Dalyn Wade-Perry, the No. 2 defensive tackle in New Jersey, opens his senior season this weekend and is yet to set official visits, but there is still plenty happening with his recruitment.
According to Brian Carlson, Perry's coach at Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII, a handful of schools continue to be in hot pursuit.
"Stanford is showing a lot of interest," Carlson said. "UCLA, Penn State, Florida State, Michigan State, Stanford, Ohio State and Rutgers are all showing him a lot of interest. UCLA is doing a very good job recruiting him. Rutgers is in his top group."
Notre Dame, one of the schools Wade -Perry was high on in the spring, is no longer in the picture, Carlson said.
Wade-Perry visited Stanford in the spring, and he is awaiting to hear whether he gets accepted into the school.
"We should know about whether he is accepted in the fall," Carlson said. "One thing about Stanford, the coaches said they have no influence on admissions, so he has to wait and find out."
Wade-Perry opens his senior season Saturday against Blairstown (N.J.) Blair Academy. The Spartans play the next three Saturdays before games move to Friday night, so an official visit in September is not possible. The Spartans have bye the weekend of Oct. 15, so setting an official that weekend is possible.
