Peacock picks up SEC offer

Jason Peacock said he's getting a lot of feedback from college coaches and the 6-foot-5, 325-pound offensive tackle from Glendora (Calif.) Citrus C.C. has also picked up his first SEC offer.
Mississippi State recently offered Peacock, a 2008 graduate from Baldwin High in Georgia, and he plans to visit with the Bulldogs the weekend of Dec. 11.
"I've been talking to coach (Dan) Mullen and some other coaches," Peacock said. "They offered me a scholarship and they want me to get down for a visit to see if I like the school.
"That's a wonderful thing playing SEC ball, playing in one of the best conferences in college football. I could go there and love it or I could go there and say it's not a fit for me even though it's in the south. I can't just base it on where it's located. I have to base it on the communications I have with the coach and the players."
Peacock has also set up his official visit for Arizona for Dec. 4 as more top programs continue to get involved in his recruitment. Georgia has increased its interest recently along with Kansas, Arkansas and New Mexico State.
Tennessee, Cal, Kentucky, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, UCLA and USC have been in the mix as well.
Peacock recently took his first official visit to Houston along with Citrus C.C. teammate Addison Bachman and the two had an outstanding time. Both are expected to visit Arizona as well.
The Cougars impressed Peacock, who also has a Portland State offer, and they will certainly stay among his top teams when decision time arrives.
"Houston was great," Peacock said. "The atmosphere was wonderful. It was one of the best experiences I've been apart of so far.
"We got a chance to walk with the team through the crowd. The crowd was all into it. The atmosphere was great, the people were great and the food was great. It was wonderful."
