Richardson (Texas) Lake Highlands coach Scott Smith knows talent when he sees it, and he sees a lot of it in his 6-foot-6, 305-pound right tackle Kent Perkins.

Perkins, the No. 81 overall prospect and No. 6 offensive tackle, has the size to be a bookend at the next level. But it's the other intangibles he brings that has Smith excited about Perkins' future as a Longhorn, and beyond, as it pertains to not only the game itself but life in general.
