Three-star safety Thaiger Flowers inspired by late mentor
Flowers and more are expected throughout the spring.
"We've had USC, Arizona, San Jose State, Arizona State, Colorado, BYU and Iowa State all come by this spring so far," said Flowers.
Flowers is planning on a couple of in-state camps this summer.
"I plan on going to a UCLA camp at the beginning of June and a Stanford camp mid-June," said Flowers. "I didn't make any trips to any schools for spring ball."
Nevada was the first offer and there is a connection there for Flowers as Nevada cornerbacks coach Courtney Viney is a Fresno native himself and he too was trained and mentored by Perry.
Viney played under Perry at Fresno (Calif.) Edison and with him at DB Guru before Viney entered the college coaching ranks.
So naturally, Viney and Flowers have one of the best relationships, with Perry at the center of it and their Fresno connection also a part of it.
"I have the best relationships with Coach Viney at Nevada and Coach (Sean) Saturnio at Army," said Flowers.
And those schools are among the ones recruiting him the hardest.
"I'd say Army, UC Davis and Nevada are recruiting me the hardest," said Flowers.
Still, with just one option under his belt, he's a ways off from making a decision, let alone naming a favorite.
"Right now, I don't have a time frame for my decision because I only have one offer and I don't have a favorite right now because I'm looking for more offers," said Flowers.
A three-star on 247Sports, Flowers is ranked as the No. 126 safety nationally in the 2019 class.
