UT Mini-Camp Report: Ryan Perrilloux

Reserve Louisiana standout <b>Ryan Perrilloux</b>, the early favorite for TheInsiders.com's nation's No. 1 QB, made the trek to Austin with his family to get a better feel for what life in Capital City of Texas might be like, to tour UT's facilities and of course visit with the Longhorn coaches again.

"It was cool, it was fun," Ryan Perrilloux said about his Longhorn camp appearance. "I liked the way they worked us, how organized and smooth it was in the way they ran the drills. I really worked my arm out. Even iced it down afterwards. It was a lot of fun."

His mom had a blast...

"She loved it. She likes Texas a lot. But it will be my decision in the end," Perrilloux said, explaining that it's not so much what his mother thinks about the schools he's looking at as much as it what he likes or dislikes.

As for his time with the Longhorn coaches, the Louisiana superstar said, "They visited with me just like everybody else. They didn't want to single me out and treat me any different than the other guys."

Perrilloux, showing wisdom beyond his years, understands the importance of the above.

It was again repeated to the 6-1.5/6-2, 210-pounder that the UT football brass would like nothing more than to sign two quarterbacks in this year's recruiting class. And the Texas coaches didn't beat around the bush regarding how important they think it is for them to snag a couple of signal callers.

"Coach (Mack) Brown told me that if I didn't want come there to just tell them as soon as possible," Perrilloux revealed, "But I'm not going to tell them that because I'm still interested in them."

As for his overall feeling about his Sunday visit, he said, "Texas stacks up pretty good. It was everything I thought it would be. Real nice campus, the biggest I've seen, and real nice facilities."
