JJ PETERSON

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: LB – No. 1 OLB

HT, WT: 6 foot 1.5, and 210 lbs

SCHOOL: Colquitt County High School

CITY, STATE: Moultrie, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes.

# OFFERS: 11

NEWS & NOTES: J.J. visited UGA back on February 18th and was also on hand for Georgia’s G-Day game back on April 22nd. UGA OLB coach Kevin Sherrer visited J.J.on May 5th, but despite their efforts, the Dogs have some ground to make up here. Right now, Alabama is considered a favorite to land Peterson, but the Moultrie, GA star visited Auburn at least three times since April and has also received a number of off campus visits from Auburn LB Coach Travis Williams; so, keep an eye on the Tigers. Peterson is a very athletic linebacker with some speed, which shows when he also lines up on offense for Colquitt County at WR or RB. Could play OLB or ILB at the next level, but Georgia is recruiting him as an OLB.
