N’Kosi Perry Will Be The First In A New Breed Of Miami Quarterbacks
After recommitting to the Hurricanes in March, Perry has become one of Miami’s top recruits.
Throughout Miami’s football history, many great quarterbacks have strapped on pads for the orange and green. Whether it’s NFL stars such as Jim Kelly and Bernie Kosar, or Heisman trophy winners such as Vinny Testaverde and Gino Torretta, the ‘Canes have always developed pro-style quarterbacks well. Brad Kaaya is the current Miami star, and his pro-style passing abilities have him as a top 10 pick in most early NFL mock drafts. Despite the consistency of all the Miami passing legends, a different type of quarterback may soon be taking the reigns.
His name is N’Kosi Perry, and his abilities to make plays with his feet make him a quarterback unlike any Miami fans are accustomed to watching. Out of Vanguard High School in Ocala, Florida, Perry enters his senior year of high school as ESPN’s number 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation. According to ESPN, Perry comes in at 6-4 and weighs 178 lbs. Those are similar measurables to 2015 heisman trophy finalist Deshaun Watson, who was 6-3 190 lbs his senior year of high school, and was one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks as well. Not only are the height and weight similar, but Perry’s 4.86 forty yard dash time is even faster than Watson’s, who ran a 4.89 forty yard dash according to ESPN.
