More offers for Pearman

As <I>Inside Carolina</I> reported in April, Charlotte Providence speedster Andrew Pearman has offers from Duke, UNC, and Tennessee. Now with the end of the May evaluation period closing in, Pearman has received even more scholarship offers.

"I now have offers from Duke, UNC, Tennessee, Wake Forest, Clemson and South Carolina," he said. "It's tough to say who is recruiting me the hardest. Maybe Carolina and Virginia are?

"I also like Florida State, Maryland, Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, Auburn, Alabama, and Notre Dame," Pearman said. "I hope to attend as many one-day camps as I can. I know I am going to the Virginia camp."

Pearman said he intends to reduce his collegiate suitors down to five before the start of his senior year, and wants to take his visits during the football season.

"I am not sure when I might decide," Pearman said. "If I go to a place and it feels right then I might go ahead and commit.

"The main thing that I am looking at is chemistry with the football staff. I am looking for a staff with a ‘Let's get after them' type attitude. I also want to get a feel for the campus and the area in which the school is located."

Dillon Mullis, Pearman's teammate on the offensive line, is also being recruited by the Tar Heels.

"I know that when I run behind him that the blocking will get done," Pearman said of Mullis.

Some schools are recruiting Pearman as a running back. Clemson, Notre Dame, and Duke have told him that he can line up in the backfield. However, the UNC coaches appear to project Pearman primarily at defensive back.

Wake Forest is looking at Pearman as a wing back in the Grobe offense, and Tennessee may have him play split end. Regardless, Pearman says that he does not have a preference where he plays.
