Tennessee surprised many by offering Perry, who only had an offer from Kentucky and a few lower-level schools, before the 2014 season. A transfer from Pope John Paul II in Hendersonville, Tenn., who also has dealt with some injuries, Perry has limited high school experience. But he’ll have a chance to blow up this fall at Hillsboro if he is healthy. He’ll be playing alongside top UT defensive line target Kyle Phillips at Hillsboro. Committed to the Vols on 10/8.
RTI Average: 3-stars
In limited film, Perry shows incredible shiftiness and great acceleration. Primarily used as a running back, he could also project as a slot receiver, cornerback or possibly a return specialist. Could be described as a larger Devrin Young in some aspects. He had a solid 2014 season through the time of his commitment and Tennessee obviously feels comfortable with his athleticism and versatility. He’ll be recruiting his teammate, Vol defensive line target Kyle Phillips, hard in the coming months.
