Peters will bring to WSU a physical presence to the middle and is adept at finishing with either hand.
"Richard is the big body, 6-10 and 260 pounds, that we were hoping to be able to add to our program," Bone said. "He plays with a lot of energy on the floor, and with that passion for the game he has a chance to be a very good player."
Scout.com's database shows offers for Peterson from %%MATCH_10%%, %%MATCH_7%%, %%MATCH_9%%, Steon Hall, %%MATCH_5%% and %%MATCH_6%%, though Peters said the UW offer was later put on the back burner.
Peters played one year at Westwind Prep International after attending Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H. As a sophomore at Brewster Academy he averaged 10.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks. Originally from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Peters competed on the Under-17 Canadian National team in the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Under-17 World Championships at Hamburg, Germany where the team earned a third-place finish during the summer following his sophomore year at Brewster Academy.
The Cougars open the season Monday, Nov. 14 at %%MATCH_8%% at 9 p.m. The game will be televised by ESPN and kicks off ESPN's 2011 College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon.
