Liberty makes the cut for 3-star defensive end Rashaud Pernell includes Liberty in his top 7. The Flames make the cut for the 6’3″, 250 pound defensive end product alongside Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Minnesota, Coastal Carolina, and Howard.

Pernell is from Highland Springs, Virginia where he attends Highland Springs High School. 247Sports ranks him as one of the top 20 prospects in the class of 2022 in Virginia and one of the top 30 defensive end prospects in the country. A number of teams missed the cut to his final 7 that had offered him including Boston College, East Carolina, Maryland, Old Dominion, Penn State, and Pitt.

Pernell, Highland Springs, and the rest of Virginia high school football teams will hit the field this spring as their fall seasons were postponed amid the COVID pandemic.
