With a bit of downtime Saturday, Suitland guard Roddy Peters decided to make a call.
“I called Dalonte [Hill] to ask what they were doing this weekend,” he said. “They want me to commit. They don’t want me to go anywhere else.”
Things haven’t changed much recently for Peters, a 6-foot-4 point guard who’s become a top priority for Mark Turgeon following a stellar summer. He still plans to commit in early November and take officials to at least two schools, Rutgers later this month and UCLA in October.
He’s not sure if he’ll need to take officials to local schools Maryland and Georgetown because they’re close enough to home that he can visit either at any time. He has done so frequently in Maryland’s case.
“I’ll probably be back for Midnight Madness,” he said.
Peters, who’s focused on rehabbing a shoulder injury he suffered last this summer, continues to hear from Maryland, Georgetown, UCLA, Memphis, Rutgers and Xavier.
“All of them are calling about the same. No one calls more than the others. They all call all the time,” he said.
Maryland, of course, continues to recruit three other guards: Philly point Rysheed Jordan and Houston twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison. But Peters has maintained all along he’s not delaying his decision to see how their respective recruitments shake out.
“I see people committing and things like that, but I’m not really paying attention to anyone else,” he said.
“It would be real good. We’d have a real good opportunity,” he said. “The home school, with home players, so it’s definitely something to think about.”
