Pompano Beach (Fla.) Blanche Ely wide receiver Devante Peete is starting to get a lot of interest by some of the top programs in the country and he is only going into his sophomore year.
“I love UM as of right now,” Peete said about his hometown team. “I am getting a lot of interest from UF, UM, FSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Purdue, Iowa and North Carolina.”
“Purdue is close to offering me. They came to watch me this spring and they throw the ball a whole lot. I am just starting to learn about their program.”
It is still very early in the recruiting process, but three schools are standing out. “I am open to all schools, but right now its Miami, Florida and Florida State. I have grown up watching those schools. I like schools that throw the ball a lot and have good receivers. Miami has good receivers. A lot of players that are playing in the National Football League played at Miami.
Peete, who holds a 2.9 GPA, attended the Al Golden Football Camp where had the opportunity to work with Miami tight ends coach Brennan Carroll and wide receivers coach George McDonald.
“I did good,” Peete said about his performance from last Thursday’s Al Golden Camp. “I have a great relationship with the tight ends coach. He is very interested in me. And also the wideout coach is teaching me a lot. I love their whole coaching staff.”
Although college is over three years away, he knows some of the key things that he will be looking for at the next level. “I am going to be looking for a good coaching staff, good quarterback and a good relationship with my cornerbacks so they can work with me,” said the 6’5, 175-pound wideout.
