In-State Tussle Over Perry Continues

Detroit King DE/LB Nick Perry has been one of the more hotly contested recruits for Michigan and Michigan State thus far this recruiting season. Each team has managed to surge to the head of the back at various times. Has there recently been another change atop his leader board?

The summer has been fairly quiet for former Detroit Mackenzie standout Nicholas Perry. With the news that his high school was closing its doors for good at the end of the year, the 6-4 225-pounder decided to transfer to Detroit King. Much of his offseason has been dedicated to getting acclimated to his new surroundings.

"We just had a 7-on-7 at Michigan State last Saturday," Perry said. "I did pretty good. I'm playing linebacker. I'm feeling comfortable. I'm kind of doing both.

While up in East Lansing, Perry took advantage of the opportunity to mingle with the Michigan State staff.

"They came to watch me," he said. "I kicked it with Dantonio."

The Spartans have made a strong push for the Motor City star, and he has definitely taken notice.

"Michigan and Michigan State are on me the most right now, but Michigan State is on me harder than anyone right now," said Perry. "I talk to them almost every day."

Despite the strong standing for the Green & White at the moment, Perry is far from settling on them (or any other school) as the college of his choice. He insists that there is still a long way to go in his recruitment.

"There is definitely time to catch up," he said. "I haven't really come down to a decision yet. I won't come to my decision until after my season."

"I'm going to try to get up to Michigan before the end of the summer," Perry continued. "I'm not sure when that's going to be. They don't have anymore camps, so I'm probably just going to visit up there and see how they're doing."
