Perry, 5-foot-11 and 265 pounds, took his first visit a couple weekends ago.
"I went up to Ball State," he said. "I really liked it there. I liked the scenery. I liked the academics, the players were cool, and the facilities were nice. I could see myself playing there."
Next up for the talented defensive tackle prospect is a visit to Louisville.
"I'm going up there on January 12th," he said. "Another visit I plan on taking is South Florida. We just need to work on a date for that."
Perry said coaches from Ball State have already made in-home visits.
"Louisville is coming on Wednesday and South Florida's supposed to be coming soon," he said. "I'm gonna take my visits and then sit down and figure out where I fit in best."
