South Carolina State Roderick Perry has entered the transfer portal according to a report by Rivals.com. Perry's decision comes after the MEAC announced last week it is cancelling fall sports for the 2020 season due to the pandemic.

Perry is a graduate transfer and will be eligible to play this fall at his new school.

The native of Cary, North Carolina had a solid season in 2019 with 34 tackles, 14.5 tackles for a loss, 4.5 sacks and one forced fumble. 

In June, Perry was named a Preseason All-American by the College Sports Journal, further cementing his status as someone the NFL scouts were going to be taking a long look at this fall.

Assuming some form of college football is played in 2020, Perry hopes he get a chance to make further inroads with NFL scouts.
