Raleigh (Miss.) four-star linebacker and Ole Miss commit Suntarine Perkins is playing in the state championship game Friday.

And Rebels head coach Lane Kiffin is in attendance for the game.

On3 National Recruiting Analyst Sam Spiegelman spotted Kiffin in Hattisburg, Miss., for the game between Raleigh (Miss.) High and Macon (Miss.) Noxubee County.

The top prospect in Mississippi, Perkins is also being heavily pursed by Alabama. Spiegelman had previously reported that Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Pete Golding would be in Mississippi to watch Perkins as well.

Perkins is the No. 63 overall recruit and No. 4 linebacker in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $152k. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
