One of the top wide receiver prospects in Michigan for the class of 2016 will be Mt. Pleasant’s Kalebb Perry. The 6-foot-2, 165-pound standout has been in East Lansing a few times recently. Michigan State is looking to get a jump on recruiting for not only the class of 2015, but 2016 as well, and Perry is one of the players the MSU staff has identified as a top target.
“I have been on two visits to Michigan State,” Perry told SpartanMag.com. “I was there for the football game against Minnesota and I also was there for the basketball game against North Carolina. I had a good time there.”
Perry had an outstanding sophomore season with 23 catches for 550 yards. Perry is also an outstanding basketball player and track athlete. Perry excels in the high jump — he broke a 31-year-old school record in that event as only a freshman, clearing 6-foot-7½ inches.
Perry is still in the early stages of recruiting and learning about schools. He hopes to use the coming months to check out some other schools and compare them to MSU.
“I’m going to go see Tennessee, West Virginia, and Clemson for sure,” Perry told Tim Sullivan of The Wolverine. “I’ve been a Clemson fan for a little while. I liked the colors when I was little, and it just stuck.”
Ohio key for 2015
The Spartans have five commitments from Ohio for the class of 2014 and are now turning their attention to the class of 2015. Below are three prospects the staff is already focused on
Cincinnati Winton Woods OT George Brown
The 6-6, 253-pound Brown is one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the nation. Rivals.com ranks him a four-star recruit and the No. 115 player in the class of 2015. He already has over 30 scholarship offers from teams such as MSU, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Virginia Tech and Auburn. MSU offered him early in the process and they have been able to have him on campus multiple times in the past year. Brown was in East Lansing to watch the Spartans beat Michigan on Nov. 2.
Hubbard RB Larry Scott
The 6-1, 215-pound Scott has been tearing up opposing defenses for several years now and is considered one of the top running backs in the nation for 2015. Rivals.com ranks him a four-star recruit and the No. 54 player in the nation. The Spartans have already extended Scott a scholarship, as have Tennessee, West Virginia, Illinois, Kentucky and Cincinnati. Scott has indicated that he wants to be a bell-cow type of running back in an offense that best utilizes his skill set. The Spartans pro-style attack is a positive aspect in his recruitment.
Cincinnati Moeller DT Elijah Taylor
The 6-3, 240-pound Taylor already has an impressive list of scholarship offers that includes MSU, Notre Dame, West Virginia and Illinois. His play this fall was a key reason why Archbishop Moeller was able to repeat as state champions. Taylor could project on either side of the ball, but most see him as being an anchor on the defensive line. The Spartans have signed four players from Archbishop Moeller under Mark Dantonio including All-America Greg Jones and current starter Marcus Rush.
