Peace decommits from Michigan
DeWayne Peace made his commitment to Michigan. Then after some hesitancy he reaffirmed his commitment just a month ago. However, Peace has now cut ties with the Wolverines as he informed them on Wednesday that he was no longer committed.It was all the way back in June when South Grand Prairie receiver
"To tell you the truth, I wanted to play wide receiver," Peace said. "I told the Michigan coaches that I wanted to play receiver. At the beginning of my commitment they said I could play cornerback or receiver. Then as time went on, I went on my visit and told them I just wanted to play receiver and if I could only play corner then I would look for another school to go to. They told me that it was fine and I could play receiver. Then something came up where they didn't land enough corners so that is where they wanted me."
The 6-foot, 177-pound star athlete feels he could play corner, but it's not where he wants to be. During the summer Peace more than showed his ability as a receiver as he took home MVP for the receivers at the Fort Worth Nike camp.
"It's just not in my heart to play corner so now I'm scrambling and looking for another school to go to in the last hour of recruiting," Peace said.
As he scrambles to get back into recruiting, he has already started putting a list together. He went back to the schools that were recruiting him heavily from the start.
"I guess I'll start with the list of schools that I've talked to. I still have Kansas and Colorado State. I still have offers on the table from them. Then Arizona is supposed to come by the school tomorrow to talk to me. TCU has also told me that they have an open spot at wide receiver," Peace said.
While he hasn't been able to completely dive back in to recruiting, there is a school that is on the top of his list. Of course it doesn't hurt that his high school teammate Randall Dent is already committed to that school.
"To tell you the truth Kansas would be my favorite right now," Peace said.
Peace had a great senior season at receiver. However, he feels it could have been bigger, but opposing defenses did everything they could to keep the ball out of his hands.
"Through the first six games I had like eight or nine touchdowns and 45 receptions. Then I just started getting double-teamed and triple-teamed a lot," Peace said.
While Peace feels like he's scrambling to find a new school, there are most likely plenty of schools that would love to take the talented receiver.
