Perry, a 6-foot-2 senior guard at Lyon County High School, had more than 20 scholarship offers from NCAA Division I schools. He recently narrowed his list to Alabama, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Mississippi and Western Kentucky.
A consensus four-star prospect, Perry is the third commit in UK coach John Calipari's 2024 class and the second in less than a month. Point guard Boogie Fland gave his pledge last month, joining center Somto Cyril, who became the first commit of the class in June.
With Perry in the fold, Kentucky's class rose 15 spots in the 247Sports Composite rankings, moving from No. 21 to No. 6.
