Yeah about that.
Perkins was up front about planning to still take official visits to other schools following his commitment, so it was never a surefire ironclad lock that he would end up an Aggie, but most experts seemed to think A&M would be able to hang onto him. And it’s important to remember that may still happen. While he has decommitted from A&M, that doesn’t mean he has ruled out A&M (though once again, it’s not exactly a great sign).
Instead, Perkins will now commit (and assumedly sign a letter of intent) on National Signing Day (Wednesday, Feb. 2). It should be noted that another five-star defender A&M has recruited heavily, Shemar Turner, will also be committing that day.
Whether the Aggies make any more additions to this class or not, it’s still a monster class, and one that has the ability to propel A&M into the role of national championship contender. And if they don’t manage to add any other high-profile high school recruits, it wouldn’t surprise me if they looked to make some major moves in the transfer market.
