Kentucky’s top priority between now and National Signing Day is to keep Xavier Peters on board until he puts his John Hancock on the paper. They had hoped to get the four-star linebacker’s signature in December, but he elected to hold off until February (although he insists he remains committed). Peters was the only UK commit to pass up the opportunity to sign in the early signing period.
Things seem to be going well in Operation Keep Peters Committed as February gets closer, but the fight is going to get a little tougher now that Peters has scheduled two new visits to elite programs.
He recently added trips to Florida State and Miami, on top of his upcoming trip to Florida, this coming weekend.
The Miami visit is set for the weekend of January 27, only a week and a half before Signing Day, per Mike Dyer of WCPO Cincinnati.
Football recruiting is such a grind.
