Peters gets pick out of the way
A six-footer from New Orleans (La.) Landry-Walker, Peters announced via his twitter account that he has decided to end his recruitment and will be playing his college ball at Mississippi State.

Tough and quick, Peters has always been able to get to the rim and either score or find teammates for open shots. He has also been a strong on the ball defender. During the spring, though, Peters showed new wrinkles to his game as he looked more comfortable taking and making jumpers from deep and showed off a much improved mid range game.
The first commitment for Mississippi State from the class of 2016, Peters will be making the jump to four-star prospect when the class of 2016 rankings get updated in the latter part of June.
Since taking the Bulldogs job on March 23rd, Ben Howland has been flexing some serious recruiting muscle. He convinced 2015 five-star Malik Newman to stay home and also talked 2016 four-star power forward Aric Holman to not only commit but to go ahead and head to Starkville as a class of 2015 prospect instead of attending prep school. Now he has Peters in the fold and there's no reason to think that Howland and his staff won't be able to land more highly regarded talent.
