Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College cornerback Keon Perry is becoming very familiar with winning considering he plays for one of the top ranked junior college programs in the country and that was reaffirmed after their 49-0 win over Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College this past weekend.
Now, the 5-foot-8, 165-pound speedy defender is starting to take a look at Division I opportunities out there for him and a few schools are starting to make their presence known. Perry admits, though, he's like to play his college ball back in the South.
"I'm hearing from SMU, Baylor, Ball State, and Washington State," Perry said. "That's who I know is in contact. My coach is getting in touch with Minnesota because I know they need corners pretty bad."
"I'm originally from Brunswick, Georgia, so I'd like to go back near home and play in college. Out of high school my grades weren't good, but I'm here and I've got a 3.1 GPA so things are going a lot better."
Ball State appears in the process of making Perry is first offer, according to the top juco corner. However, he's not going to do anything on a decision just yet.
"I'll probably take some visits like to Washington State, Georgia, Clemson, or any Florida team to see what's out there," Perry said. "I think I'll make my pick sometime during the playoffs or at least at the end of the season. I'm trying to stay open and see what all of my chances are."
"I'm sending out film though now, to see who's interested and then I'll go from there."
Coffeyville improved to 6-0 overall and are sitting atop the Jayhawk Conference tied with Butler (Kan.) Community College for the No. 1 spot.
