What makes Peterson an effective young player?

“You dream of the dynamic player,” cornerbacks coach Van Malone said. “But really, you want the consistent player. He studies the film, he knows what his assignment is and he always is where he's supposed to be.

“If he's challenged and (the offense) makes a play, then he comes back because he learns from his mistake and then he goes back and corrects it.”

Peterson recorded 20 tackles and two pass breakups in 2012 while playing in all 13 games, including one start.


Music has started to blare outside the OSU practice fields, with the playlist seamlessly transitioning Tuesday from Justin Timberlake's “Suit and Tie” to AC/DC's “You Shook Me All Night Long” to Eminem's “Lose Yourself.”

Gundy enjoys the variety of tunes played during the workouts.

“I tell them to throw some 70s and 80s in and they throw in whatever they like,” he said. “And we try to be equal across the board — a little country and a little pop and a little rap and a little rock and a little retro.”
