Valdosta (Ga.) Lowndes running back Darriet Perry received some very encouraging news during the past two weeks with regards to his viability as a college football prospect.
"I got my ACT score finally," he said. "I made a 17 on my ACT. It puts me right at qualifying. I got a 2.5 G.P.A., so I should be good to go."
A pair of schools have jumped in with scholarship offers for the 5-foot-9, 187-pounder.
"I've got two offers right now," he said. "Middle Tennessee State and Illinois have both offered. I've got interest in both of them. "
Perry also feels that other schools may pick up their interest in him now that he has a good test score.
"I am still waiting for the rest of the schools find out about my score," Perry said. "A lot of schools came through but my test score was low."
Perry added that several schools have been recruiting him
"Arkansas and UCF are real close to offering," he said. "I went to Georgia's camp and coach Mike Bobo told me to give him a call once I got my test score back. I enjoyed the camp and got a lot of work done there. I got a lot of drill work in with (UGA assistant) Tony Ball."
UAB and Florida also have been showing Perry attention.
Perry is a high (5.4) two-star prospect according to Rivals.com.
