Commit of the week: RB Lamical Perine


Lamical Perine might be on his way to four-star status.

The consensus three-star running back from Theodore (Ala.) has been on a tear this month.

Perine finished with a combined 356 yards and three touchdowns Friday in his team’s 35-28 win over Montgomery (Ala.) Park Crossing.

The majority of those yards came on the ground, as Perine went for 292 — his third consecutive game with more than 200 yards rushing.

He has 757 total yards during that stretch and 1,065 yards on the year. His midseason highlights through six games are below.

Perine visited UF for the Tennessee game and was impressed with Kelvin Taylor’s play. He plans to return to Gainesville this weekend as the Gators take on No. 3 Ole Miss.
