A playmaker on both sides of the football for Don Bosco Prep, the back-to-back New Jersey state champions and the No.1 football team in the nation, Peppers is the top player at his position (strong safety) and ranked No. 3 overall in the Class of 2014, according to 247Sports. He was named the Air Force national sophomore of the year in '11 after being national freshman of the year in '10.After helping lead Don Bosco Prep to the No. 1 final national ranking and a second straight state title this past season as a running back and cornerback, Peppers transferred in February to nearby Paramus (N.J.) Catholic. His greatest asset might be his speed, which he used to set the New Jersey non-public Class A outdoor 100-meter dash record with a time of 10.77 seconds. The 16-year-old already has offers from Alabama, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Rutgers, South Carolina and UCLA.
