Hometown: San Diego, California
High School: Chula Vista High School
Notes: As a junior at Chula Vista (Calif.), Perez threw for 2,010 yards on 132-of-201 passing. He tossed 14 touchdown passes with just six interceptions and was named First Team All-Mesa League.
Checking in at 6-foot-6 and 215 pounds, Perez has ideal size for the quarterback position and is the prototypical pro-style passer.
He has been working with quarterbacks coach George Whitfield Jr. and has made significant strides since teaming up with Whitfield. Since 2004 over 30 of Whitfield's quarterbacks have gone on to make a collegiate team at some level from Division I all the way down to community colleges, and he is currently the youngest quarterbacks coach in the nation.
This week is huge for Perez's recruitment. He's currently on the east coast touring several colleges and working out at various camps. He's already camped at Michigan State and Ohio State and has visited Penn State and Michigan. He hopes to visit Maryland, Wake Forest, Virginia, Duke, and North Carolina before ending his trip with a one-day camp at NC State on Saturday, June 20th.
