Measuring in at 6-4, 227 lbs., Perkins recorded 36 catches for 539 yards and three touchdowns in his senior season. His 41.5 yards-per-game average was best among Pac-12 tight ends, and he trailed only California's Stephen Anderson in total receptions. Perkins finished his career with the sixth-most career receptions (66) and receiving yards (911) by a tight end in Washington history.
