Five-star UNC basketball target sets first official visit to Blue Blood program

The recruitment for five-star guard Darryn Peterson is starting to pick up as his junior season of high school basketball is wrapping up. The Huntington Prep product is among the top players in the country and is ready for visits.

With 20 offers in his recruitment so far, Peterson has top programs after him and he’s ready to visit one of those Blue Blood programs. Per Eric Bossi of 247Sports, Peterson has set his first official visit and is heading to Kentucky on March 6th to see the Wildcats.  He’s expected to take more visits in his recruitment and North Carolina should be a school he at least visits.

The 6-foot-5, 195-pound Peterson is ranked No. 3 overall, the No. 1 shooting guard and No. 1 player in the 247Sports recruiting rankings. Peterson’s recruitment has been quiet of late, although he did cut his list of offers down to a top 8 which included North Carolina, Arkansas, Baylor, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Ohio State, and Michigan.
