Perry Ready for Season and Official Visits

Although he'll see plenty of action on offense for his new team at Detroit King, don't expect him to be a two-way player in college. Perry knows his skills belong on the defensive side of the ball, battling O-lineman to stretch runs to the sidelines or blindsiding QBs for a sack.

Nicholas Perry, when he's not chasing down running backs, plays offense, catching the ball as a wide receiver or tight end for his new team at Detroit Martin Luther King.

"I just gotta do what's best for the team," Perry says.

Perry and his King teammates made it to East Lansing High School yesterday to participate in a preseason scrimmage. Perry saw as much action on offense as he did on defense, running routes, throwing blocks and hauling in passes.

However, don't expect him to be a two-way player in college. Perry knows his skills belong on the defensive side of the ball, battling O-lineman to stretch runs to the sidelines or blindsiding a QBs for a sack.

Where those skills will be on display at the next level, though, is something Perry is not entirely clear about yet. Perry has refused to narrow his field and says, as of now, everyone has a shot at landing him, including Michigan State.

"Everyone's on my radar. I just have to take my (official) visits and get to, you know, go out and meet with the coaches and see how I communicate with them (and with) the players too," Perry says.

So when he makes his trip to East Lansing, what will he be looking for?

"Coaches, campus, academics, and the players," he says.

Does immediate playing time make a difference when deciding on schools?

"Not really—as long as I get in a program and understand it, (I'll be) able to produce," Perry says, noting that what matters is getting comfortable with the school he chooses.

As for the Spartans, Perry has already met with many of the coaches, including head coach Mark Dantonio. If he had to sum up what he thinks of the Spartan coaches in a few words, what would he say?

"Pretty good coaches. They're some pretty real coaches," Perry says.

Stay tuned as GSN follows the recruitment of Nick Perry and other important Spartan prospects.
