06:18 AM ET 08.29 | Many Michigan State fans have wondered about the status of the state's top football prospect from the class of 2008, Nick Perry of Detroit Martin Luther King High School. Perry finished his senior year with a state record 36 sacks and helped lead King to the state Championship. The 6-4, 245-pound pass rush specialist signed with USC, but has yet to pass the NCAA Clearinghouse and has not been officially admitted to the university. Perry, who was rated the #1 player in Michigan by SpartanMag.com and the #2 defensive end in the nation by Rivals.com selected the Trojans over a final group of Michigan State, Michigan and Miami. If Perry does not get through the NCAA Clearinghouse, he would likely be released from his scholarship obligation by USC and could take a variety of paths. Perry could attend a Junior College, a Prep School or enroll at another 4-year school as a non-qualified athlete.
