"I feel pretty good" said Perine. "I feel like I've contributed to the team and I feel that they're backing me up on it quite a bit. The coaches are telling me that I'm back to my old self after this last game, so it's going pretty good."
Coming off of a game that saw him carry the ball 27 times for 230 yards, it would be easy to say that Perine is definitely all the way back from his injury. The talented runner says while he's feeling good up to this point, he thinks he has a little more left in the tank.
"I feel like I still have a little room for improvement but for the most part, I feel pretty good" he said. "It feels ok, but I still get that little tweak here and there but I feel pretty good."
With an offer on the table from Purdue, Perine says he's appreciative of the programs that are still recruiting him. While some schools may have been scared away by his injury, the big back has plenty of others knocking down his door in hopes of signing the talented Texan.
"I've received something from almost every school in the country so far but I'm receiving more and more from Baylor, Alabama and Oregon all the time now. Those are my top three schools."
As far as TCU interest goes, Perine says nothing has changed since our last update with him a couple of months ago.
"I haven't heard from TCU these past couple of months" said Perine. "Early on, I was hearing from them but since Coach Haverty moved (recruiting areas), I haven't heard from them."
While TCU may be looking in another direction at running back in 2014, Samaje Perine will no doubt have numerous offers to sift through before signing day 2014.
Will TCU enter the picture for the game breaking back or will an out of state school swoop in and steal him away? Stay logged on to HornedFrogBlitz.com to find out.
