One of the more intriguing in-state prospects in the 2015 class is three-star wide receiver Grant Perry (Bloomfield Hills, Michigan), who has enjoyed much team and personal success this season at Brother Rice HS.

Michigan has been keeping an eye on Perry, and he spoke with them last Friday, according to his Twitter account.

Michigan has yet to extend a scholarship offer to him, and he says that there were no new developments to come out of their conversations.

"They just came and said hi and asked how everything was going," he said. "Just the same stuff that has been said before."

Perry has received offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Kent State. As of right now, two of those schools are sticking out the most.

"I’m looking at my offers right now. I am probably going to decide shortly between Central Michigan and Ball State," he said. "Then we’ll see what happens after the season if anything else rolls in.

"I don’t have a timetable. It’s just whenever I find a school I fit in really well with."

Perry is a player to watch out for after the season when coaches get a chance to sit down and evaluate his full-season's worth of film. He says he has certainly noticed improvements to his game.

"I've definitely have made some big improvements," Perry said. "I think one would be what I do after I catch the ball. Last year I didn’t make many explosive plays whereas this year I've definitely been making some. I think the ability to get more open this year has helped me make a lot of catches."

He is a teammate of Michigan's 2015 quarterback commit, four-star prospect Alex Malzone, and he has seen a jump in his game as well.

"(Alex has) definitely got a lot better," Perry said. "He is already really good. He is faster with his reads now. His throws are better. He’s doing really good and progressing."

Perry has 68 catches for 1158 yards and 11 touchdowns on the season, helping Brother Rice out to an 8-0 record. The Warriors close out the regular season Saturday night against Orchard Lake St. Mary's in the Prep Bowl at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
