Despite playing in just two games during his junior season, Nashville (Tenn.) Hillsboro athlete Vincent Perry did enough to earn an scholarship offer from Kentucky. What made his accomplishment even more impressive is that he was actually playing on a torn ACL.
Following the season, Perry had his knee surgically repaired and even though he's on the road to recovery, the Wildcats haven't stopped their pursuit.
"They just want to see me healthy," Perry said. "They want to see me run and be able to move and cut without a limp. I plan on being back healthy in July and playing this fall."
Perry visited Lexington for a game back in the fall and said he enjoyed the trip.
"It was pretty cool," he said. "I got to talk to the coaches and some of the players and I thought the campus was beautiful. They have a good game day atmosphere."
Other schools are also continuing to recruit Perry, including Tennessee.
"I think I just have to rest and get healthy and show was I can do in the fall," he said. "But I'm still going to take recruiting trips this summer. In June I'm going to visit Tennessee and they're talking to me a lot about how they want to use me on offense."
