Perry hearing from Dawgs, Tech and Gators

Lowndes has won 23 games in the last three seasons, including two state titles in that time.

Darriet Perry has been the Viking who has started at running back during that run.

"I will be a four-year starter this fall," he said. "I am only 632 yards away from breaking the school rushing record."

That sort of production leads to schools being interesting in a high school player.

"I am hearing from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Clemson and Florida State," he said.

Perry has unofficially visited both Tech and Georgia and says both schools and says he wants to hear more from both in-state schools.

"Coach Ball is recruiting me for Georgia,' Perry said. "It's been a few weeks since I have heard from him. He wrote me, telling me that Georgia wants me to come up to their summer camp, and I am thinking about that right now."

Still, Tech and Georgia will have to beware of the defending national champs.

"Florida wants me to come down there and play running back for them," Perry said. "And they are a school I am looking forward to learning a little bit more about."

Camps will be a vital part of Perry's recruiting process as he has yet to receive and offer from the schools he's mentioned.
