DE excited about Miami's future

David Perry committed to Miami last month over a host of other major college programs. Where does he stand now on other schools? What's he saying about the Canes? Read on to see what he's talking about.

David Perry became one of the most heavily recruited defensive end prospects in Florida this year and the Davie (University) standout committed to Miami last month.

"I'm still committed," Perry said. "It's somewhere where I think I will be comfortable and I just thought it was the best place for me."

Perry, 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, took in three of Miami's home games this season and talked about them.

"I have been to three," he said. "I just like the way they warm up and they play as one. I like the intensity."

The standout defensive end prospect said he's excited about where coach Randy Shannon is taking the program.

"I think it has a lot of potential and it will get better each year," he said. "It has a chance to be something special over the next few years."

Perry, who calls Tommie Robinson his primary recruiter, says he no longer talks to other programs.

"Nope," he said. "When I committed, it was over for me. I'll take a visit to Miami."

Perry talked about his senior season.

"My season went well," he said. "I had a lot of tackles and 10 sacks. My team didn't do well -- 5 and 5. We are done for the year."
