Perry, a one-time Georgia commit, picked the Wolverines in November of 2018. I never had the time to do a commitment post on him, since it was near the end of football season, and then the holidays happened, etc. So this might be the first you’ve read any kind of assessment of him from me.
Anyway, I like Perry a good amount. He has size, speed, athleticism, physicality, ball skills, and all the things you want from a cornerback prospect. Considering Michigan’s track record of developing cornerbacks over the past several years, good things are likely to happen. This season it will be tough to get on the field much, because Lavert Hill and Ambry Thomas are the starters. But a year from now, Perry should be pushing for playing time, and I think the coaching staff will start to get his feet wet this fall.
Prediction: Backup cornerback
