A fantastic camp performance resulted in Pulaski (Dublin, VA) standout Nubian Peak receiving a tremendous opportunity, and he is taking advantage. Peak, a 5-11, 190-pound rising senior, displayed tremendous speed and athleticism at Virginia Tech’s camp on Saturday. Tech head coach Frank Beamer offered a full scholarship yesterday and Peak has since given his pledge to the Hokies.
“He has verbally committed to Virginia Tech,” Pulaski head coach Jack Turner confirmed this morning.
Peak is being recruited by Virginia Tech as an athlete. Pulaski’s starting running back, he had 158 carries for 1,349 yards last season as a junior. Additionally, he hauled in 11 receptions for 296 yards and scored 16 offensive touchdowns in total.
Highlighted by the offer from Tech, the off-season has indeed been a great one.
“Nubian has really increased his size and strength in the weight room,” Turner said. “He is up to 190 pounds now. I’m looking forward to a great senior season from him.
“Our team went to the playoffs last year, which is tough to do in our district. It’ll be tough again this year, but I’m expecting the same thing.”
Peak is not only strong on the field, but he seems to be a leader off of it as well.
“He is strong academically,” Turner said of Peak. “He receives outstanding grades. He is a great person, on and off the field, which is the best thing about him.”
Peak becomes the fifth high school rising senior to commit to Virginia Tech, joining Stone Bridge (Ashburn, VA) defensive tackle David Wang, D.W. Daniel (Central, S.C.) defensive back Jerrodd Williams, Seventy-First (Fayetteville, N.C.) defensive back James Hopper and Giles (Pearisburg, VA) place-kicker Cody Journell. Williams, Hopper and Journell were also offered by Tech after Saturday’s camp.
Stay tuned for more from Nubian later today, including more details on his performance at Virginia Tech’s camp.
