Peters hit .419/.510/.734 with 16 home runs and 14 doubles as a sophomore with Western Nevada Community College in 2016, the final year of the school's baseball program. He is headed for Cal State Fullerton if he doesn't turn pro.
He was named the Scenic West Athletic Conference player of the year in May.
Listed at 6'6 and 225 pounds, Peters bats and throws right-handed.
"He's a tremendous talent," said WNC baseball coach D.J. Whittemore. "There is a good chance for DJ to be taken in the first 15 rounds, and it's not crazy to say that he'll be taken in the top 10 rounds,"
But he ranked No. 290 in Baseball America's top 500, which noted his strength and raw power, and said he was "an average runner underway who has a plus arm."
