Another huge prospect is set to visit this weekend when the Sooners take on the Volunteers. OLB/DE Cassius Peat 6'4" 235lbs. from Corona Del Sol High School in Tempe, AZ will be on campus this weekend.
Bob Przybylo of Scout.com confirmed Peat's visit via twitter
Intriguing 24 hrs for #Sooners. Targets Cassius Peat & @NewBoi17 supposed to visit Oregon. Both aren't & Newsome says Ducks are out— Bob Przybylo (@BPrzybylo) September 4, 2014
Peat is an intriguing prospect who has the size to be a major factor as an OLB for the Sooners. Players like Peat will continue to be the focus as OU will continue to get bigger at OLB with the permanent move to the 3-4.
Peat recently tweeted his top 6 schools and there has already been a change to that. He will no longer be visiting Oregon.
Very blessed to be at this point. Want to thank all the schools who've recruited me. Top 6. pic.twitter.com/1djzkX7NU0— Cassius Peat (@cassiuspeat) June 28, 2014
Peat will be a tough pull as the hometown Sun Devils and Texas A&M are pushing for his commitment as well. A huge Sooner win this weekend could go a long way to determining whether Peat ends up a part of the class of 2015.
Peat is a 3 star recruit on Rivals and 4 Star on Scout.
