WR Grant Perry of Brother Rice (Mich.) is latest to flip to Michigan


Michigan has put most of its recruiting energy in the 2015 class into other parts of the country, but a local player received an offer on Sunday.

Birmingham Brother Rice receiver Grant Perry, who played in high school with another member of the U-M 2015 class, Alex Malzone and preferred walk-on Jack Dunaway, tweeted that he received a Michigan offer.

Perry, a 6-foot, 183-pound, three-star receiver, has been committed to Northwestern since early December and ranked by Rivals as the No. 12 player in Michigan.

He added Monday night that he decommitted from Northwestern.

Though Perry’s intentions appear obvious, multiple reports indicate that a decision will come on Tuesday.

The receiver spot is one to watch in the final days, following the saga with California receiver Deontay Burnett taking a U-M visit over the weekend, reports indicating that he had committed and then his tweet a few hours later after landing back home that he had not committed.

Rivals and Scout both have reported Arizona State is interested in the Washington State commit.

It’s unclear whether the Burnett saga had anything to do with Perry’s offer.

U-M also hosted Van Jefferson, an Ole Miss commit who lives in Tennessee and knows this area well having grown up here as the son of former Detroit Lions receiver and assistant coach Shawn Jefferson.

Three-star cornerback Damon Arnette had Michigan as a finalist but announced tonight he committed to Ohio State.

Gainesville, Ga. cornerback Chris Williamson chose Florida over Michigan tonight as well.​
