Perkins is a native of Cypress, Texas and had an outstanding high school career at multiple positions. He’s proven to be versatile on the field and can make a pretty quick impact at the Power 5 level.

During the 2021 season at the high school level, Perkins was credited with 35 tackles, 3 interceptions, 2 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He also carried the ball 78 times and racked up 1,352 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground.

At 6-foot-2, 210 ponds, Perkins has the frame to be a quality linebacker at any level. Now that he’s re-opened his recruitment, several schools will be making contact with the 5-star prospect in hopes of flipping him.
