So much for it being early in the process. Las Vegas Bishop Gorman defensive back Armand Perry has an established pecking order. It's short and it's to the point. He's ranked the three offers he currently holds and feels pretty good about the arrangement.
The transparency is refreshing. Problem is, that's all subject to change in a hurry. Perry recently returned from a junior day visit to Boise State. He left Idaho without a scholarship offer but feels one could come in the weeks ahead. If that happens, it seems his list of favorites will have a different feel.
"I liked Boise a lot," Perry said. "I liked everything about the program and the school and the town and everything like that. They said they like they way I hit and how I play. A coach told me the want to bring me back in the fall on an official, so hopefully the offer is going to come soon."
The main takeaway from his trip was a feeling of surprise. For as much as Perry enjoyed his time on the Broncos' campus, the scenery is not at all what he expected. So much for those potato-based stereotypes.
"I was expecting, like, a small town, but it's a lot bigger than what I thought. And everybody loves the football team. It's a football-based town. It's big but it's also a place where you can focus on what you need to do with no distractions."
For now, Perry is left waiting to hear from Boise State to play its hand as it relates to his recruitment and, maybe more importantly, his list of favorites. He has no other travel plans at this time but says he assumes he'll hit another junior day at a yet-to-be-determined campus in the near future.
Colorado State, Colorado and Utah are also involved in Perry's recruitment. And while the three school continue to be in touch, scholarship offers are yet to materialize.
As a junior at Bishop Gorman, Perry made 53 tackles, caused a pair of fumbles and intercepted one pass.
