Perry Still Eyeing Southern Miss

The 2011 class for Southern Miss has gotten off to a flying start. With six commitments already in hand, the USM coaching staff is leaving no stone unturned in looking for the best talent throughout the southeast. One player on the radar is Walnut, MS Running back Shaquille Perry. talked with him to update his recruiting.

Perry rushed for 1, 197 yards and 15 TD's last season. He also returned four kickoffs/punts for TD's and collected 27 tackles on defense, and earned a USM offer back in early February.

He has worked his way into becoming one of the best players in Northeast Mississippi. He has been offered by Memphis, South Alabama, and Southern Miss.

"My recruiting is going good, and right now I am still weighing my options," Perry described about the recruiting process. "I want to decide before the summer is out. I took my ACT and I want to see how that went before I see where I am heading."

He stopped short of naming a leader, but is very high on Southern Miss, the first team to offer the talented running back.

"I like Southern Miss a lot; I plan on going to some camps this summer," he said. "They had one two weeks ago but I was not able to go, but I'll hit one this summer."

The spread attack has attracted many offensive weapons since Coach Fedora arrived, and Perry is no different.

"I love the offensive scheme they run down there," he said. "They run the spread and I really like that offense."

When asked about the type of player he is, his answer was simple. "I would describe myself as a hard runner, that is the best way to describe me."

Perry has plans to make a stop at Mississippi State this week before coming down to the Hattiesburg campus again for a camp later in the summer. continues to provide the most up to date recruiting coverage of Southern Miss football around.
