PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College men's basketball team signed Kevin Peterson to their 2018 recruiting class.
Padua Franciscan High School
Brian Ansberry – High School Coach
As a senior Peterson is averaging 21 points per game, and grabs just over four rebounds. He has had three 30 point games as a senior, and was named All-Ohio Honorable Mention.
Peterson leaves his high school as the third all time leading scorer, as he amassed 1,208 points. He was twice named First Team North Coast League, and All-District.
Head Coach Kyle Conley's comments: I am very excited to add Kevin Peterson to our program. Kevin is a tremendous student-athlete, he has had a great high school career in the classroom and on the court. We started watching Kevin closely over a year ago and knew then he needed to be a priority in our 2018 recruiting. Kevin is a highly skilled 6'7 forward with unlimited range and the size and athleticism to finish plays at the rim. Kevin was also an All-Conference quarterback at Padua, now that Kevin is focusing strictly on basketball I believe he has a high ceiling in our program.
