4* on each site, listed as a OLB/DE by scout and as an athlete by ESPN and Rivals. He spent his first two years in high school at Kalamazoo Central before moving to South Bend. One time ND commit. Not positive that he's being recruited as an RB, but based on Trieu's tweet, Michigan's need, and Dunn's reaffirmation, this is the most logical position at which he would be recruited. (EDIT: "wlubd" confirms that he's being looked at as an RB)
Considered to be a power back with good feet (as you may have guessed from the OLB/DE projection) he would be a similar style back to Dunn with very good and consistent ratings.
Resumed interest doesn't mean he's been offered or that he's a realistic possibility. It doesn't seem likely that he would end up in the class at this point, but as the coaches are expressing interest it's important to know who he is.
Chris Balas from The Wolverine confirms in a tweet that he heard from Perkins and that Perkins is considering taking a visit to UM.
Now time for a giants quote from Scout: "David Perkins is a transfer from Kalamazoo Central who boasts a 36.5 vertical jump. 10.1 broad, 16 reps of 185-lbs on the bench and a 4.15 shuttle. He finished his junior season with 783 yards on 85 carries, ten receptions for 180 yards (six total TDs) and 63 tackles, 13 sacks and 21 tackles for loss. Perkins says he can bench 325-pounds, squat 450 and claims a 39-inch vertical jump."
EDIT: "wlubd" also shared stats from this year: rushed for 1300+ yds and 20 td's this season.
