Luis Perez, QB, Texas A&M Commerce
Chula Vista, CA | 6026 | 223 | 4.80E | 2018
Has a very live arm and can wing it all over the field, throws a nice deep ball; delivers the ball with accuracy. His fundamentals need major work. He was measured to have 0978 hands and 3200 arm length in the spring of 2017. Simple things such as carrying through on the fake during playaction and taking snaps under center are going to need countless hours of invested coaching. He simply has zero footwork at this stage of his game. He never played a single down of varsity high school football—he wanted to play quarterback but the coach liked him as wide receiver. The team played a Wing T offense, so his interest in football fell off and he decided to join the bowling team after his freshman season (has bowled 12 perfect games of 300). Began his collegiate career at Southwestern JUCO and broke his leg freshman season. Got married and transferred to Texas A&M Commerce, where he set the all-time school passing record in just two seasons. He needs to play in a lower level of football and hone his skills before having an opportunity for the NFL, he’s just not there yet. Sounds very open to becoming a coach if his playing career doesn’t go much further.
