Xavier Peters’ commitment to Kentucky has been in question ever since the 4-star linebacker deleted his commitment tweet soon after it was posted. He then followed up with this message.
I still have to sit down and think about some things 🤔💯 #life

But Peters told Scout.com’s Bill Greene that he still is committed to the Wildcats. Peters of West Chester, Ohio, said proximity played a big part in his decision. He didn’t want his mom and grandparents to be too far away.
Although he remains committed, Peters said he plans to visit USC, Texas, Oregon, Penn State and Tennessee.
Peters is one of two Kentucky commitments from Lakota West High School in West Chester. Defensive tackle Tyler Bentley, who committed to the Wildcats on June 11, is a high school teammate of Peters. It’s the same school that produced current Wildcats George Asafo-Adjei, Kyle Meadows and Kayaune Ross.
