Everybody--and we mean that--wants Dorman's Peake

'How good is Spartanburg Dorman High junior Charone Peake?

“Everybody has offered him (a scholarship), and I mean everybody,” Dorman coach Dave Gutshall said a few minutes ago. “All the SEC teams, all the ACC teams. I can’t think of a school that hasn’t offered him.”

Peake, who made our list of South Carolina’s Top Ten juniors last month, is what coaches like to call “a beast.”

Gutshall moves Peake, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver, all over the field in order to get the ball in his hands.

In Friday night’s 35-14 whipping of Greenwood, Peake caught five passes for 70 yards and a touchdown, and rushed ten times for 88 yards and another score.

A couple of other notes. Consider that despite his height, he has 4.4-second speed in the 40. And that as a freshman moved up to the varsity, he took the first four passes he caught for touchdowns.
