L.J. Peak has a top five.
The 6-foot-5 2014 small forward from Gaffney (S.C.) Tweeted his top five were South Carolina, Georgetown, Ohio State, Florida State and UConn.
This past season, Peak helped lead Chicago Whitney Young to the Class 4A sectional finals and a Top 10 national ranking. He has since returned home to Gaffney for his senior season.
Peak runs with the CP3 All-Stars, who also feature North Carolina-bound wingTheo Pinson of High Point (S.C.) Wesleyan Christian, Wake Forest-bound point guard Shelton Mitchell and power forward Gary Clark.
“He’s very good,” CP3 coach Steve Shelton told SNY.tv of Peak. “He’s always played inside because of his height. He’s only been playing on the perimeter the last two years.”
Shelton said Peak has unofficially visited South Carolina and has no officials scheduled yet.
