4: EJ Perry, QB (Sr.) — Brown
A 2-star recruit out of Andover, Massachusetts, Perry began his collegiate career at Boston College. He was the No. 2 QB there as a freshman and sophomore in 2017 and 2018, seeing limited playing time.
Perry decided to transfer and out of a few options, he chose to play for Brown head coach and his uncle James Perry.
A record-breaking QB in high school, Perry showed his electricity again after winning the starting job. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder led the FCS in total offense with 367.8 yards per game, which is an Ivy League record.
Perry went 251-of-418 passing for 2,948 yards, 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also led the team with 730 yards rushing and eight TDs.
The 2019 First Team All-Ivy League selection enters this season a HERO Sports Third Team All-American.
