Just because spring practice is already well under way, that doesn't mean the Syracuse Orange are done recruiting talent for the 2013 season. They got one more commitment over the weekend, this one from outside linebacker Alryck Perry from Alabama.
Out of Glenwood Academy in Smiths Station, Ala., Perry earned All-State honors from the Alabama Sports Writers Association. Glenwood finished 7-3 last fall.
On his recruiting page at NCSAsports.org, Perry is listed at 6 feet, 1 inch, and 215 pounds. His 40-yard dash time is listed as a 4.43 with a 31-inch vertical.
The Daily Orange says he received no other offers but Scout says, at some point, Miami, Texas Southern and...Seton Hall(?) offered. So...I dunno. I'm guessing we're looking at a guy with sleeper potential who completely flew under the radar. Somebody at SU must have seen something they liked. Syracuse has had some luck with late recruits like this in the recent past (Jay Bromley, anyone?).
Welcome aboard, Alryk.
