One Virginia prospect acquired his first offer yesterday. Who pulled the trigger on the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder and are other schools close to following suit?
"I got my first offer from Marshall," Dublin (Va.) Pulaski County linebacker Tahrick Peak said. "They offered me yesterday.
"That is my first offer that's happened so far. I feel pretty good about it. I don't know too much about Marshall. I know about the crash a long time ago and how they've built the team back up to a good program. I've heard about the campus and how it's good and the facilities are nice. I haven't been up, but I definitely plan to go up there and check out everything."
Meanwhile, North Carolina is showing more interest.
"I am considering a visit up there on March 28th for a junior day," he stated. "I want to go up there and see their facilities."
Other visits may be coming down the line as Peak is looking at visiting Virginia in late May or early June as well as Virginia Tech for camp on June 6th.
With interest rising, Peak discussed what he is looking for in a college.
"I really want a good education, a top-notch school. I want to be an engineer," he stated. "I'm going to go to college for a good engineering program. I want to major sure it's good and that I'm being taught by the best.
"Also, I want a good football program. Location is big. I don't want to go too far off. I want to be close to family and friends, so I'll have more emotional support."
