Huskers set to host 4-star lineman

One of the top recruits set to come in this weekend to Nebraska is Chris Perry. Perry, a four-star defensive tackle and the #19 rated prospect at his position nationally, considers himself a soft commit to Miami as of right now. He has taken some unofficial visits up to this point, but this weekend he is set to take his first official to Nebraska.

Nebraska has been hard after Chris Perry for some time. The 6-foot-4 and 298-pound defensive tackle from Keller (Texas) Fossil Ridge is set to see Lincoln this weekend.

"Yeah," Perry said. "I am headed up to Nebraska this weekend. I got that set up like the end of November."

That visit continued to slip because of Fossil Ridge's success in the playoffs.

"We had to push it back a couple of times because we were still in the playoffs, but we're out now."

"We lost to Aledo the other week. I think that we made it into the semi-finals."

Perry considers himself a soft commit to Miami right now. He claims that while he was there that he saw everything that he needed to see to commit.

That official to Miami is coming up in January for Perry and besides seeing Miami unofficially, he has also seen Texas A&M and Oklahoma recently.

"I haven't been to Miami on an official yet. I take that January 15th. I have been to Miami, Texas A&M and Oklahoma before on unofficial visits."

"Yeah, I was just at Oklahoma and I was told that they wanted me on offense. I want to play defense in college."

On his official visits, Perry is hoping to get a good look at the school as well as the town. He would also like to meet the people involved with the program.

"I want to get a good look at the community and the faculties. Also, I want to meet the staff and the players while I am there."

Perry has been real interested in Nebraska because of the coach that has been recruiting him. Perry knows that Nebraska graduates their entire starting defensive line.

"Coach John Blake has me real interested in Nebraska. Just the way that they are recruiting me has me interested. I want to play defensive line and they need some help."

Perry was dealing with an injury very early in the season. He said that as the season went along though, that the injury got better.

"The ankle got better. You'd see that from week two to week 6, I wasn't really able to do anything. After that, you see me having better games and chasing down players in the backfield. It got better."
