorite

Clearwater (Fla.) Countryside kicker Jon Peattie has received quite a bit of interest this recruiting year, but his favorite team is clear.
"I really love Miami,” the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder said. “Their kicker is a senior next year and they are going to need a kicker. Plus, I want to go away from home but not too far."
However, Peattie hasn’t eliminated other teams. While he’s going to visit Miami on either Jan. 11 or Jan. 18, he will also take a trip to Northwestern on Jan. 25. He’s already visited Central Florida and South Florida as well.
“I'm not sure I could handle kicking in the cold weather at Northwestern but I’m going to visit anyhow,” he said. “Florida schools have always been my favorite, growing up here in Florida and all."
Peattie is still waiting for his first scholarship offer.
"I hope to decide by the end of January, definitely before February signing day," he explained. “Miami is recruiting me to kick, however I can do both. I averaged about 40 yards per punt this year."
