A fast-rising name in the class of 2024 has been 6’2 Travis Perry. The guard is coming off a strong sophomore season at Lyon County, helping his team to a 29-7 overall record, and carried that success into the summer with Indiana Elite.  Perry has been a proven winner on the court and has a knack for scoring the ball as well as a strong feel for the game, which is why high-major schools from around the country are getting involved in his recruitment.

Patrick O’Brien recently spoke with Perry about all the latest, as he is taking his time with his recruitment and several schools are continuing to express interest his way.


Phenom: How has this summer been overall for you and how fun was it playing with Indiana Elite?
Perry: It has been awesome.  We had a great team on Indiana Elite with a lot of great players. It makes playing basketball really fun because we play together, unselfish, hard, and the right way.  All my teammates were great guys and great players and our connections helped us have fun and win lots of games.

Phenom: How was it finishing up at the Adidas All-American Camp and being recognized with some of the best?
Perry: It was an amazing experience, getting to train, get better, and compete with the other great players on the Adidas Circuit.  Definitely was an awesome honor and a good few days.

Phenom: Recruitment has been going well. What has been the latest for you and what have schools been saying they like about your game?
Perry: Recruitment has been going great and keeping me busy.  I’m blessed to have so many great schools wanting me to play for them. Mostly, I’m hearing from the schools that they really like how well I shoot the ball and my skill set and how high my basketball IQ on the court is.  They all feel like it would translate to the college game and help them win games.

Offers: Stanford, Ohio State, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Purdue, Western Kentucky, Ole Miss, New Orleans, Creighton

Phenom: Would you say that there are schools that are really recruiting and making you a priority early on?
Perry: Most of the schools that have offered me a scholarship are staying in close contact every couple of days or even daily.  I feel like they are all making me a priority and I’m getting good relationships built.

Phenom: Have you been able to make any visits or plan to?
Perry: I’ve been to Purdue, Kentucky, Indiana, Western Kentucky, Ole Miss, Cincinnati, Belmont, and Ohio State. I am working on dates for upcoming visits.

Phenom: Any of those visits really stand out in your eyes? And any specific schools you are wanting to visit in the future?
Perry: All the visits were good in my eyes, great opportunity to get on campus and see the coaches face to face.  My fall should be busy as I plan to set up visits to many of the schools recruiting me hard as possible.

Phenom: Any specific schools?
Perry: I’m still deciding which schools I will be able to get to campus this fall.

Phenom: What schools are showing interest your way but have yet to offer?
Perry: I’ve heard from North Carolina, Clemson, LSU, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Indiana, UCF, Murray State, Xavier, Dayton, Butler, and Pittsburgh.
