Damien basketball Bryce Peters has made a verbal commitment to Colorado, doing so following a visit to that school last week.
“I got there and really just felt a positive energy everywhere around me,” he said. “It was from the coaching staff on down in the community. It was different from other places.”
Peters had a final six that also included Wyoming, Utah, Kansas State, UNLV and Grand Canyon. Wyoming and UNLV were the options that came closest to Colorado.
Peters, a 6-foot-4 guard, is looking for playing time immediately.
“I was the only guard they recruited. They went after big men. So I am looking forward to getting in there and playing,” he said.
Peters averaged 14.4 points, earning first-team All-Baseline League honors and teaming with Jeremy Hemsley and Malik Fitts to give the Spartans three double-figures scoring options. Among his top performances was a 20-point showing in the Southern California Regional final win over Cathedral. Also had 22 in first win over Chino Hills.
He is one of few returners from a team that won the Division 3 state championship and is eagerly awaiting his senior season.
“The decision is out of the way so I can focus on school and my senior year,” he said. “It’s going to be pretty exciting.”
