Xavier Peters, a four-star linebacker at Lakota West, has named his top 10 schools as summer begins.
There’s a heavy SEC flavor to the group, including Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida and Georgia.
Peters also lists Cincinnati, USC, Texas, Oregon and Penn State.
“It kills me that I have to narrow down to 10 schools but that’s just part of this process,” he wrote in a message posted to Twitter. “I couldn’t have done it without the man above.”
Peters is the No. 250 prospect in the nation and No. 9 in Ohio in the 247sports composite rankings.
Kentucky has already claimed two of the top prospects in the area for 2018, including Lakota West defensive lineman Tyler Bentley.
Alex Reigelsperger, a defensive end from Wayne, has also committed to UK, while four-star defensive end Malik Vann of Fairfield has committed to Cincinnati.
