A player that is emerging as a budding star on the recruiting front in the Evergreen State during the 2016 recruiting cycle is none other than Central Valley (Spokane, Wa.) OT Scott Peck. The talented lineman is up to five offers and he recently updated Northwest Elite Index on his plans for camps this summer.
“My offers right now are from Montana, Idaho, Washington State, Eastern Washington and Utah just came in pretty recently,” Peck told NEI recently. “I’ve been hearing from a couple of other schools like Washington, they just came by my school, and Oregon and Boise State have both told me they plan to drop by this month at some point too, but I haven’t talked to them much yet.”
As a junior last season, the 6’6″, 285-pounder started every game at left tackle for the Bears, showing the ability to pull and be effective both as a pass-blocker and as a run-blocker.
“My mentality when I am out there is, if the guy across from me isn’t on the ground, then I didn’t get a good block,” Peck said. “I finish my blocks pretty well and I seal the edge pretty well too. It’s sorta a combination of mentality and my athleticism.”
While he’s one of the best finishers in the state, Peck still has a lot he’s working on to help him have the best senior season possible.
“I’m working on getting more athletic and to improve my foot speed,” Peck noted. “I’m also in the weight-room a lot because I know I need to get bigger and stronger.”
As far as camps this spring and summer, Pack said he’s worked out a plan to see several schools to make the rounds while meeting coaches and working out for them.
“I’m going to six camps,” Peck said. “I’m going to one at Montana, Washington’s camp (June 6th), the Northwest Elite camp (at Lynnwood High School on June 5th), Boise State and then the Nike Camp at Oregon and then Oregon’s Team Camp, so things will be busy.”
Because he plays at a school that hasn’t produced a lot of high-end talent, Peck is a player that is just now starting to pop up on a lot of radars, but with his prototypical size, athleticism and the mentality with which he plays the game, he should be a prospect with quite a few more offers before he’s ready to make his decision.
