RIVERDALE, Ga. — JJ Peterson, the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker from Colquitt County High School in Georgia, had coaches from Alabama and Auburn at his spring game against Drew High School on Saturday.
The 4-star recruit shined in front of Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, as well as Tigers DC Kevin Steele and linebackers coach Travis Williams. The Crimson Tide lead for Peterson, who doesn’t have a timetable for his commitment.
Colquitt County coach Rush Propst told SEC Country after the game that Peterson is one of the best players he’s ever coached. Propst has coached for more than 20 years in Alabama and Georgia and has coached the likes of former Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson and ex-Florida standout WR Chad Jackson.
