Paul Perkins talked Monday about submitting his name for NFL evaluation, and more.
On the teams mental state:
Just going out here, and finishing the season with a win and getting ready for next year.
On it being good to practice:
Yeah, its good to get out here with the team and talk and bond and get out here and practice with the team.
On life after the bowl:
Sleep, eating. Not really. I'll talk with my parents and pray on it and see what happens. I have to talk to my sources about the whole process.
On putting his name in for an evaluation:
On what he's looking for in feedback:
I'm not sure. I'm not sure what to expect. When it comes back, I'll take what I have.
On if he'll use Mora as a source:
Of course, all these NFL guys and stars, Coach Foster, so I'm definitely utilizing those. I trust everybody, they all have my best interests in mind.
On potentially breaking the school rushing records if he returned:
That would be so awesome, to be in the record books, with Johnathan Franklin and DeShaun Foster, that's because of the hard work of the offensive line.
On if that's a motivation to return:
Of course. And to beat USC.
On losing to USC:
I hate losing. But losing down in the Coliseum was one of the worst things. And losing to ASU. And Stanford. All our losses.
On Josh Rosen bouncing back:
He's a great kid with tremendous poise and confidence in his arm. I don't see him taking any steps back.
On what he's improved on this year:
Definitely my durability and keeping my body healthy. I know I got injured in the Cal game.
