South Panola Standout Discusses Commitment

<b>Peria Jerry</b> made a commitment to Ole Miss today. We caught up with him to discuss his decision.

Peria Jerry was one of three Ole Miss commitments from South Panola High School on Monday afternoon. Why did he choose the Rebels?

"We can probably win the national championship there. It's also like 15 minutes from my house," Jerry said.

Who recruited Jerry for the Rebels?

"Coach Luke recruits our school. He's a nice guy, and real fun to be around."

What other schools did Jerry consider?

"I had offers from Mississippi State and Louisville. I just went to Ole Miss for the LSU and Arkansas games, and I liked them the best."

What position is Jerry being recruited at?

"They want me at defensive end, and I played linebacker this year. I like defensive end more, because I started out there in high school. I just make plays."

The 6'1 250 pounder will trip to Ole Miss this weekend, and Mississippi State the following weekend.
