In the middle of last season, former A&M Consolidated football coach David Raffield predicted NCAA teams would begin to line up to recruit junior safety Kolby Peel toward the spring.
It appears Raffield’s prediction was spot on.
Since the end of the season Peel has picked up offers from Oklahoma State, Minnesota and UT-San Antonio, and already had offers from SMU, Cincinnati, Kansas and Texas State.
The 6-foot, 209-pound defensive back also took a visit to Oklahoma this past weekend, posting a picture tot his Twitter account Saturday with Sooners head coach Bob Stoops and donning an Oklahoma jersey.

Peel had 73 tackles, four interceptions, three pass breakups and three tackles for a loss for the Tigers last season. It certainly seems he'll have a lot of colleges to choose from when it comes time to choose where to play at the next level
Baylor holds Junior Day
College Station defensive lineman MarQuise Conchola and defensive back Quandree White and Bryan offensive lineman Ylijaah Hall attended Baylor’s Junior Day on Saturday.
Hall, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound tackle for the Vikings, announced over Twitter that he received an offer from the Bears. He was an All-District 18-5A honorable mention last season.

Conchola and White are both three-star recruits, according to 247Sports.com, and were key members of a Cougars defense that helped lead the team to the Class 5A Division II semifinal.
“Loved my Baylor visit,” Conchola said in a Twitter post Saturday. “Made me feel at home. Definitely will return!”
Both were All-District 18-5A first-team selections for last year.
