Ever since he stepped foot on campus, Roger Harriott predicted great things for David Perry. On Thursday, the 6-6, 230-pound defensive end from Davie University School backed up what his head coach had been talking about.
“I decided to commit to the University of Miami,” Perry said. “I went for a visit earlier in the week and believe it’s the best fit for me – as a student and as a football player.”
Perry, who burst onto the scene as a sophomore, has been improving each year. Something that Harriott felt would happen all along.
“David is a unique athlete who continues to learn and get better all the time,” Harriott pointed out. “He is a super kid who has really been a joy to coach and be around. The thing that we have always loved about him is he also gets it done in the classroom, which is very important at this school.”
Perry is the second player from Broward County to commit to Miami. Western offensive lineman Jonathan Feliciano committed after spring.
In addition to Miami, Perry was being recruited by UCF, Alabama, USF, Arkansas, Nebraska, LSU, FSU and Florida.
