Perkins, 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, committed first to ASU, followed last week by Brady White, 6-2, 186, a four-star recruit who is ranked as the third-best pro-style quarterback in his class in the nation by Rivals.
“I don’t think I’m better than him in any way, but I think I can compete with him just as good,” Perkins said. “I’m competitor. It’s in my blood. All the stars. It doesn’t mean anything. He can be No.1. But if we go and he’s not No.1, then he won’t be No.1. I’m ready for the challenge.”
Perkins is a dual threat who has improved his passing mechanics. He committed to ASU with the idea that he will compete at quarterback.
