Avon Grove sophomore attackman/midfielder Tanner Peck has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Penn State University.

Peck, who plays for the Duke’s Lacrosse Club, becomes the second Philly boy from the Class of 2014 to make a Division I commitment public. The first, last week, was Malvern Prep defenseman Greg Pelton (Duke).

Undecided, leaning toward business

Why did you choose school? “I wanted to play under coach (Jeff) Tambroni and I wanted to be part of a program that is coming up in college lacrosse. I want to help Penn State get to a place where they have never been in college lacrosse.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “This year we’re going to be good. We’re a little young, but we lost 15 seniors. But at the same time, we have some good returning varsity players. If we play unselfish and play as a team, I think we have the potential.”

Other comments:
“I’d like to thank the Dukes organization as a whole, my parents, my high school coach, Eric Jackson, and my family.”
