Peters close to narrowing his list

Marcus Peters has not yet narrowed his list but the three-star cornerback from Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds said he plans to in the next few weeks before his senior season gets started.
Utah, Washington, Washington State, Oregon, San Diego State, UNLV, Nevada, San Jose State and Sacramento State have all offered Peters, a 6-foot-1, 174-pound prospect who shined at the Palo Alto NIKE Camp and the Gridiron Kings this off-season. He said UCLA is showing interest but the Bruins haven't offered.
"Right now I don't have any favorites that are sticking out in recruiting because no one is sticking out more than the others to me," Peters said.
"I should have some favorites, probably my top five schools, by the time of our first game. That's in a few weeks so that's when I'll narrow it down."
Rated No. 37 at cornerback and No. 64 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, Peters said Utah, Oregon, San Jose State and Sacramento State have recruited him the hardest but he's not prepared to name any favorites yet.
Peters did give an idea of what he's looking for though when he said he'd prefer to play in the Pac-10 and would like to get away from home a little bit.
"I want to stay in the Pac-10," Peters said. "I don't want to be that close to home. That's why Oregon and Utah, since they're going to be in the Pac-10 next year, stand out a little bit at this point."
Peters emerged on the national scene after an outstanding performance at the Palo Alto NIKE Camp and he backed it up again at Gridiron Kings in Florida.
Other than those two major events he didn't do much this summer but his stock has soared and now major programs are involved. Prior to the Palo Alto event, he only had an offer from Sacramento State but things have changed for the better.
"I'm actually happy because before the NIKE camp I only had one offer and that was from Sacramento State," Peters said. "After that and I got defensive MVP everything shot up so it was pretty cool."
