When the month of June arrives, on-campus visits for student-athletes can begin again all across the country.
That includes for Auburn football who new head coach Bryan Harsin admitted will have a busy summer recruiting. One of the first recruits they will host is four-star defensive lineman Khurtiss Perry who has set his visit for June 2.
Perry will be a busy guy with a visit to Tuscaloosa the day before he arrives on the Plains and then, two days later, goes north to Columbus, Ohio to visit Ohio State.
Stout, broad-built front-line defensive playmaker who’s not overly tall or long but plays simultaneously faster and stronger than listed size. Plays varied defensive roles with high activity and violence. Pursuit ability is terrific relative to size and projected position. Strong tackler with big-hit capability. Screams off the edge whether aligned as standing rush end or hand on the ground. In fact, shows outstanding pass-rush get-off, dip, and arc-running ability from three-point stance. Functional strength shows in disengaging pop and ability to fight through traffic to make plays vs. the run. Naturally plays to space, senses leverage, and bursts to nooks and crannies to disrupt. Shows some counter ability as a pass-rusher but can still expand move set. Physical upside could be limited. Motor and playmaking drive can occasionally run him out of a play. Elite defensive prospect who could possibly fit myriad roles depending on scheme. Plays like a big, powerful edge but could thrive as an even-front 3-technique. Projects to high-major level as one of the 2022 class’ top defensive linemen and owns long-term NFL Draft potential.
Out of Park Crossing High School in Montgomery, Perry is ranked the No. 8 defensive lineman and No. 44 overall player in the 2022 signing class.
