The Essentials: 6-8, 210 lbs forward for United Faith Christian Academy and Indiana Elite
The Schools: Alabama, Baylor, Indiana, Missouri and Tennessee have all offered scholarships. North Carolina and Wake Forest have shown interest.
The Leaders: Perea said at the adidas May Classic that Indiana and Baylor are sitting at the top of his list. Indiana Director of Operations and Video Coordinator Drew Adams coached Perea on Indiana Elite before joining the Hoosier staff.
The Ranking: ESPN ranks Perea No. 25 in its “Terrific 25” for the 2012 class.
The Scout Says: “The 6-foot-8 forward is a physical specimen, and someone with absolutely freakish athletic ability. More than that though, Perea has a solid feel for the game and good hands around the rim and on the break. His skill set is still a little raw on the post, but his strength and athleticism make him a very difficult matchup for most forwards, especially at his age level.” – Rivals.com analyst Brian Snow on Perea’s play at the adidas May Classic.
