College Football: Cassius Peat to Decide School on National Signing Day

Cassius Peat, a 4-star senior outside linebacker (6'3", 235 pounds) out of Corona del Sol High School (Tempe, Arizona), has decided to wait until national signing day to announce where he will take his talents, according to Jared Cohen of Sports360AZ.

The son of former NFL football player Todd Peat and the younger brother of Todd Jr., who transferred from Nebraska to Glendale Community College in 2012, and Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat, committed to UCLA on Oct. 13 but then decided to revisit his decision once November rolled around and the 2014 high school football season had ended.

Besides UCLA, schools such as Michigan State, Arizona State, Oklahoma and Texas A&M are also on his radar. He currently has two official visits remaining and will have in-home visits as the recruitment process nears an end in the final month.

In his final season with the Aztecs, he recorded 45 total tackles, seven tackles for loss and four sacks.

At the moment, Peat is playing his last season of basketball on a nationally ranked Corona del Sol team that is looking to win its fourth consecutive Division I state championship.

The Aztecs knocked of Federal Way from Washington 73-51 on Dec. 30 and came up just short against Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, California), which is currently ranked sixth nationally, 65-64 on Saturday night.

While basketball will occupy Peat for the time being, his decision on where he will be playing college football remains a mystery. The program fortunate enough to have him join its linebacking corps will gain a player who possesses physical strength and athleticism.

According to, Peat is the ninth-best player in the state of Arizona, with the first being highly touted wide receiver Christian Kirk (Saguaro High School, Scottsdale, Arizona), who committed to Texas A&M on Dec. 17.

Peat will make his final decision on Wednesday, Feb. 4.
