Michigan Wolverine Recruiting: Brandon Peters 2016 Commit Profile

GBMWolverine Readers: Here is a overview of University of Michigan recent verbal commitment Brandon Peters.

Indiana high school Class of 2016 quarterback Brandon Peters committed to Coach Jim Harbaugh before the spring game: some report at dinner on Friday night. The Wolverines had steadfastly been his leader and the commit was not unexpected.

The quarterback corps ranks on paper is swelling to capacity, or some would say over capacity. Make no mistake, Coach Jim Harbaugh is going to continue to recruit quarterbacks of all modes until he finds one, or two, or three, or four he is confident can do the job.

Brandon Peters has height and smarts. He needs to fill out but is a strong all-around athlete. Peters at this stage is one of the top quarterback prospects in the Midwest region. Time will tell who continues to heavily recruit Peters after this weekend’s commitment.

Peters, for stargazers, is perhaps best described as a low four star recruit with potential to jump up the rankings next year. He is not superior at any one skill, but collectively good at about everything. He reads the field well, has a decent arsenal of throws, and is athletic enough to play at the D1 level.

Below is the quick overview of Brandon Peters.

Stars do matter, but are not absolute in predicting success within a football program. So, with that in mind the GBMWolverine Staff has cleverly come up with a new system of ranking. We are using footballs instead of stars, how can one argue against a system that clever? Below are the interpretations of football power predicted way too boldly long before it matters. In other words, we will give informed opinion with the crystal ball and let the players determine what will happen through years of hard work.

Criteria: Raw talent, athleticism, position of need, intangibles.

GBMWolverine Rankings:

10 footballs: Instant impact player.
9 footballs: Three or four-year starter at a high level.
8 footballs: A starter with all league potential.
7 footballs: A meaningful starter at some time during a career.
6 footballs: A spot starter or special teams player.
5 footballs: Not in the two deep after a two years.
4 footballs: Never made it.
1-3 footballs: See the above.

We have him at 8 – 8 1/2 footballs.

Side Note:

Remember just as we did during the season with grading positions or groups we are very tough graders and expect a lot out of those positions or players so this is no different here.

  • Overview:

    Brandon Peters has the ideal length for the quarterback position. He also shows the overall athletic ability to shine in multiple offenses. Brandon passed for approximately 1900 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior. He rushed for 244 yards and 5 touchdowns as well and is a starting forward on his high school basketball team.


    Excellent body and frame; Peters moves very well for his size. He displays a plus arm and has excellent spin/rotation on his passes. While not a polished product yet, Peters has solid arm motion and release. Add in toughness plus a nice football sense and you have a top quarterback prospect.

    Concerns/Needs Work:

    Definitely needs to add weight and strength. Does not have a huge arm, but should improve as he matures and gains strength. His footwork also needs a bit of refining.

    Red-shirt or play his Freshman Year?

    GBMWolverine believes he will likely red-shirt his first year with so many quarterbacks in front of him right now no reason to waste a year unless he is clearly better than the rest.

    Brandon Peters reminds the GBMWolverine Staff of — Former Michigan Football Player — Drew Henson — who played Quarterback.

    High School Coach Comments:

    “He feels pressure in the pocket, but he doesn’t panic. He’s smooth back there, he can make all the throws, and he’s very athletic. We don’t utilize his ability to run the ball as much as we’d like to, but we try to keep him healthy. Colleges look at his film and see how well he can throw the ball. He has a very good skill set, but he’s also very smart.” – Avon head coach Mark Bless

    Video Highlights:

    2016 Michigan Football Class:

    Michigan currently has four recruits at this time with Erik Swenson (OL) and Dele Harding (LB), Brandon Peters (QB), and David Reese (LB/FB).

    Final Thoughts:

    We welcome Brandon Peters to Michigan and hope he has a successful career on and off the football field as a student-athlete at the University of Michigan. Go Blue!
