Running back LaDarius Perkins of Greenville St. Joseph has verbally committed to play football at Auburn.

Perkins, a 5-8, 180 pound running back, rushed for 1,877 yards and 29 touchdowns as a junior for the Class 1A Fighting Irish.

“I have liked Auburn since I was real small,” Perkins said. It’s been a dream school and they send a lot of guys to the NFL.”

Perkins also received offers from Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech, Arkansas State and Louisiana Monroe.

Perkins can make his non-binding verbal commitment official on National Signing Day, Feb. 4.

LaDarius Perkins “I rushed for over 1,900 yards as a junior and I had about 400 yards receiving,” Perkins says. “I had 28 rushing touchdowns and five receiving touchdowns.”

Perkins is said to run a 4.4 in the 40.  Its nice to see we can go outside Alabama and recruit solid players.  Its also really nice to see recruits comment on how many ballers we have going to the NFL.
