Peterman, who attends Trail High School in Jacksonville, Fla., chose the Vols after receiving a scholarship offer during a camp at UT earlier this week. He also considered Vanderbilt, Cincinnati and Wake Forest.
“I’m very excited about my decision,” Peterman told the Florida Times-Union. “When I went up there to Tennessee, I talked to the coaches and really liked what they had to say. Their type of offense fits me really well. It’s the SEC and the facilities are great.”
Peterman is the first quarterback to commit to UT’s class of 2012. The Vols have six commitments total for 2012.
