In tonight’s Under Armour All-American Game, four-star Kentucky football commitment Xavier Peters put on a show.
Though no official statistics were immediately available, initial reports are that Peters finished with four tackles, one pass deflection, one near-sack in the end zone to force a safety, and this long kickoff return featuring a nasty hurdle over the kicker.
