Ryan Perrilloux could very well be the best signal caller in the South and the entire country for that matter. He lives about an hour from the LSU campus and that close proximity gives Saban a little bit of an advantage that other coaches don't have.
The 6-2, 195-pounder has been spotted at a few of LSU's practices thus far
this spring and The Insiders asked him what he thought about the Tigers'
"I like what I've seen so far," Perrilloux said. "They run a real
good offense that is not that complicated. The offense is based around the
quarterback and that is what I like."
Perrilloux is looking for an offense similar to the one he has operated in
the last three years.
He is a dual-threat quarterback who has put up some big numbers over the last
two years in a shotgun offense. He has accounted for more than 6,000 total yards
and 75 touchdowns and those numbers have made quite an impression on college
coaches all across America.
"I'm pushing 40 offers," Perrilloux said. "I've got offers from the
whole SEC, the ACC, and most of the Big 12 and Pac 10. Right now I'm wide open
because I like everybody."
There has been some mention that Texas was leading for Perrilloux's
services but he set the record straight.
"Texas is at the top with LSU and USC but like I said before I'm wide
open," he said.
The only spring game Perrilloux plans on attending is the LSU spring game on
April 24 but he said he intends on making camps at LSU, Texas and Florida State.
As much attention as he has been getting one would think recruiting would
already be a tiring process but he is thoroughly enjoying the attention.
"It's fun so far," Perrilloux said. "I like it. I like the phone
calls and everything."
