Bruin Ties for Perkins

Chandler (Ariz.) 2015 quarterback Bryce Perkins (6-3, 180), has a pair of offers already, from Pac-12 schools.

The only thing up next for Perkins is to be the full-time starter for Chandler.

Last year, he backed up Utah State-bound Darell Garretson, but this year, he's poised to be the starter for Chandler.

Perkins was offered last summer by hometown Arizona State and by UCLA, where his brother, Paul, is a redshirt freshman running back and where another former Chandler quarterback, Brett Hundley, is entrenched as the starter.

"Arizona State was a big offer for me and my family, with them being close to home and the program on the rise," said Perkins. "And UCLA is of course definitely in the mix because it's a good school and my brother is there and so is Brett and my brother is recruiting me a lot, telling me how much he likes it there. But in the end, he said it's my choice. At the end of it, whichever team offers me the best chance to play, that's where I'll go."

Aside from those two offers, Perkins said he talks regularly with Oregon, who came by during the season to check in on him.

"Oregon talks with me a lot and they've showed me a lot of interest and told me how I'd fit their system and their offense," said Perkins.

Perkins plans to camp at Arizona State, Oregon and UCLA this spring and summer, then turn his attention to leading Chandler this fall.

This past weekend, Perkins was at the Los Angeles NFTC and was pleased with how he performed.

"It was fun to get out there and compete with the great quarterbacks and to see where I stand," said Perkins.
