The 6-foot-3, 285-pound defensive lineman can play on the inside at tackle and also on the outside as a defensive end. Pearson holds offers from several schools and is considered the top defensive player in the state of Kentucky's 2012 class.
Kentucky also picked up a commitment from Jeffersontown tight end/defensive end Daniel Ross.
Kentucky Sports Report spoke with a source close to Ross this morning who confirmed the commitment, but we haven't been able to reach him for comment.
Ross, 6-foot-5, 240-pounds, is a great athlete who can play on either side of the ball, but ultimately looks like a defensive end.
Kentucky Sports Report will bring you more on these two prospects as the information is made available.
