Perry Schedules UNC Official

Joining a large group of Tar Heel commitments, Devin Perry has scheduled an official visit to North Carolina this coming weekend.

"I just wanted to get back out there for my second visit," Perry said. "I really want to be able to hang with some players [and] some coaches, and really just get the feel of North Carolina. I want to get a look at the academic program – I really didn't get a chance to look at that last time I was there. I just want to get a really good feel for the North Carolina lifestyle."

This will be Perry's first official visit. The 6-foot-2, 176-pound wide receiver from Memphis (Tenn.) University School is in the process of scheduling an official visit with TCU for the following weekend.

In addition to UNC and TCU, Perry is considering Vanderbilt.

"I'd say UNC leads by a little bit right now," Perry said. "It's the only place I've really been. I haven't really been to TCU, yet, and I wasn't at Vandy long [when I visited there]. I've been to North Carolina, worked out with the coaches and got to meet a lot of the coaches there. And I've just got a better feel for the school than the other two."

Perry admits that there is a chance he decides to bypass officially visiting TCU or any other school.

"I really want to see the other places first before I make that decision, but there is a possibility [that I commit this weekend]," Perry said.

If he comes out of this weekend uncommitted, Perry is aiming to make a verbal commitment shortly after his TCU visit.

Perry's only other visit to UNC was for Fedora's Freak Show last June.

"Everything went really well," Perry said. "I got a good workout with Coach [Gunter] Brewer."

Speaking of Brewer, he and Perry have a very unique connection. Brewer's father, Billy, coached Perry's father, Mario, at Ole Miss.

"It's good that my dad knows possibly my future coach's dad," Perry said. "That goes a long way with being able to contact him and being able to talk over stuff with him. I'll be able to have a good, healthy relationship."

Brewer and Perry have already started to develop quite the bond. The two speak on a weekly basis.

"We talk about getting up there and making the right decision where to go," Perry said. "Even if it's not UNC, he wants me to make the right decision for me by finding the right place for me."

As a senior, Perry had 51 catches for 1,100 yards and ten touchdowns.
