2019 will be Perry’s first year playing football full-time. As Adam Munsterteiger wrote last week, Perry began focusing on football at immediately saw improvements on the gridiron. He broke out in his sophomore year and was named team MVP.
At 6’2, 240 lbs., Perry is quick to the ball and makes ball carriers pay. He also demonstrates a knack for the big play both in coverage and rushing the passer. He had six sacks in 2018, a few forced fumbles, and an interception that he returned for a score. It’s worth mentioning too that he was all-league as a punter, a skill he carrier over from rugby.
Perry has three years to play two. He will compete for playing time with sophomore Jonathan Van Diest and junior Akil Jones at the inside linebacker spot next to junior Nate Landman. He’s probably going to see the most time on special teams, at least for now.
