Mike's Take: USF DE commit
What to Like: At 6-foot-7, he's long and lean. He can get upfield in a hurry and can use a very large wingspan to get opposing linemen off his pads. Athletically, he gets around pretty good and can make some things happen as a pass rusher. He's also shown some skills as a tight end although he'll enter college as a defensive end prospect. He plays at one of the top programs in south Florida and helped them reach the state championship game as a junior so he's been around quality competition. What may concern you: He needs to add weight -- lots of weight -- and get stronger. He has the frame but will get pushed around in the running game, even at the prep level. While he shows some ability to get upfield, the pass rushing production numbers weren't all that great. He needs to be more of a playmaker in the passing game, especially with his limitations in the running game. Bottom Line: Perry, whose brother (David) is a redshirt freshman defensive end at Miami, committed to USF over a few other Division 1 programs. He was recruited like a high two-star or maybe low three-star prospect. The Bulls did a good job of getting him to commit now because he has the upside to make some more noise on the field as a senior this fall, which could cause his recruiting stock to go up.
