Jason Peacock has three offers and lots of interest and now the Glendora (Calif.) Citrus C.C. offensive tackle is setting up some visits and figuring out which schools are serious in his recruitment.
Arizona, Houston and Portland State have offered Peacock, a 6-foot-5, 325-pound prospect who plans to visit Houston the weekend of Sept. 10 when it hosts UTEP and then a trip to Arizona is scheduled for sometime in December.
Georgia, Tennessee, New Mexico, Kansas State, UCLA and Auburn are also showing interest but because the Cougars and Wildcats offered first Peacock said those are his two favorites at this point. Peacock will visit Houston next weekend with Citrus teammate Addison Bachman, who also has an Arizona offer.
"I'm going to play at least the first two, first three games and if I feel like I'm having a pretty good season then we'll see," Peacock said.
"Arizona and Houston are pretty much at the top right now because they see my potential and they said they don't need anything more because they know what I can do. They see something they can use and they can better me. They're at the top right now.
"If Georgia and Tennessee come into play, that's the SEC. That would be a great opportunity to play there, too."
Peacock, a 2008 graduate from Baldwin High in Georgia, and Bachman also recently took an unofficial visit to USC and there is high interest in the Trojans. Whether USC offers either junior college prospect is yet to be seen but Peacock liked what he saw from coach Lane Kiffin and his staff.
"It's going to be important to meet the coaches face-to-face and check out the schools and check out the people they have on the team," Peacock said.
"I'm big on a family-oriented team. That's a team that wins games. Look at USC. In the past they've been winning games because they're a family-oriented team. I went out there and watched practice and I got a vibe of that. I really liked it."
