Recruiting has picked up for La Mirada, Calif., offensive tackle Bryan Peters and things could get much better in the coming months since so many new programs are getting involved with the 6-foot-5, 305-pound prospect.
Colorado State, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico and Wyoming have offered Peters, who said Hawaii and Wyoming are his early favorites but won't jump at making a decision because higher-profile programs are showing lots of interest.
"Probably my top two right now are Hawaii and Wyoming," Peters said. "The location for Hawaii stands out. I kind of want to take a visit out there and Wyoming is a good program. They've done nothing but improve over the past couple years."
UCLA has gotten more involved and Peters plans to camp with the Bruins this summer. He said he's been told that if things go well an offer could come and that could be huge for Peters, who said he really likes coach Rick Neuheisel, offensive line coach Bob Palcic and the situation in Westwood.
"I'm going to go to their linemen camp in June and coach Neuheisel said if I do well at that then there's a pretty good chance they'd offer," Peters said. "It's very motivating. That's right about the time spring football is over so I'll be sure to be working hard.
"I really like the atmosphere there. We visited there a couple weeks ago for an unofficial visit and they took us around the facilities and those were incredible. I like coach Neuheisel, too, he's a great guy. I'm going to give 100 percent especially at that camp just to impress them."
This weekend, Peters and La Mirada teammate Isaac Luatua, who lists offers from Boston College, Colorado State, New Mexico, UCLA and Wyoming, will visit North Carolina, Duke and NC State and attend the Tar Heels' spring game.
Peters, who said he wants to camp at UCLA and Notre Dame for sure this summer, said those three ACC programs have shown more interest recently along with Northwestern, Kansas, Iowa State and Colorado. It's a thrilling time for Peters, who hopes more offers are on the way.
"It's really exciting," Peters said. "I'm still waiting for a couple more but it's really exciting. It seems like when I got the Nevada offer there wasn't one for a while after that.
"There was a gap for about three or four weeks where I didn't get one. Then I got Hawaii and they're getting closer and closer together."
