Alex Perry Feels Sense of Comfort At Michigan

The Wolverines hosted one of the top defensive backs in the nation this weekend in Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman junior cornerback Alex Perry. He talks about his sense of comfort he felt in Ann Arbor, his conversation with members of the coaching staff and more.

One of the best defensive backs from the West Coast is Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman junior cornerback Alex Perry. His skill-set is highly wanted, which have the Wolverines very intrigued. They had the chance to impress him this weekend when the talented youngster traveled out to Ann Arbor for an unofficial visit. 

“The visit was overall great,” Perry told The Michigan Insider. “I got to meet the coaching staff, go to the stadium and even drive around campus to see some of the buildings. I didn’t get to go in the locker room because of a lacrosse game. My tour guide, Sam Popper, was a cool guy, who made it comfortable for me while going around campus, so that was good.”

While the 5-10, 170-pound four-star prospect got to see the campus and the facilities, he also chatted with defensive coordinator Don Brown and secondary coach Michael Zordich during his trip as well.

“I talked to Coach Brown and Coach Zordich and we were basically talking about the schemes of the defense and to see if I could fit in the program,” said Perry. “I could see myself fitting for sure.”

Scout’s No. 93 overall rated prospect admits though that the main highlight of his trip was getting to see the largest stadium in the country, the Big House.

“My favorite part of the trip was going to the stadium because I have never seen a stadium so big before,” said Perry.

After a successful visit to Michigan, the Maize and Blue will be a top contender in Perry’s recruitment and a destination he plans to return to in the future.

“Yeah, for sure I’m interested,” said Perry. “A big program like that will be in my top list. I don’t have a top list right now but they will be in it. It’s a good, organized program that makes you feel comfortable and its surrounded by good people. (Michigan will be a place) I'm going to take an official.”
