Suntarine Perkins: Elite Missippi ATH would be a great ‘Get’ for UGA in 2023

Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s the Intel. This entry details the high interest in UGA from weekend unofficial visitor Suntarine Perkins of Raleigh High School in Mississippi.


RALEIGH, Miss. - The phone rings in the main office at Raleigh High School in Mississippi. There was certainly a reason behind it.

That is the small Mississippi town 71 miles away from where All-American RB prospect Branson Robinson resides. Robinson is committed to Georgia in the 2022 class.

He knows of another bonafide ballplayer in the ‘Sip, too. That would be junior Suntarine Perkins.

The phonetics behind that first name goes “Sun-Tear-Ian” but it will become evident he goes by a more memorable name.

“He has been to Georgia,” Robinson. “I’m just telling him how everything is looking up for Georgia right now and everything is going well. I tell him how he will fit in at whatever position he wants to play. Because he is really an athlete. He should be the No. 1 athlete in his class right now. I tell him how well he will fit in Georgia’s system. He’s a wide receiver and a running back and a very elusive guy. I know that for sure. Those are the two things that stick out for him. Once he gets in a college strength and conditioning program, he is basically going to be unstoppable.”

There’s Robinson in the 2022 class. There’s also Nakobe Dean in the 2019 class. There is a road being paved with Bulldog impact guys from Mississippi.

“Branson does want me to go to Georgia,” Perkins said. “I can tell that.”

Perkins can do everything for his Lions except paint the lines and wash the jerseys. Nobody will ever need to ask. He just helps out everywhere.

That call to Raleigh High was to link up with coach Ryan Hidgon. To line up the best time for a visit. When that member of the administrative staff heard an out-of-town reporter was on the way, they did the quick Sherlock.

“From Georgia?” she said. “Oh, you must be here to see ‘Get’ then. That’s the one everyone comes here now to see and talk to. Do you mean to tell me “Get” has folks coming from Atlanta to talk to him now?”

Why did she call him “Get” on the first reference? Why does everyone do that? There could not be a better intro to Perkins than that.

That’s because an internet connection will yield a lot of things about the 6-foot-3 junior. It will inform he’s rated as a 4-star recruit and the No. 1 player in Mississippi for 2023.

Further clicks reveal him to be the nation’s No. 5 ATH and the No. 57 overall recruit for 2023 on the 247Sports Composite rankings, too.
