ATH Dolphus Pearson Profile
Southeast Raleigh High School 2012 running back/linebacker Dolphus Pearson recently told CUTigers.com that Caldwell visited his school early last week.
"It was Tuesday, I think," he said. "Other schools that have visited are UNC, N.C. State, Appalachian State, The Citadel and Wofford."
Georgia Tech defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator Andy McCollum is expected to drop by before the end of the month.
Pearson doesn't claim any offers, but he believes that could change.
"I believe Georgia Tech is close to offering me, as well as Clemson. I talked to coach Caldwell. He's saying how well the guys really like me down there by having me down there as a linebacker," he said. "He's been telling me about the one-day camp and he was saying they love my tape and like my size an inside linebacker. Hopefully there's an offer coming from there soon."
Clemson first evaluated Pearson as an H-back.
"Coach Caldwell let me know that Clemson is a place that recruits an H-back that's around 6-3 or 6-4. I'm roughly at 6-foot right now," he said. "That's when they said they were going to change it up and recruit me as a linebacker."
Georgia Tech is recruiting him as a B-back.
His first visit to Clemson will be later this summer when he's down for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"I know I'm definitely going to visit Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, South Carolina and Virginia Tech. We're trying to get the transportation situation so I could also go down to TCU," Pearson said.
As a junior, he had 55 tackles and four sacks in eight games.
