"My favorites are Colorado, San Diego State, and Notre Dame," said Perkins. "I am really liking Notre Dame after attending their summer camp. I think I had a real good camp. Their coaches told me they would be watching my first couple of games. A lot of schools have told me that."
Tyler says that BYU and San Diego State are showing the most attention. He likes Brigham Young and also UCLA. "Most schools have invited me out to see all of their games this season, so I will probably attend games at some of the local schools."
Perkins again stated what he sees in Colorado. "Everone I talk to just says it's a great school. Brandon Nicolas loved his visit there a couple of years ago and Jon Guydon really likes it there. Him and I have the same personal trainer."
All schools like Tyler as a center. He will also be playing defense this year. "I am going to start at center and d-tackle. This will be my first year playing at tackle so I look forward to it."
Perkins scored a 910 on his SAT, and will re-take it in October, along with his ACT.
Mater Dei faces Orange Lutheran in their first game September 10th.
