Arizona State Sun Devils

ASU is the other local option for Peat and unlike Arizona, he’d be the clear-cut go-to option and face of the program for however long he’s there. On the flip side, unless more talent joins him, Peat would be risking not going to the NCAA Tournament. Plus, while Coach Bobby Hurley is getting the team together in Pac-12 play, he’s still a “hot seat” candidate and very well might not be around for the 2025-26 season.

Baylor Bears

The Bears have had some nice success with recent five-star players joining the program. That includes Yves Missi, a reclassed forward having nice success as a freshman this season. While Baylor may be in the “new blood” category, they’ve become an NCAA Basketball power and as long as Coach Scott Drew is around, would be a nice option for Peat to consider.

Duke Blue Devils

Of course, Duke is going to be a contender for someone like Peat, as the many selling points are obvious for what they can offer. What they might not be able to offer are big minutes, considering all the other top prospects the team lands each class, as well as the potential of landing two other five-star forwards in the Boozer brothers, Cayden and Cameron. If the Blue Devils land those two, they probably won’t focus on Peat.
