After a weekend visit to Ann Arbor, Dacula senior Jalen Perry announced his commitment to the University of Michigan on Monday afternoon.
Perry was a longtime Georgia commitment (since Oct. 2017), but reopened his recruiting in early October. Michigan and South Carolina emerged as the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder’s favorites, but the Wolverines won out for the Daily Post Super Six selection.
“I want to thank God for the opportunities that he has blessed me with,” Perry announced on Twitter. “I would like to thank my family, friends, teammates and coaches that have had an impact on my life and helped me become the player that I am today. I also thank all of the coaches that have given me an opportunity to play for their school. After lots of prayer and conversations with my family, I have made my decision. I will continue my academic and football career at the University of Michigan.”
Perry, projected as a cornerback, is ranked as a four-star recruit and the No. 171 player nationally by 247sports.com, which has him as the No. 19 cornerback nationally and the No. 22 overall player in Georgia.
Spending time on both offense and defense, Perry has Dacula in Friday’s state quarterfinals, where they will host Valdosta.
