Homestate Headliners

Adarrius Perkins was one of the first names recruiting fans in the state of Mississippi became familiar with when conversations about the 2012 class began. The Forrest County Agricultural School standout built some momentum after a strong junior season that ended deep in the 4A state playoffs. Perkins has been a little reclusive this summer, but he has plans to travel a good bit later this month.

"The only place I have been so far is up to Mississippi State for their camp," said Perkins of his summer camping trips.

"It went good. I got to work out at DB and receiver. I feel like I did good at both positions.

"Coach Tony Hughes told me that I did good and that he was glad I came."

The Bulldogs will be one of three programs to host Adarrius over the course of the next two weeks.

"I am going to Southern Miss for their camp coming up," said Perkins. "I am going back to Mississippi State for the Big Dawg camp and then I am going to Ole Miss for their camp the next day."

Several schools have shown interest in signing the Mississippi pinebelt star, but it appears the chances of Adarrius staying in state are pretty good.

"The three in state schools are all recruiting me pretty hard," said Perkins. "Coach Tony Hughes from Mississippi State looks like he wants to reach out to me a little more right now, but they are all showing me a lot of interest.

"I like all three of them (Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss). They all offered me early and they have shown me a lot of interest.

"I have visited all of them more than once, so I feel comfortable with all of them. I know about all of them."

Adarrius has not set a time frame for a decision, but he has not ruled out a pre-season commitment.

"I am not sure when I am going to decide," said Perkins. "I feel like I will know when it's time.

"It might be after the season or it might be some other time. I just don't know.

"I don't want to rush my decision and then second guess myself."

Once Adarrius completes his summer travels, he will turn his full focus towards FCAHS Aggie football.

"We have some young guys coming up that can be good players," explained Perkins. "We're all working hard to get better and we're going to be out there doing what we always do."
