Perrin visits Tulane

The Tulane Green Wave could be first to offer Hahnville offensive lineman Hunter Perrin...

Tulane signed Sergio Medina out of Hahnville this year, and the Green Wave is now taking a close look at Hahnville 2014 offensive lineman Hunter Perrin.

"I was supposed to go to Mississippi State's junior day," Perrin said, "but something came up with my dad's work so I stayed local. I got an e-mail from Coach Neu at Tulane and went to their practice at (Tad) Gormley.

"The o-line coach (John McDonell) told me they haven't offered any offensive linemen yet, but they have a meeting coming up and they'll definitely be stopping by Hahnville."

Perrin hopes that will entail a scholarship offer.

"I'm on their board as either a guard or center," he said. "C.J. (Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson) saw my highlight film and was impressed with how I throw people to the ground. He thinks I'd be a be addition to the Tulane team."

Perrin enjoyed the Tulane practice and has been impressed with the Wave's recruiting efforts the past two years under Johnson.

"The practice reminded me a lot of Hahnville," he said, "the way it's run. It felt like I was at home.

"Tulane is definitely getting good local recruits, and I expect them to end up having a good season next year. The local recruiting they've done will help build the fan base."

Perrin provided many holes for Medina to run through last season.

"Sergio was out there practicing," he said. "He was playing linebacker. I think he hopes he'll also get a chance at running back. He said he'd like to have me blocking for him again."

Hahnville has multiple talented defensive backs on the roster that could warrant serious consideration from the Tulane staff, including junior Jamal Smith and sophomores Jai Knight and Dwaine Thomas.
