Here’s how the student paper the Daily Pennsylvanian reported it:

The Virginia native entered Penn as a three-star recruit, with other high school offers coming from Brown, Cornell, Albany, Towson, and more.

Perkins was thrust into a more significant role than expected this season after senior guard Clark Slajchert went down with an ankle injury that would keep him out for the majority of the regular season. The 6-foot-4 freshman averaged 13.7 points per game, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game for a Quaker team that finished seventh in the Ivy League.

Perkins joins a Wildcats team that underwhelmed in 2024, finishing sixth in a loaded Big East, and missed the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive time after nine consecutive bids.

“I don’t know what to say at this point,” Penn coach Steve Donahue told The Daily Pennsylvanian.

“It’s a difficult one … I’ve been in this business a long time. The new world of ‘he’s-in he’s-out’ … my responsibilities are to the team, yet I still want the best for all my guys. So I don’t really know what to say.”
