“(Perkins has) a list of schools, not any in particular, Washington High head coach Antwon Jones told Scout.com's Brian Dohn. “It’s wide open.
“I think the best way to classify it is he likes Notre Dame, but he just wants to make sure he makes the right decision. We talked about it and he said he wants to take some other visits so he can see that he’s making the right choice.”
Reached via text message on Monday evening, Perkins confirmed that a trip to Baton Rouge was in the plans.
“Yeah, looks like it will be December, if not the (Arkansas game),” Perkins texted. “(I am) anticipating the state championship game.”
The state title games in Indiana are held Nov. 25-26 in Indianapolis, the same weekend the Tigers take on the Razorbacks in Baton Rouge.
Perkins, a 6-foot-2, 210-pounder, was committed to Notre Dame as an outside linebacker.
He finished his junior season with 783 rushing yards on 85 carries, 10 receptions for 180 yards and six total touchdowns. Defensively, he recorded 63 tackles, 21 tackles for losses, and 13 sacks.
