Covering High School Sports in America

Andrus Peat isn't committed to Nebraska just yet.

Richard Obert, Arizona's superb and most connected journalist, reports that Andrus Peat will likely head to Florida State this weekend for a late football visit.

Peat, a 6-foot-7, 305-pound offensive tackle, is MaxPreps.com's No. 8 recruit overall. He and No. 1 Dorial Green-Beckham, are the only Top 10 recruits not yet committed.

Peat reportedly visited USC last weekend and is also favoring Nebraska and Stanford, according to Obert.

Peat, like a couple of other 4- or 5-star lineman, is starring on his school's basketball team as well.

The Corona del Sol (Tempe, Ariz.) senior is a center on the school's top Arizona-ranked basketball team which is 17-1.

Peat's brother Todd Jr. is at Nebraska and where his football and basketball teammate Avery Moss is committed as well. But Andrus Peat isn't ready to say that the Cornhuskers are a sure thing.

"I'm not going to totally base my decision on that," Peat told Obert. "I just want to make sure that I'm comfortable."

* In other Arizona recruiting news, Chaparral senior receiver Davonte' Neal has been extremely busy this week and in an unusual piece of news, he's planning to take a recruiting trip to Arizona - 10 days after National Signing Day.

Davonte' Neal's recruitment is still wide open and all over the map.

What's that?

According to Obert, Neal will make that visit Feb. 11 and that was decided after a two-hour meeting with Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez and assistants Tony Dews and Robert Anae on Wednesday.

Anae was kept on from Mike Stoops' staff and he has a strong relationship with Neal and his family. Neal told Obert that they were very impressed with Rodriguez, the former Michigan and West Virginia coach.

Neal, the No. 67 recruit overall, met with North Carolina coaches Tuesday, and will meet with Ohio State and Notre Dame coaches Thursday, and will travel to Arkansas for an official visit over the weekend. He may then meet with Arizona State coach Todd Graham.

Neal made an official visit to Ohio State last week, according to Obert.

If he indeed keeps his Feb. 11 date with Arizona, Neal will obviously not be signing on dotted line on National Signing Day.

Neal had more than 1,000 yards rushing and receiving for Chaparral's state-championship 14-1 season. Chaparral won 14 straight games after opening with a loss to Nevada power Bishop Gorman. He's a two-time Gatorade state Player of the Year.
