247Sports is pleased to announce that Brian Perroni has joined the company as a National Recruiting Analyst.
“Brian is a tireless worker, well-connected and has a total team attitude,” said 247Sports CEO Shannon Terry.”
“When the opportunity came available to add Brian to our roster of national recruiting analysts, we jumped at the chance,” said Terry. “This is a talent and experienced-based business and it takes both attributes to make an impact. Brian has both qualities in spades, and he will help us expand our reach nationally, while giving our readers a proven resource in a key region of the country.”
Perroni was previously a recruiting analyst with Rivals.com from 2005 to 2012, where he concentrated on the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas.
Based in Houston, Texas, he will continue to focus on the Midland states for 247Sports.
Brian’s experience and relationships go well beyond his time as a Midlands recruiting analyst for Rivals. He also had prior stints as a Texas high school reporter, team-recruiting reporter for the Rivals’ Texas A&M site, and was the state of Florida recruiting analyst in 2010 before moving back to Texas to serve in his most recent role.
“247Sports is committed to building a talented and experience-based recruiting network where college and recruiting fans can turn for reliable news and scouting updates,” said 247Sports National Recruiting Director J.C. Shurburtt.
“We already had a strong foundation of talent with veterans like Gerry Hamilton, Barton Simmons and Steve Wiltfong, but the recent additions of Keith Niebuhr, Jerry Meyer, Chris Nee and Brian Perroni give us expanded coverage and reach, while doing it with industry veterans that have proven credentials and have built decades of key relationships in their respective regions.”

A coup for 247 and and asset for us.
We look forward to your input!
Barton and I, and Gerry Hamilton to some extent, will be covering Louisiana. I am amazed by the talent that is in the state and left both LSU camps this summer just shaking my head at all the top guys that LSU does not have room to take. I have been working to make major inroads in Louisiana since taking over there for Rivals in the middle of last season and I think a lot of people have noticed the increased coverage as well as the accuracy of the rankings. I look forward to working with Shea, Sonny and the rest of the guys here to continue to bring you the best LSU (and the rest of Louisiana if you're interested) coverage possible.

I was not assigned the state of Louisiana until most of the rankings had already been done. As for the 2013 and 2014 classes, I have made it a point to already have seen all the top guys in person. I have not seen Tevin Lawson in person just yet but I believe he is the only one so far in either of those classes. The two guys I like more than most other people do are Tre'Davious White and Josh Boutte. I think White has a chance to have the same impact as Mo Claiborne and Boutte is just country strong and will be very, very good once he gets the intricacies of the position down. Both are also two of the nicest kids I've ever met.

Great to have Brian on board and he will be an asset to us over here and will be another set of eyes and ears on Louisiana.
One thing we SHOULD NOT do is judge anyone based on things that happened in the past because many times there a lot of things that we have no control over and that is the case with some coverage that Louisiana has received from others. I have worked with Brian in several settings and he will be an asset to us all so let's welcome him with open arms

Welcome Brian, looking forward to reading your analysis.
Welcome aboard Brian!
Nowhere in my contract does it say I gotta make a fool out of myself, am I right?
Welcome, Brian P. I trust you will be given ample opportunity to see what Louisiana talent is out there now and you will be able to judge a state that is sending more than it's share of D1's to the next level for multiple universities, not just LSU.
Rivals never had a clue about 3/4's of the La prospects not on the "A" list and you made a great professional decision coming on board which such a progressive outfit has the staff here at 247.
I hope you have a great time imparting analyses on this state and the south, central and east TX prospects as well. LSU is a player for some of those and not a small one so I am looking forward to your addition to what is turning into a knockout group for this area.
