Nick Perry

I read on Rivals today, not that it is breaking news.  Nick Perry did not make it into USC because of Clearinghouse issues.  Comment: Chances he ends up closer to home.   Does this possibly put Michigan into the mix again for him.

I've heard that Perry and Michigan have mutual interest, but like formerlyanonymous said, he'll have to go somewhere and get his grades up, a la Marques Slocum (who made it and then didn't) and Quintin Woods (who never made it).

Marques Slocum…

Damn, I might have to change my name.

 

Does anybody know the requirements of getting in on a football scholorship? Don't you have to be "2+2=jello" stupid not to get in?

 

I am not trying to say football players are stupid or anything I just thought it was beyond easy to get in with a football scholorship.

...had less to do with poor grades and more to do with his high school transfer.  Not that this will expedite his getting into U-M, USC, MSU, wherever.  Just that it seems more likely he would "stick" once he finally arrives on campus than Slocum or Woods or your more run of the mill non-qualifier.

According the the Freep article I read, it would seem that all Perry has to do is pass a test, and if so, he would be fully locked in as a Trojan.  If he doesn't pass, he could play for a junior college/prep school or sit out next year at another 4 year institution.  He would hve to burn a year of eligibility though (no redshirt year). 

I believe that Freep article was the same tacopants had seen as it also said MSU was more likely.
