Three-star 2022 prospect D’Arco Perkins, a 6’1 189 pound safety from Nashville with offers from the likes of Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Michigan, Penn State, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, and Virginia Tech, got a Florida State offer this week.
In a continuation of NoleThruAndThru’s State of Recruiting series, the recruiting soothsayer previews the 2022 FSU linebacker big board and the names you need to keep an eye on.
If you’ve missed out on any other of the position breakdowns so far, or if you want a refresher, you can find a stream of the entire series here.

Louisville, caught up in a ridiculous scandal you say? Why, I never:

This from our SB Nation sister site Card Chronicle sums it up best:
The first major negative Louisville sports story that this website covered was Karen Sypher’s attempted extortion of Rick Pitino, which began all the way back in 2009.
The nine millionth negative Louisville sports story that the site is now covering is former assistant basketball coach Dino Gaudio’s attempted extortion of the program he used to work for.
