"I'm open minded to everything," Pearman continued. "My brother went through it and he's a really big help. He's got a lot of knowledge of the process and a lot to say about the schools. I just need to go to the schools and visit the [coaching] staffs and see which ones meet my needs and that'll be how I'll make my decision."
Would Pearman like to follow his brother to Virginia?
"That'd be wonderful," the South Mecklenburg back said. "I got to play with him one year at [Providence] Country Day and that was real cool. Playing with him on same team makes me work harder and strive to be better."
Pearman, who benches 275 and squats 395, rushed for over 1,600 yards this past season, scored 23 rushing touchdowns as a junior. He also scored two receiving touchdowns and another one on special teams, returning a punt return.
One of the top 25 players out of North Carolina in the class of 2004, expect Pearman's recruitment to comtinue to soar.
