Alec Peters, a 6-foot-7 power forward from Washington, Illinois, is on campus this weekend for his official visit. The wing plays for Washington High School (IL) and the Peoria Irish AAU team. Peters claims offers from over a dozen programs, including Butler, Loyola Chicago, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Rice, Saint Louis, San Diego State, Southern Illinois, Illinois-Chicago and Valparaiso.
The Chicago Sun-Times ranks Peters as the #10 local prospect in the Class of 2013.
Plain and simple, he's the best shooter in Illinois. Yes, he's limited athletically. But when you're 6-7, fundamentally sound with a good I.Q., crafty and can shoot the ball the way he does, you're a wanted man. He plays the game right and is a must-get recruit for any mid-major plus type program involved with him.
Donahue and the Eagles don't have anyone signed to the Class of 2013 just yet, but do have offers out to seven non-committed players -- Peters among them. The other non-committed players on BC's radar include SF Wayne Selden (Boston, MA), C Kennedy Meeks (Charlotte, NC), SG Sindarius Thornwell (Lancaster, SC), SF B.J. Johnson (Ardmore, PA), SG Sam Singer (Miami, FL) and PF Samuel Dingba (Salisbury, CT).
Barring any roster attrition, Boston College has 1-2 scholarship roster spots available for the 2013 recruiting class.
