Perry on Michigan State's radar

Brother Rice wide receiver getting into the recruiting progress and getting Big Ten attention, including from Michigan State.

Brother Rice is a powerhouse when it comes to high school football and producing college-level talent.

One of the next top players coming from the Warriors is 2015 wide receiver Grant Perry, who has been hearing from Michigan State for some time now.

"I've been in contact with Coach (Brad) Salem," Perry said. "He came up to Brother Rice and talked to Jon Reschke, a couple others guys and talked to me.

"He had me out on a visit for the spring game and after that he said he wants me to come back up for a football game and really build a relationship."

In his times at MSU, Perry said he has found some things to like about the Spartans program.

"I like the tradition," Perry said. "I like the way they run things and are a well-organized program. I also liked the facilities a lot when I was up there on the visit."

Perry hit the camp circuit a little bit this summer, and one of the stops was in East Lansing for the Spartans' 7 on 7 camp, where the coaches were watching.

"They said they really liked how I played and I did well," Perry said. "They said I run good routes and caught the ball really well."

Perry also has built a relationship with Reschke, a current freshman at MSU.

"Me and Jon, we built a relationship over my sophomore season when I got up to varsity," Perry said. "We have worked out over the summer a little bit before he got up to State."

As for the coming high school season, Perry said Brother Rice is focused on its goal – a third straight state title.

"We are just taking it day by day," Perry said. "People ask what we are going to do and we always have the same saying, ‘taking it day by day' and winning every day. Hopefully, that will take us back to where we want to go and that's Ford Field."

Perry also camped at Michigan and Minnesota and is headed to Western Michigan on Thursday.

He also has visited Purdue, Miami (Ohio) and Western Michigan, while he is hearing from Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa.

He said he will get back out to East Lansing for a game at MSU this fall.
