Though he did just pick-up his first Division I offer last week, Poly 2017 De’Vondre Perry could be considered an under-recruited prospect.
Though one North Carolina school was able to seek out the talented small forward, he says his recruitment has been non-existent.
“I hold one offer from University of North Carolina-Greensboro (on July 13), they just told me they were excited when they watched me play, and they just loved the way I play,” said Perry, who told PHM he’s received no other interest from any schools, not even letters in the mail.
A 6-foot-6 small forward, Perry says he’s a slasher, who’s able to create his own looks, and next season as a junior he’ll have a critical role with the Engineers.
“I’m a slashing wing that likes to get to the basket a lot, and I can create my own shot,” said Perry. “I’ve been working on my shot more this offseason, this year I’ll be the main scorer (at Poly), so working on my shot and creating plays for other players will be important.”
He’ll play in one last live period event this weekend with Team Melo in Las Vegas. And is hoping the UNCG offer spurs many more — but if not, it’d OK.
“I’ve been playing pretty well this summer. I think all the work I put in this June is paying off, this coming weekend I’m planning to play the same way and I want to win the whole thing down there, that way looks and stuff like that will come in,” said Perry, who is hoping for, but not dependent upon getting more offers.
“I think about it pretty often, but going into my junior year I know that could be a big year for me, so I don’t really press about it too much.”
