Conroe, Texas, is a talented program that has sent several good prospects to the next level over the past few years. Next in line is receiver/defensive back Roddrick Perry, a 6-foot-1, 185-pounder with 4.49-second speed in the 40-yard dash.
"What I do best is that I get open, and I read the quarterback," Perry said.
"He just gives me a signal and then I know what he's going to do. I love the post, post-corner, stop-and-go, anything that makes the cornerback look bad."
At the Texas 7-on-7 State Tournament, he made them look bad quite a bit.
Perry was a key player, helping Conroe reach the championship bracket. He did all of his damage on offense last weekend, but some schools are looking at him at defensive back, too. But he said he hopes to change that.
"Some colleges say I'm a defensive back, but I'm thinking after this year they're going to say receiver," he said. "I have some big goals, and I want to go out there help the team win, get a college scholarship and play on that next level."
The biggest suitors at this point appear to be Baylor, Northwestern and North Texas.
"I'm getting a lot of solid looks, mostly from Northwestern, North Texas and Baylor," Perry said. "Baylor came and showed up and talked me on the phone in the spring. I think they like me a lot."
Perry still has yet to achieve a qualifying test score, but he says he has a 3.4 grade-point average.
