Hailing from South Bend, IN, David Perkins was a highly sought after LB recruit during the 2012 season.  He may be the fastest linebacker recruit the Buckeyes have ever had.  Once a Notre Dame commit, Perkins gives us the inside on why he de-committed, why he committed to OSU and compares Urban Meyer to Brian Kelly.

Tell me what sold you on Ohio State?

DP: Some say it is Urban Meyer but I must be honest, Urban had almost nothing to do with it.  When I de-committed from Notre Dame, I wanted to go to a school that I felt comfortable at. As soon as I got on campus, something just felt right and I fell in love with OSU.

Why did you de-commit from Notre Dame?

DP: ND was the home school and I really wanted to see other places. They did not want me to visit other schools so I de-committed.

What have been your 40 times?

DP: During my sophomore season, there was an electronic clock at the Under Armor game.  It measured me at 4.43.  My fastest recorded time is 4.22.

With that type of speed, has the coaching staff discussed defensive back, either corner or safety?

DP: We have talked about defensive back as an option if LB does not work out. It does not matter where I play; I just want to play as fast as I can as well as to reach my potential.  I am not sure if I were to play DB where I would play? Corner or safety, in high school, I felt comfortable at both positions.

What is Brian Kelly like?

DP: He is about business and is a coach about his business. He knows what he wants to do and what he does not want to do. He and I are cool.

Compare Kelly with Urban Meyer?

DP: Coach Meyer is my coach and I love him. He is fiery, passionate, down to earth and a competitor.  He can sense the competitive fire in you early on.

What do you think are the needs of the 2013 class?

DP: I have to say we need wide outs, explosive playmakers at wide out positions.

Have you talked to Jaylon Smith? Do you think he ends up Buckeye?

DP: I have talked to him a few times. I think he is interested in Ohio State but I think he will go to either ND or another school. I think having Rod here is a minus because he does not want to be in the shadow of his big brother.

Which player impresses you the most in your class?

DP: Noah Spence! The guy is a monster. He is everything you want in a DE. He is good against the run, an amazing pass rusher, good hands and has all the moves.  All you hope is that he works hard and puts on any weight the coaches want. He is big, he is a dog, and he is a monster.

Have you heard much about Mickey Marotti’s workouts?

DP: My high school coach actually had him as a trainer and he says what everyone at OSU is saying, he is psycho.  I hear it is going to be hard.

Thank you David for taking time to talk to us and offer your thoughts and opinions.  Your passion for Ohio State already oozes and we look forward to following your career.

Good stuff, Mike. With this lad's attitude and skills, you have to believe there will be a spot in the back 7 for us.

I agree with you, very good stuff if I may say so. As a matter of fact, so good that I am writing a comment telling how good it is. And I almost never comment on blogs.

Thanks John, Just changed it.

I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information.

There are many such benefits in group coaching. I recently read a blog similar to it and this has also given me some important tips for my studies.

The best thing about Portland is it’s eden-like state. The environment is relatively untouched by the commercial spoils of the islands more popular resort areas.

If they miss on Vonn Bell, Lee can join Jayme Thompson in the secondary next year and fill that spot. On the other hand, if the staff is unable to fill the void at linebacker left by Alex Anzalone and Lewis Neal decommitting, Lee could bulk up and slide down in the future.

Social networks and the analysis of them is an inherently interdisciplinary academic field which emerged from social psychology, sociology, statistics, and graph theory. Georg Simmel authored early structural theories in sociology emphasizing the dynamics of triads and web of group affiliations. Thanks.
