LB Alex Pearson
6-2, 245, 4.75
Greenville High School
Greenville, South Carolina
The 6-2, 245 pound prospect told CUTigers.com that he received the offer last week when coach Blackwell paid an in-home. "I decided a few days ago that I couldn't keep it quiet anymore. I did receive an offer when coach Blackwell visited, but I have not yet committed to Clemson."
While Pearson admitted that he's not committed to the Tigers just yet, an announcement could come in the very near future.
"Right now I am about 95 percent sure that I will commit to Clemson. I may commit next time I talk with coach Blackwell."
Pearson will be traveling with his father down to Atlanta next week to watch the Tigers battle the Vols in the Peach Bowl. "I will be going down to watch the Peach Bowl with my father and his brother. It should be a good one, I'm looking forward to it."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding linebacker from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
The Tigers are expected to take 3 linebackers in the 2004 class, but keep in mind that the whip and rover positions in the Clemson defense are interchangeable and there is some flexibility here in regards to the recruitment of these kinds of athletes.
Two prospects, North Carolina native Dannell Ellerbe and Northwestern's C.J. Barber could move into either the rover position in the secondary, or the whip linebacker position on the outside. The Tigers have already secured the commitment of one player who can play in the inside in Allendale-Fairfax's Courtney Vincent.
Alex Pearson is projected to stay in the inside as well.
