Just announced the addition of Brian Perroni to #247Sports. He is a superstar and helps us wrap up the state of Texas.
Here's the presser:
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.”

This is solid for Alabama because the Tide has been hitting the state.
We now have a complete team in the state of Texas and Perroni is the best there.
just straight up flipping the rivals crew
Elsewhere, white flags begin to raise.
Rivals > 247 in the last few months.
ruthless Lucky......ruthless. (g) ;)
Rivals may as well close the doors. Keep doing your thing, Lucky!
should we call this "Lucky-Raid"? ...wonder if Rivals offered him a free hat on the way out the door...
It really has been pretty cool to see this network grow from the very beginning. It is obvious that the foundation is laid, because what you guys are doing now is pretty impressive.
Congrats Lucky you just keep making your service the best partner. Roll Tide Brother
Congrats Lucky and welcome aboard Brian.
"Character" is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.
