I think on yesterday's Werner show he also commented on Peters, sounded like he thought Peters wanted to play for a Power 5 team & at this point if we pushed he was probably ours to be had, but certainly added a caveat that nothing in recruiting was certain.
Vanderbilt and Illinois are more comparable than Iowa and Illinois in academics. Leaders in football doesn’t mean very much, especially for a person that is planning to let the process play out. I’m sure he wants to make sure he isn’t making a mistake by committing without checking out several places
Like he decided to pick two schools with really good academics? I'm pretty sure it isn't a matter of him being able to get in at BC and Vandy but not at Illinois and Iowa. Vandy isn't on too many fall-back school lists.
