Both of his parents attended Arizona, and his dad played football for the ‘Cats.

My Thoughts: Peters’ junior season was cut short due to an Achilles injury. He worked and rehabbed hard during the offseason and was ready to go for his senior season. He has great hands and kind of reminds me of Bryce Wolma. He also has no qualms run blocking and is actually pretty good at it. He fits exactly what Rich Rodriguez is looking for in a tight end.

Senior Highlights:

Peters’ thoughts on becoming a Wildcat: “I’m so excited to be a Wildcat! I was thinking about it (early enrolling) but decided not to. You’re only in high school once. It’s crazy. I’m still very excited to get there and compete on June 17th.”
