Patrick Peterson gave a quick denial regarding yesterday's ESPN report about him and Will Lyles, calling it "all baloney." He further denied ever visiting Texas A&M, which contradicts his father's reports of him making a visit there.
For what it's worth, neither his Rivals nor his Scout recruiting profiles say he made an official visit to Texas A&M. That doesn't rule out the possibility of an unofficial visit though.
Peterson did make an unofficial visit to College Station after all.
Peterson has made an official denial of both having a relationship with Lyles and of taking anything in exchange for his commitment through LSU's official football channel.
Here is a non-paywall'd link for the link on Peterson's A&M visit. In it, Peterson says he and his dad were in Houston visiting a friend and decided to swing by College Station. The author of the article says that he confirmed at the time that the "friend" was Will Lyles.
Peterson also said at the time that he would take an official visit to A&M "for sure." He said A&M and USC were the only schools he was definitely going to visit, and possibly Florida as well. Van Malone says Lyles' call and Malone's rejection of the money request came a couple days after this visit. Peterson never ended up making that official visit to College Station.
