Peters' ascent started before his summer with D.C. Assault. He averaged 23 points. 5.2 assists and 2.4 steals as a junior, including 30.5 points per game during the Rams' four-game playoff run. Handon, whose Under Armour-sponsored program has featured several high-major lead guards – including Tyler Thornton (Duke), Quinn Cook (Duke), Eric Atkins (Notre Dame), Jerome Seagears (Rutgers), Nolan Smith (Portland Trailblazers, Duke) – made adding Peters to his roster for the spring and summer his top priority.
