Peter Kikwata

WR Peter Kikwata (6-1 170) of Germantown, MD was at USC for an official visit over the weekend. Kikwata is a four-star prospect and ranked the #45 WR nationally and the #6 prospect in Maryland in the 247Sports Composite. Last season he caught 16 passes for 500 yards and 8 touchdowns in a shortened schedule.

His other offers include West Virginia, Florida State, Duke, Kentucky, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Auburn, Tennessee, Arkansas, Penn State, Vanderbilt, Pitt, Boston College, Maryland and Miami.

Kikwata had this review of his weekend with the Gamecocks after wrapping things up Sunday afternoon:

“It was great.  I enjoyed myself.  I enjoyed myself with the coaches and the players.  I felt like it was a genuine family.  It felt like a second home honestly.  As soon as I walked out the hotel, there’s plenty of things to do, plenty of people roaming around.  Great people, also.”

On his conversation with receives coach Justin Stepp:

“I sat in the office with coach (Justin) Stepp for like an hour talking straight football.  I loved what they’re trying to do with me here, trying to move me around, not keep me in one place, make mismatches, matchups.  I loved it.”

On where USC stands with him after his official visit:

“South Carolina is definitely a top contender.  It’s my relationship with Coach Stepp.  I knew him since he was at Arkansas, so he offered when he first got the job down here.  I’ve built a relationship with other coaches on the staff.  And once I came, they greeted me with open arms, treated me like I was family.  The players did also.”

Kikwata has an official visit set with West Virginia for June 24th. He does not have any other official visits planned for June or late July and is planning on taking the rest in the fall.
