Perrilloux Eyes the Tigers

Nick Saban made it clear that he plans on bringing in at least one top rated quarterback in his 2005 signing class. The bull's-eye on LSU's wish list appears to be Reserve (La.) East St. John's <b>Ryan Perrilloux</b> and for good reason.

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' offense.

"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."
