New Michigan Man: WR Grant Perry

\”Finally!\” That is likely the first thing wide receiver Grant Perry thought when he landed his offer from Michigan. After multiple trips to Ann Arbor and putting together one of the best high school careers in state history, the Brother Rice star received a last minute offer from Coach Harbaugh and has committed to his hometown Michigan Wolverines.

Proud to announce that I have officially committed to play football at the University of Michigan! #GoBlue #Team136

Calling Perry is one of the best high school receivers in state history is no stretch. He was Alex Malzone\’s top target throughout his career, which included three state titles, the state record for receptions in a season (105) and the 2nd most reception yards in a season (1,727 yards). Numbers say a lot, but as for his playing style, he is a tough, quicker than fast, smart route running pass catcher with great hands.

As for his recruitment, he didn\’t receive his first Power 5 conference offer until Northwestern came forward in late November. That was the top offer on the board going into the offseason, and after a visit to Evanston, he decided to jump on it before it was too late. And then his dream offer finally came through. While the offer was kept quiet at first, he didn\’t wait long to pull the trigger just a day before National Signing Day.

Height: 6\’0\’\’

Weight: 185lbs

Notable Offers: Northwestern, Central Michigan, Buffalo, Nevada

Rankings: Scout (3*, #59 WR) – Rivals (3*, #80 WR) – 247Sports (3*, #110 WR) – ESPN (3*, #128 WR)

As for the Rest of the Class: Perry is the 10th commitment in the class and 2nd receiver. Though he may not be the last receiver with Van Jefferson looking like a very good possibility. Other names to look out for to fill the remaining 3-5 spots include Chris Clark, Mike Weber, Karan Higdon, Tyrone Wheatley Jr, Jarius Adams and Iman Marshall.
