Will Harold Perkins be better than Devin White?

I believe he will. He’s the TM7 of linebackers.

Who knows he’s only a freshman and played sporadically and three games. I think I’m just gonna enjoy the moment

That’s a big comparison bud. White is arguably the best LB on the planet at the moment.

I don’t think Devin played as a true freshman

Yep. He wasn't a household name and starting on defense yet.
But He made his name known wearing #24 and wrecking shite on kickoffs.

Come on man, a few games in is a bit early. One thing for sure is he is going to leave his mark on the program and be a beast for the SEC to deal with.

Love his energy and speed to the ball. He will be wreaking QB egos and it will be great to witness.

There’s always a possibility but DW also had one of the best defensive minds as his positions coach as well

He is certainly trending that way. Devin White was always a killer, who if he touched a ball carrier tha play was over. However, it took him until his last year at LSU to play at an elite level. Before that folks thought he was better than he was because they never noticed the times he was out of position. Perkins is picking it up way faster. He’ll never be the physical specimen White was, but he’ll probably be a better linebacker at LSU.

I know he stuffed a Bana RB down near the goal line in '16 and then filled in for Beckwith after he got hurt (vs UF?).

Different types of players. White is a true Mike LB, compact, powerful, fast, defensive QB. I’ll get hammered for this comparison but Perkins is a lot like Micah Parsons, a guy you can line up all over the place and he can do whatever you want. He can rush like an OLB, he can cover, he can play ILB and stop the run, he can rush middle and get home. White is an All-Timer at LSU, Perkins could be as well.

Can Perkins handle a Tennessee Walker though?
