Marcus Peters has worked diligently to trim his list from seven to five schools and the three-star cornerback from Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds should have his favorites ready to go by the end of next week when his team starts its season.
"I'm still in the process of doing that," Peters said. "I'm going to have that done next week."
Nevada, Oregon, Sacramento State, San Diego State, San Jose State, UNLV, Utah, Washington and Washington State have all offered Peters, who emerged on the national scene after solid performances at the Palo Alto NIKE Camp and the Gridiron Kings event this summer.
Peters, a 6-foot-1, 174-pound prospect, has decided not to give much indication on which way he plans to trim his list, only to say that he's going to have it to five by McClymonds' first game and that he wants to take official visits. McClymonds opens its season against Ferndale, Calif., on Sept. 3.
"I'm going to look at who I've been speaking with the most and I just want to see about some other stuff, too," Peters said. "I'm at seven right now and I'm trying to get it to a top five before the season starts.
"I'm not really sure about where I'm going to take my official visits yet but that's what I'm working on right now."
Although Peters, rated No. 27 at cornerback and No. 64 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, hasn't hinted at which schools will make his cut there's a good chance Oregon and Utah are safe.
Peters said in a recent interview with Rivals.com that he's particularly interested in those programs for two reasons: He would prefer to play in the Pac-10 and move away from home to play college football. The Ducks and Utes offer him that possibility and he has talked highly of both teams in the past.
