HIS RECRUITING STORY:
Growing up a Michigan fan, Grant Perry’s recruiting process was a little slower to get started than some of the other signees in the Wolverines’ 2015 class. Always on the radar in Ann Arbor, Perry was largely courted by MAC schools from the get go with the Big Ten conference coming calling with offers late in the process. Originally offering his verbal to Northwestern, Michigan always loomed as a great possibility. When the coaching staff in Ann Arbor decided it was time to offer Perry, the decision was simple and Perry is now a Wolverine, fulfilling a dream he’s had since he was a young boy.
“Perry is a technician who runs great routes and has sure hands. I've often said, I think you could put him on just about any team in America and he will find a way to contribute because he knows how to get open, catches everything and is a competitive kid. He catches the ball naturally away from his hands, is crisp in his routes and quick out of his breaks. Where I think he has been underappreciated is in his ability to make things happen after the catch. He's not a big kid, but he's not small either and he's added good size and strength over the last year. He's also not a track star, but he has good football speed. He's an ideal fit in the slot and a kid that will catch a ton of passes wherever he goes.” – national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu
“I was at a loss for words in a way,” Perry said. “I’ve been working and set a goal freshman year to end up there. Actually a funny story, when I was first born in Ann Arbor the doctor said I was going to be the next Michigan linebacker cause I was so big. It definitely feels good.” – Grant Perry
Perry would’ve gone somewhere else and been a thorn in the side of Michigan. Not the biggest, not the fastest or boasting a bunch of flash to his game, Perry simply gets the job done. This is a young man that can just get open whether it be in the slot or on the outside and has the opportunity to catch a lot of balls at Michigan.
