Jordan Perkins is headed in another direction. Instead of the Pac 10, the Lodi High star running back is Big 10 bound. After verbally committing to Stanford before the start of his senior season, Perkins has changed his path and verbally committed to Northwestern on Saturday.
The Stanford admissions department kept delaying Perkins' admission to the school, despite his 3.9 GPA. With national signing rapidly approaching on Feb. 2, Perkins didn't want to wait any more. So he switched to Northwestern, making his decision during his official visit to the school which had already admitted him.
