The Clemson Tigers' newest verbal commitment has now finished his official visit in Tiger Town. Alex Pearson, a talented linebacker from Greenville High School, wrapped up his only official visit of the recruiting process earlier today.

"We ate breakfast this morning and then we went over to meet with Coach Bowden," said Pearson in an interview with "It went good. It was my dad, Coach Bowden and Coach Blackwell. My dad really enjoyed the meeting."

When asked how he would rate his official visit to Clemson, Pearson responded, "I'd give it a nine." The future Tiger has spent a good bit of time in Tiger Town over the years as both parents graduated from Clemson.

Tommy Sharpe was the host for Pearson and the two had a great time this weekend. "We had a real good time," stated Pearson.

The Greenville native is planning to work hard in preparation for his college career. "I will probably work out about 3 days a week," I'll be doing lots of running, and working out, things like that."

Pearson will find out later on whether or not he'll enroll this August, or if he'll have to wait until January of 2005. Either way, he's more than fine with his decision to pledge his verbal commitment to the Clemson Tigers.

"Either way is fine with me," added Pearson.
