Jackson Perkins has amazing visit to Vanderbilt

It might have been his first visit to Nashville for Barrington (IL) defensive end Jackson Perkins but it certainly will not be his last trip to the Music City.

The Commodores hosted Jackson Perkins last weekend for their Junior Day event along with other budding recruits. It was the first time for Perkins to see the campus, the facilities or the city and it was an experience that he will never forget. 

“I can’t tell you how much fun I had on my visit. It was an amazing visit and it more than met my expectations,” said Perkins. 

Early in the process, Perkins has received offers from Eastern Michigan, Illinois, Western Michigan and Wyoming with interest coming from several others. 

Vanderbilt is one of those teams interested. The Commodore's staff began contacting the Illinois pass rusher several weeks ago and quickly convinced him to come down south for an unofficial visit.
